Fast and Easy Vegetarian Lasagna

Veggie Lasagna ~gardenmatter.com

Sometimes you just need something quick and easy to make for dinner. I found this recipe for a quick vegetarian lasagna many years ago from a magazine and have made it so many times I don’t even need to refer to the recipe. It helps that it is so simple and uses items you are likely to have on hand.

I also love to bring this to a party or holiday dinner. Since it is vegetarian it makes a great side dish for a large crowd or the main course for the non-meat eaters in the group. I make it in a 9×13 in baking dish so it serves quite a few people, approx. 20 nice-size servings.

Of course you can modify it in several ways. For example, this recipe uses two jars of vodka sauce but any pasta sauce would work well. Also, once I dressed it up by roasting thin slices of eggplant and zucchini and add them to the layers. Varying the cheese mix and the type of pesto sauce is yet another variation you my want to try.

Make it your own or just follow my recipe. It’s really tasty, fast and easy.
