No, this isn't an oxymoron.

And -- The flour and durum wheat and semolina producers aren't going to like me for this one. The Gluten or Wheat intolerance folks will like this.

I substitute very thin sliced Potatoes, Zucchini and Egg Plant for the traditional noodles. Layer a mixed combination of them in each layer. And, I prefer a meat sauce.

It's a Keeper.

How to Make Veggie Lasagna with Meat


  • 1I use an 8" by 12" glass pyrex baking dish for this. Add a light coat of Olive Oil and rub and line dish.
  • 2Wash and slice thin the Potatoes, Zucchini and Egg Plant. Mix the Ricotta and Cottage Cheese well.
  • 3Start with thin layer of veggie combination, sprinkle on a very little Italian Seasoning. Then add thin layer of cheese mixture. Then thin layer a Spaghetti Sauce. Continue with additional layers of Veggies, Cheese and Sauce. Add a little Salt and Pepper if you must.
  • 4Every second or third layer add a few thin slices of Mozzarella, Provolone or Fontina Cheese.
  • 5Finish with a layer of sauce, and a few strips of the thin sliced cheese. Add two pats of Butter (2 Teaspoons) and drizzle with a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • 6Cover dish with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove foil and add a couple additional slices of cheese last 10 or 15 minutes.
  • 7Serve with Salad (Italian Dressing or Vinegar and Oil), warm sliced Italian Bread with a EVOO and Parmesan topping, And a fine glass of Chianti Wine. Ciao
  • 8NOTE: I like a meat sauce, if you choose meatless sauce you have a true Veggie Lasagna. You might try my "Spaghetti Sauce -- Italiano" with meat, (which see.)
