I pulled this from the Get Cracking website and it just seemed so weird that I had to try it. Plus I have a million wonton wrappers in my freezer that I bought in anticipation of making more gyoza (which of course I haven’t done).
First we’re going to roast a few vegetables. Put your oven on the broil setting. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and plop on your veggies. I have here 2 red peppers and 3 Italian zucchini (or at least that’s what the sign at Costco called them).
Roast them until the peppers are all charred and black.
Let them cool for a bit, then peel the skins off the red peppers.
Then we’re going to boil ourselves some eggs. In a medium saucepan, cover 6 eggs with water and bring it to a boil.
When it’s boiling, remove the pot from the heat, cover it with a lid, and leave that to stand for 20 minutes. This is a different way to produce hard-boiled eggs than I’m used to, but I figure that the Egg Farmers of Canada know what they’re talking about.
Drain the eggs, run cold water over them to cool them off, then peel and slice them.
I liked how the cold water looked so much I took two more pictures of it.
While the eggs are doing their thing, finely chop 1 small onion and add it to another saucepan with a drop of olive oil and 2 cloves minced garlic (or 2 teaspoons minced garlic from a jar). Sauté until everything is soft and squidgy.
Chuck in a package of baby spinach and stir that around until it’s all wilted.
Pour in a jar/can of pasta sauce and bring that puppy to a boil, then remove it from the heat.
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Get all your ingredients ready to go.
While you’re at it, chop up those roasted vegetables of your’n.
Find yourself an 8″ baking dish (or thereabouts) and ladle about a 1/2 cup of the sauce into the dish. Line the bottom with some of your wonton wrappers, making sure to overlap them a little bit.
Spread that with some more of the sauce you have left, then some of your eggs.
Plop on a some of your chopped vegetables, then some grated mozzarella cheese (I’m not going to limit you on your cheese — we all have our preferences/weaknesses).
Do another layer of wontons, sauce, eggs, vegetables, and cheese.
When you are out of vegetables and eggs you should still have some sauce, cheese, and wontons left.
Any remaining wonton wrappers you’ve got, spread them over the top, then the rest of your sauce, and then some more cheese. Bake in your 350°F oven for 30 minutes, until you can see the sauce at the centre of the dish bubbling up through the top. Let it stand for a few minutes before you cut it, just so the rowdiness can calm down. Serves SIX.
