Easy Vegetarian Lasagna Recipe
Okay, so “easy” may be stretching the truth here
because we all know that Lasagna
takes quite a bit of time to make. . .
(so to me it is hard)
but it is a great recipe none the less.
I made it for dinner tonight
since I had a few hours to be at home due to
a fierce storm with a tornado warning.
Here we go. . .
Preheat the oven top 350.
Cook the lasagna pasta with heavily salted water.
To avoid the pasta breaking, wait until the water is boiling,
then turn it down to medium before adding them. Stir gently.
While those are cooking, add a
16 oz. container of cottage cheese
and a pint of ricotta cheese in a bowl
with 2 eggs and mix.
Add pepper, onion salt and garlic powder and mix again.
(I don’t measure – but perhaps 1/2 tsp of each)
In a baking pan. . .
Layer jar sauce
with the pasta, cheese mix and
vegetarian (fake) sausage or beef crumbles
until you have built up a fine lasagna.
(You can add every veggie you love too,
like baby spinach leaves and thinly sliced yellow squash.)
Bake for 30 min.
Remove and add shredded mozzarella to the top.
Bake for about 10 more minutes until cheese is melted.
You may have to cook a bit longer
depending on the thickness of your
lasagna, just make sure that lasagna is cooked through!

I’m a vegetarian and I’m always looking for good recipes!! Yum!
I would use ground round I think but this sounds fantastic. I love a good lasagna.
I make all my sauces from scratch, but I won a case of sauces by Delallo. Let me tell you, these sauces DO NOT taste like they came from a jar. I recommend you try their different sauces that they make!
We use beef or chicken in our lasagna. This sounds good though.
I like to use Classico sauce.
When I was a vegetarian I made a lot of foods with those soy crumbles that were supposed to be like hamburger. I always thought they worked well. I love a veggie lasagna, too. Now, though, with my very carnivorous family everything has to have tons of meat and cheese or they aren’t happy.
i use my mom’s recipie and it calls for a jar sauce and it is good….
I am a HUGE fan of Classico four cheese spaghetti sauce – it’s delicious – before I use it, I normally will saute a minced onion and garlic bulb, then add the sauce – delicioso!
I would use real meat instead.
I really don’t care for the imitation meat. It doesn’t taste bad it just makes me sick. I don’t mind zucchini cubed.
I love to ad portabello mushrooms in dishes like this where some may miss meat
I love to add eggplant to lasagna, or turkey
Yum, this sounds so good! I have made a variation of this before with eggplant instead of pasta and it was good too!
I would use strips of zucchini instead of pasta…thanks for the recipe.
I add extra tomatoes and a variety of cheeses.
I was a vegetarian for 8 years, and I used to love fake meat lasagna. Even though I now eat meat (and always have a stash of Morning Star Farms & Boca in the freezer), I would have no problems making this for me. Only downfall is, I don’t think my hubby would eat it 🙁 I can barely get him to eat tofu!
I use beef in mine, but this sounds really good, you are so right, it takes a long time to make, but in the end it’s worth it because everybody here love for me to make, been a while, I might try yours, thanks for sharing
You know what I love in mine? Eggplant! Yum, yum!
Your recipe sounds great– I’m a cheese freak! 🙂
I am vegan, so I would just use a tofu riccotta in place of the cheese. Anything easy is good for me!
Love this, I love having vegetarian alternatives. Pinning it!!!

I’d like to try this, I usually use ground turkey but I’m interested in this version.
I’ve eaten vegetable lasagna before and it’s really good, but I must say I do like meat, though when we make burgers we do substitute turkey for hamburger.
I prefer beef in mine. However, it’s nice to know a good veggie option for when I have guest over that don’t eat meat! In fact, I have a party I’m attending next weekend and I’m bringing a GF lasagna. I might just go ahead and use your recipe so the vegetarians there can eat it too!
Sounds good , Im vegan but ny family is not so I would use meat and follow the rest from you

sorry but i like meat in mine
I usually add ground beef & Italian sausage to my lasagna 🙂
Thanks for the recipie. My 12 year old daughter has decieded to be a vergetarian for the past year. Its been hard to incorporate dinner ideas so that we are all happy. This looks like a winner for us.
I like making vegetarian lasagna with thinly sliced zucchini and yellow squash.
i’m always looking for new recipes and having a child with food allergies is tough but we get to explore more food options too. I’d add more veggies to mine
I love that you made it vegetarian! Not enough veggie recipes lately!

Sounds good, I am picky about my tofu meat but would rather put veggies in it. My fav is Ricotta and a mix of mushrooms like portabella, shitake, oyster and button
Ground beef or venison. I usually make a homemade bolognese sauce.. if you like jarred.. ragu super chunky mushroom is good.
I would definitely make this, but I usually make lasagna with real meat.
