How do I make a vegetarian lasagna?

Making a vegetarian lasagna is a great option for those who prefer a meat-free dish. Here's a basic recipe for a delicious 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


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