If you like Italian Food or Anti-pasta Italian Food…then you came to the right place.
I called this recipe an International Lasagna as food items from other cultures were added in. Like goat cheese from the Mediterranean, sesame seeds and oil, including soy sauce and fresh ginger from Asian cooking. Not to forget tortillas from the Mexican cuisine. Though we did use 100% whole wheat tortillas.
Here is what you will need:
First though preheat your oven to 350 F degrees.
1 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. molasses
3 tbsp. sesame seeds
3 tbsp. sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
3 tbsp. soy sauce
2 -14 oz. cans stewed tomatoes
Mix together in a small bowl: honey, molasses, soy sauce, sesame oil, minced garlic, minced ginger and sesame seeds. Set aside.
But you will need the following:
1 cup frozen string green beans
1 cup frozen mix peas and carrots
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 large breast chicken, cooked and cut into small chunks
2 green onions, diced
1 cup chicken broth, no salt added
6 (7-8 inches) whole wheat tortillas
2 – 6 oz. can tomato sauce
Cook rice according to package instructions with 1 cup of chicken broth and 1 cup water. When rice is done add the diced onions and frozen vegetables and simmer 2 to 3 minutes allowing frozen vegetables to thaw and warm up. Turn off heat and set aside.
Cut up chicken breast in small chunks and mix in with rice mixture along with the honey mixture and one 6 oz. of tomato sauce till all mixtures are well incorporated. Set aside.
Next take your stewed tomatoes and pour them into a strainer and strain off liquid. Put the tomatoes into a food processor and puree them.
Take a 13 x 9 inch baking pan and pour 1/4 cup of the pureed tomatoes and spread it over the bottom of the pan. Place two whole wheat tortillas over the sauce.
Now pour 2 cups of the meat mixture over the tortillas. Spread a hand full of the two cheese(goat cheese and mixed Italian cheeses)over the meat mixture. Repeat this process two more times. Top with one 6 oz. tomato sauce and cheese. Place the prepared pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Plate and serve.
