Fresh Vegetable Lasagna

    Great way to incorporate more veggies! Next time, I'll use jar sauce or make the sauce ahead of time. Sauce needs more tang. I used the whole 15 oz ricotta cup, and it still was hard to cover the whole lasagna when divided into thirds. Can add 2 lb browned ground beef/turkey to sauce, and I added some diced tomatoes.

    This was outstanding! My meat loving family loved it and even my brother couldn't believe there was no meat in there (he was falsely tasting the mushrooms as so). I used two big jars of store-bought marinara to save time and so the lasagna itself turned out just a *tad* bit salty, but that has nothing to do with the recipe. I used non-cooked whole wheat lasagna noodles and they worked out great to absorb all that moisture from the sauce. I will definitely be making this again!

    Great way to use my summer vegetable harvest! I split it into 2 9" pans since one dish is plenty for our family. Froze the other! Will definitely make this again.

    I made this recipe for "Meatless Monday's" and had my vegetarian cousins over for dinner. The only change I made was adding roasted butternut squash to the mix. I got rave reviews from my cousins, they said it was the best vegetarian lasagna they have ever tasted :)

    This is my fave veggie lasagna recipe. The veggie prep can be a bit tedious, so I either make this whole dish on a weekend when I have plenty of time, or prep the veggies on the weekend and then put the rest of the dish together on a weekday after work. Good for a regular family dinner, dinner party, or putting together and then dropping off uncooked for friends who need a helping hand (new baby at home, death in family, etc).

    I served this for a luncheon and everyone raved about how flavorful and fresh it tasted. My meat and potatoes husband reluctantly agreed to eat it for dinner and repeatedly said how great it was. One reviewer said hers was bland. I would say, be sure your Italian seasoning is not out of date and also be sure to simmer the sauce for a full hour, or longer to marry the flavors. If you follow the instructions, you'll love it!! To save time, I made the marinara sauce a couple of days ahead and refrigerated it. Also, I used regular lasagna noodles, not the no-cook kind, but I didn't cook them before putting them in my pan. They were well cooked and flavorful at the end of the cooking time.

    This was so good my kids even ate it!!! I Added steamed spinach to the ricotta cheese mixture and reduced the salt, also I was feeling lazy and used a jarred sauce. I was absolutely delicious and I look forward to making it again soon.

    I'm not a non-cook (meaning: beginner). This recipe was a little time consuming to put together. But well worth the time. It turned out great. It has a great flavor. I divided the ingredients in half to prepare a smaller amount. I substituted a medium egg instead of a large one. I ran out of marinara sauce. I replaced it with crushed tomatoes. This meal is absolutely delicious! This tastes just like the veggie lasagna from Trader Joe's. The recipe is doable...even for a beginner.

    This is one of my favorite recipes ever! It is VERY time consuming though, so making the Marinara sauce a few days ahead is the way to go (and it gets a richer flavor too). I shorten the time of the veggies in the oven to 10 minutes max., otherwise they were too soggy. And I can never make the 4 layers of pasta that it calls for... too high for the baking dish walls, so I pack just 3 layers with more yumminess :)
