Vegetable lasagna

Picture of vegetable lasagna
I love vegetable lasagna! It's a little lighter than regular lasagna and has tons more flavor. I've tried several times to make vegetable lasagna with zucchini and squash as the noodles and it's never really turned out that well so this is my compromise!

I use zucchini and squash as two of the layers in this vegetable lasagna, but I still use lasagna noodles to help soak up some of the extra moisture and add more stability. :D

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
Please note that I had a brain fart and assembled double of some of the ingredients for this photo. I was rushing. I dunno.

Lasagna Ingredients:
  • tomato sauce or canned tomatoes for making sauce - at least 4-6 cups
  • one box no boil lasagna noodles
  • one zucchini
  • one yellow squash
  • one jalapeno (or bell pepper!)
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 15 oz container ricotta cheese
  • 16 oz mozzarella
  • 1/2-1 cup parmesan
  • Italian seasoning
  • crushed red pepper
Sauce Ingredients:
  • one 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • couple tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 pound ground beef or Italian sausage
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of crushed red pepper
  • pinch of oregano
  • pinch of basil

You don't have to stick with the veggies I used, either! You can add mushrooms, greens, more onions, etc.

Also, I really really recommend the no boil lasagna noodles. I was at one point a total snob about it and would never buy them, but they're actually pretty great! I like that it's less work for me while assembling, and they stay nice and firm while cooking, too. :D

Looks and sounds good. The name is slightly misleading, though, since the gravy uses meat.

Yes, I agree! I would use a different title... Vegetarians would not want to eat this. However, love the concept and going to try it out!! I make a mean lasagna but always up for something different. Some days I feel like I make the same dishes over and over again. Love to keep my taste buds pleasantly surprised with new recipes. Thank you for posting!! Looks delicious! (PS I love the ready to cook noodles myself! Saves tons of prep time and mess!)

Looks good. Tomorrow I might even make it.

My ADD and mild dyslexia created a feedback loop with the title such that the first letters of the words got switched, while other letters were deleted. Hilarity ensued. That said, this looks really good!
