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


  1. I use an 8" by 12" glass pyrex baking dish for this. Add a light coat of Olive Oil and rub and line dish.
  2. Wash and slice thin the Potatoes, Zucchini and Egg Plant. Mix the Ricotta and Cottage Cheese well.
  3. Start 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.
  4. Every second or third layer add a few thin slices of Mozzarella, Provolone or Fontina Cheese.
  5. Finish 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.
  6. Cover 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.
  7. Serve 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
  8. NOTE: 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.)
