Vegetarian Lasagna Recipe

Have you recently become a vegetarian? Have you found that you are limited to eating only a few recipes compared to what you used to when you did eat meat? Don't be dismayed because there are a few vegetarian dishes that you can enjoy and they can even be as delicious as Italian pasta. Try out this vegetarian lasagna recipe and satisfy your palate today.

Step 1

First thing you need to do is prepare all the ingredients for this vegetarian lasagna recipe. It's not that difficult; all you need is an eggplant, some frozen spinach, lasagna noodles, a pack of low-fat cheese, a jar of meatless sauce, a pack of mozzarella, some salt and pepper, tomatoes, and parsley flakes. Keep in mind that the cheese you have to use must be healthy. You can find all of these ingredients in a supermarket.

Step 2

Let's start with the frozen spinach and start defrosting it. Spinach needs to be a little dry so make sure that you get rid of all the water that you can. You can get a little help by using a dry and clean cloth or use some other utensils such as a colander.

Step 3

The eggplant needs to be prepared and cut in to thin pieces. Make sure that you make them into slices that will not slow down the cooking process. Lay these slices on a cloth and add a little salt. Place another cloth on top of the first salted layer and then repeat what you did with the remaining slices.

Step 4

Paying attention to cooking this vegetarian lasagna recipe is important. You will need to heat a cookie sheet and on top of that, place a heavy pan to evenly distribute the heat. This is what you will use to cook the lasagna noodles until they are soft enough. To make things easier, you can start mixing the cheese, spinach, pepper and salt in a bowl while the noodles are cooking.

Step 5

Now here's the tricky part in the healthy vegetarian lasagna recipe process. Add sauce into a casserole pan and spread it out evenly. Then add a layer of lasagna noodles, a layer of eggplant, sauce, a layer of cottage cheese, spinach mix, and then another layer of lasagna noodles. Repeat this process until you reach the top of the casserole pan or however thick you want your dish to be.

Step 6

Now for the best part because it's the easiest. To finalize your pasta, add mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and some tomato slices. Then add parsley flakes for more flavor and color.

After you have prepared all of this, bake the dish at a temperature of 350 degrees and leave it on for about an hour. Once you notice that the eggplant becomes soft and brownish, you can remove it and you can start eating once it's a little cooled. This is an easy and tasty vegetarian lasagna recipe you can cook to satisfy your craving for good and healthy food.
