1. BUTTERNUT SQUASH & KALE LASAGNA
A fall-twist on a classic dish, this Vegan Butternut Squash Lasagna with béchamel sauce is the perfect dish for omnivores and vegans alike.
2. MUSHROOM LASAGNA
A delicious, comforting lasagna that is both vegan and gluten-free!
3. BUTTERNUT SQUSH, ZUCCHINI, AND SPINACH LASAGNA
If cheese is your first love and noodle-less pasta is your nemesis, this lasagna may be your match. This vegetarian dish gets clever with its layers, alternating between pasta sheets and strips of zucchini. It also packs in extra greens with a spinach filling and extra fiber with butternut squash purée as a stand-in sauce. Perfect for a rainy day, fall dinner party, or weekday pick-me-up.
4. ROASTED TOMATO PALEO VEGETARIAN LASAGNA
Roasted tomatoes just put bubbling cheese to shame. We love the robust color and flavor you get from this cheese-free topping, and we love that all of the nutritious ingredients mean seconds are strongly encouraged. For the best texture, stick to almond flour lasagna sheets. For extra protein and a not-so vegetarian spin, add a layer of ground chicken or turkey.
5. STUFFED SPAGHETTI SQUASH LASAGNA BOWLS
Don’t let the cook time fool you: This recipe is actually incredibly easy and requires very little action in the kitchen. The hardest work is waiting for the spaghetti squash to soften, so make sure you start cooking at least an hour before hanger strikes. Once cooked, mix the spaghetti-like squash strands with marinara sauce, ricotta, and greens; stuff the mixture back into the squash boats; and broil. No layering, no fuss, no complaints.
6. MASON JAR ZUCCHINI LASAGNA
We don’t know who started the mason jar trend, but we do know that we’re happy about it. These single-serving lasagnas mean you don’t have to worry about overeating—though you’ll likely still be tempted to—and that you can bring them (and eat them) just about anywhere. Zucchini noodles ensure there’s plenty of room for sauce and an extra helping of cheese.
7. VEGAN TOFU RICOTTA LASAGNA
Nutritional yeast, miso, and tofu? Yep, you read that right. Though this lasagna is prepared with some surprising ingredients, it’s well worth the adventure. Crumbling the tofu gives it the perfect, ricotta-like texture, and the nutritional yeast provides just a hint of cheese-like flavor. Trust us: You won’t miss the meat—vegan or not.
8. SWEET POTATO LASAGNA
For a sturdier noodle stand-in, try sweet potato. The layered rounds are the perfect base for mounds of ricotta (this recipe also uses a tofu variety), and the homemade pesto is an ideal top-off for an otherwise sauceless dish. We love mixing the ricotta with chopped spinach and a touch of truffle oil to make it extra delicious—and nutritious.
9. HEALTHIER ONE POT SKILLET LASAGNA
Skip the layering and the baking in this single-skillet, family-friendly meal. Packed with veggies and protein from lean turkey or chicken, this simple dish is sure to be a cold weather, weekday staple. Because the noodles are broken, it’s also a great dish for gluten-free substitutes, which can be a bit flimsy.
10. CHICKEN, MUSHROOM, AND SPINACH LASAGNA
Tomato sauce is great, but sometimes we want something a little less tart and a lot more creamy. This recipe skips the classic pasta sauce and uses a cheese- and milk-based cream sauce to tie together shredded chicken and bitter greens. We love the kick from red pepper flakes and subtle spice from nutmeg. Don’t have shredded chicken? Use chicken sausage or skip the meat altogether and double up on mushrooms.
11. LASAGNA STUFFED EGGPLANT
Eggplant Parmesan meets lasagna in this simple yet super-tasty recipe. Start by halving two eggplants; scoop out the centers; stuff with marinara sauce, Italian sausage, and ricotta; top with extra cheese; bake; and enjoy. For a vegetarian version, omit the sausage and add mushrooms and artichoke hearts.
