    6                    Pieces Lasagne, uncooked
    2       ts           Vegetable oil
    2                    Red bell peppers -- diced
    3                    Garlic cloves -- minced
   28       oz           Canned crushed tomatoes
      1/2   ts           Salt
   10       oz           Frozen peas -- thawed
    1       pn           Saffron
                         Grated zest of 2 oranges*

                         -(part-skim), divided
 
   Cook lasagne according to package directions; drain.
   
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Warm the oil in a
   large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add peppers
   and garlic. Saute until peppers are very soft. Add
   tomatoes, saffron, orange zest and salt. Remove from
   heat and set aside 1 cup of tomato mixture.
   
   Spread a little of the tomato mixture in the bottom of
   a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking dish. Cover with four pieces
   of lasagne (three lengthwise, one widthwise) and then
   continue by adding cheese, peas, tomatoes and lasagne.
   Top with reserved tomatoes and cheese. Bake uncovered
   until browned on top and bubbly, about 40 minutes.
   
   *The “zest” of an orange is the outermost part of the
   peel. Do NOT use the white part of the peel (the
   “pith”).
