Cheesy Veggie Lasagna Recipe

This is my daughter-in-law's recipe. It's tasty and a little different from usual lasagna recipes. You won't even miss the meat! —Alyce Wyman, Pembina, North Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. + standing YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 18 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 cartons (15 ounces each) reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 4 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 cups garden-style spaghetti sauce
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 packages (16 ounces each) frozen cut green beans or 8 cups cut fresh green beans
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites, ricotta cheese, parsley, basil, oregano and pepper; set aside.
  • 2. In each of two 13x9-in. baking dishes coated with cooking spray, spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce. Drain noodles; place three noodles over spaghetti sauce in each dish.
  • 3. Layer each with a quarter of the ricotta mixture, 1 cup spaghetti sauce, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, three lasagna noodles and half of green beans. Top each with remaining ricotta mixture and 1 cup spaghetti sauce. Layer with remaining lasagna noodles, spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each.
  • 4. Cover and freeze one casserole for up to 3 months. Bake remaining lasagna, uncovered, at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly and edges are lightly browned. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  • 5. To use frozen lasagna: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 375° for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 2 lasagnas (9 servings each).

"This was a good vegetable lasagna recipe. The only change I made was to pre-cook the green beans and I am very glad I did."

"I always use California mix (i.e. broccoli, cauliflower, & carrots) in this type of recipe. Zucchini is good too either with this or just plain. But skip the green beans!!!"

"I agree that I like it without the green beans and also added sauteed portabella mushrooms for taste and texture."

"This was a good recipe, not great, but good. Personally, the green beans didn't pair verry well as far as texture goes. MIght try a different veggie next time, but the garden spaghetti sauce was a nice touch!"

"I thought this recipe was good, but I didn't care for it too much with the green beans. I think next time I might put Broccoli in instead of the beans. Otherwise, everything else with the recipe was great."
