Even if you are not a vegetarian, you will still love this delicious meatless meal idea. Trust me, my family is known to be picky and they even enjoyed this! I was surprised that the ones that are normally big meat eaters even enjoyed this!

The best part…. make two of these. One for tonight and one for the freezer. You will do the same amount of work but you will have dinner ready for an easy weeknight meal. This is such a time saver and something I try to do as much as possible. I love to cook once and eat twice! I even use these disposable pans to make clean up a breeze for the freezer meals.

I love having alternatives that are healthy, quick and inexpensive.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 oz.) package lasagna noodles
  • 8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large zucchini, cut in half (lengthwise) and sliced
  • ¾ cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • ¾ cup onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 (24 oz.) jars pasta sauce ( I have also used this Homemade Pizza Sauce instead of pasta sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 (15 oz) container part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Easy Vegetable Lasagna Recipe:

1. Cook the lasagna noodles in a large pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, or until al dente. Rinse with cold water and drain.

2. Add olive oil to a large saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in mushrooms, green peppers, zucchini, onion and garlic and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in pasta sauce and dried basil; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.

3. Mix together ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and eggs.

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9×13 inch dish. Spread 1 cup pasta sauce into the bottom of the baking dish. Layer lasagna noodles, ricotta mix, and sauce (in that order). Repeat layering, and top with remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese.

5. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

How to freeze Meatless Lasagna:

Now if you want to freeze this for a future meal, simply don’t cook it. Instead wrap it with saran wrap and place it inside a freezer bag. I like to place my casseroles in a foil pans. Then after I cover them in saran wrap, I place the entire casserole in 2 gallon size freezer baggies. I then reuse those 2-gallon bags over and over again since they never touch food. They are just added protection against any freezer burn. I love being able to reuse the bags.

What vegetables do you use in Vegetable Lasagna?

I have been learning all about Gardening for Beginners and can’t wait to try even more delicious veggies in this lasagna! Depending on the time of the year, there are so many fresh options. Squash is really good paired with the zucchini. The pasta sauce is also amazing made with garden tomatoes. Green onions, red onions or sweet vidalia onions are delicious sauteed with green pepper. The more vegetables the better in this lasagna. It blends so well with the ricotta cheese. You can also sneak in some carrots! I have even added diced egg plant to the vegetable lasagna. Yum! What is your favorite vegetable combination?

This recipe is so good that you will want to share! I have one of these handy Casserole Carrier’s. It is insulated and so convenient for travel. It’s very easy to transport this yummy lasagna to pot luck’s and holidays. It’s the perfect meal to take someone that is recovering from surgery or perhaps a new mom! This is also the carrier I use to easily transport these Easy Breakfast Casserole Recipes I make! I used to just try putting dishes in a box or wrapping in a towel and I had so many mishaps in the car. You just can’t imagine the mess! Once I finally bought one of these carriers, it has saved me so much time from cleaning spills in our vehicles!

How do you make lasagna without meat?

I think the more veggies the better! This recipe calls for ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan. However, it’s excellent with whatever cheese you have on hand. I have used cheddar and a Colby jack blend. Sometimes, I use this Homemade Pizza Sauce instead of marinara sauce. It’s even better with fresh tomatoes. Serve it with Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks or learn how to freeze garlic bread! I love to dip the bread in the lasagna and get very last bit of the amazing sauce. This is also really good with a simple green salad! Yum!

If you like this, definitely try this Easy Crock Pot Vegetable Soup Recipe. It’s full of delicious veggies and tastes amazing.

We love a good comfort meal around here and this Meatless Lasagna does not disappoint. Try it today and it is sure to be a hit. It is now on our regular meal plan rotation. So good!

  1. 5 stars
    Made this a few times and have rave review from all my guests! I even cheat and use the “no cook” lasagna noodles and it’s so easy and awesome!

  2. Thalia – When I freeze this lasagna, I defrost it out overnight in the refrigerator and make sure it’s completely defrosted before baking so then the baking time stays the same.
