Method: 

For the roasted vegetables, preheat the oven to 350°F. Put 1/2 cup of the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a small bowl and stir well to make a marinade. Transfer one-quarter of the marinade to a large bowl, add onions and toss to coat. Transfer onions to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and set aside. Repeat process with peppers, mushrooms, and eggplant, tossing them separately with the marinade and arranging them each on their own baking sheet. Roast vegetables, working in batches if needed, for about 30 minutes, or until they are well caramelized and have given up much of their moisture. Set aside. Meanwhile, toss garlic with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and roast in a small metal oven-proof bowl, covered with aluminum foil, for about 20 minutes, or until soft. Set vegetables aside.

Meanwhile, for the pasta, mix cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato starch, rice flour, and xanthan gum in an electric stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add eggs and oil, beating on high speed for 3 minutes. Turn the dough onto a rice floured board, and divide it into 9 portions. (A pasta machine is helpful at this point, though generations of cooks have rolled dough by hand.) Crank or hand roll each portion of dough into a sheet approximately 3- x 15-inches. Set pasta aside in a single layer on a lightly floured baking sheet until ready to use.

For the lasagna, put tomatoes, oregano, 2 tablespoons of the basil, salt and pepper into a large bowl and stir to combine. Add roasted vegetables and toss well. Set sauce aside. Put ricotta, remaining 2 teaspoons of the basil, and egg into a second bowl and stir well. Put mozzarellas and Parmesan into a third bowl and toss well. Set sauce, ricotta mixture, and cheeses aside. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9- x 15-inch baking pan with oil. Arrange lasagna in pan in the following layers: one-fourth of the sauce, 3 pasta sheets, one-third of the ricotta mixture (spread carefully to avoid tearing pasta), and one-quarter of the cheeses. Repeat process two more times, topping it with all of the remaining cheeses. Bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes, or until the cheese starts to brown nicely. Let the lasagna rest for 10 minutes before serving, then garnish with more basil, if you like, and serve.
