Quick & Easy Meatless Lasagna

I LOVE lasagna! All of that cheesy, saucy goodness?? What’s not to love? Unfortunately, I hardly ever make it for dinner at home because it’s a fairly labor intensive dish! You have to brown the meat, boil the noodles, assemble it all, and then bake it. I usually just don’t have the time (or the patience) for it.

Lately I’ve been trying to add a few more “meatless meals” to my dinner repertoire, so when I came across this recipe for a super quick and easy vegetarian lasagna, I was eager to give it a try. The process couldn’t have been simpler, and NO pre-boiling the noodles! (Hallelujah!) Not only is it easy to make, but it’s totally delicious as well! This recipe is absolutely going into my regular dinner rotation. Give it a try, and you can thank me later! 🙂

Easy Vegetarian Lasagna

  • 1 lb. frozen spinach, thawed
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Italian herb seasoning (oregano, thyme, basil, rosemary, etc.)
  • 1 package “no-boil” or “oven-ready” lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2-3 tomatoes, sliced thickly
  • 2 cups mozzarella

Preheat your oven to 350º, and oil your baking pan. Start by seasoning the thawed spinach with salt and pepper to taste. To the cottage cheese, add a tablespoon or so of Italian herb seasoning, and more salt and pepper to taste.

Now it’s time to build your lasagna! Place a layer of lasagna noodles in the bottom of your oiled baking pan.

Distribute about half of the seasoned spinach on top of the noodles.

Spread about half of the seasoned cottage cheese on top of the spinach and noodles.

Add another layer of noodles, spinach, and cottage cheese to the dish.

Add one final layer of noodles on top, then add a layer of fresh tomato slices on top of the noodles.

Pour the two cups of marinara sauce evenly over the top of the lasagna, then sprinkle the mozzarella evenly on top of the sauce.

Cover the lasagna with tin foil, and bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Carefully remove the foil, and let it bake uncovered for an additional 10 minutes or so to let the cheese brown a bit.

Let it cool for a few minutes, then dig in!

Wrap and freeze any extra servings individually to thaw and warm for lunch in a hurry. I love leftovers almost as much as I love lasagna. 🙂
