Can I make lasagna without meat?

Yes, absolutely! Lasagna can be delicious even without meat. There are various vegetarian and vegan lasagna recipes that use alternative ingredients to replace the meat. Here's a simple recipe for vegetarian lasagna:


  • 9 lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups (480g) ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups (200g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup (100g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups (300g) sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup (100g) chopped spinach
  • 1 cup (150g) diced bell peppers
  • 1 cup (200g) diced zucchini
  • 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for sautéing


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the minced garlic until fragrant.
  4. Add the sliced mushrooms, chopped spinach, diced bell peppers, and diced zucchini to the skillet. Cook until the vegetables are tender.
  5. In a bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and egg. Mix well.
  6. In another bowl, mix together the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to create the tomato sauce.
  7. To assemble the lasagna, spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  8. Place three lasagna noodles on top of the sauce. Spread about one-third of the ricotta mixture over the noodles, followed by a layer of sautéed vegetables.
  9. Repeat the layers of noodles, ricotta mixture, and vegetables two more times.
  10. For the final layer, place three lasagna noodles on top, cover them with the remaining tomato sauce, and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  11. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  12. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden.
  13. Let the lasagna cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
