Vegetable Lasagna

This vegetable lasagna is so simple to throw together you guys! You don’t even have to precook the noodles! What?! For whatever reason I have put off making a lasagna recipe because it just seemed like too much work. Boy was I wrong! You guys will love this and it’s for sure getting a spot in the next cookbook!

I choose to make this vegetable lasagna with Banza chickpea pasta because it’s packed with extra protein the traditional pasta doesn’t have. Bonus: it’s also gluten free! You can find Banza pasta at most grocery stores. But, you can substitute any lasagna noodles in you like. If you’re a macro nutrition counter, the macros will be different. Keep that in mind.

You will need to do some sautéing of vegetables and use an extra mixing bowl for this recipe, but I swear it’s easy. You’ll have a vegetable and sauce layer, a noodle layer, and a cheese layer. Repeat layers a few times and throw it in the oven!

The cheesy layer I like to spread on top of the noodles as best I can so it’s even.

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese

  • 1 tablespoon dried or fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ½ cups marinara sauce (I used 1.5 jars of Trader Joe’s organic. Macros per serving: 1p/8c/2f so anything similar works great)
