Making a casserole that can be put in the oven when you get home from work is a great way to have meal prep done. This vegetable meat lasagna can be frozen or made the night before and stored in the refrigerator. I love make-ahead meals.

When I make lasagna, I at least double the recipe, but usually quadruple it. I can put it in storage containers that can go straight from the freezer to the oven and bake. When I have a night that I’m too busy or don’t feel like cooking, I can grab one out and get it cooking with almost no effort. My friend always says my freezer is magic because it has so many great surprises.

I love making things like spaghetti sauce that can be enhanced with a variety of vegetables for more nutrition. Check out more about hiding vegetables for picky eaters

You can buy store-bought spaghetti sauce for this lasagna or for some outstanding flavor, you can make your own like I do in this post. Check out my oven roasted tomato sauce too.

Kohlrabi pasta

Why did I choose kohlrabi you might ask? I LOVE it. It’s my very favorite vegetable and it tastes great in this dish. You can substitute broccoli or cauliflower for the kohlrabi or even grate up other vegetables like carrots and squash for another delicious variety. I have found everything tastes great in lasagna! I love it with mushrooms as well.

You can even substitute zucchini for the noodles in this vegetable meat lasagna. Just slice the zucchini long ways in thin strips and use it raw like you would the cooked noodles. You can use carrot slices, yellow squash, butternut squash, or eggplant as well. (I would par-cook the butternut or eggplant in some rapidly boiling water for about 10 minutes first.)

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg lasagna noodles
  • 1 bunch baby spinach
  • 2 kohlrabi bulbs, peeled and cubed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 qt spaghetti sauce
  • 2 c ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 c grated mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Cook noodles according to package directions in salted water, making sure not to get them too soft. 
    Place ½ c sauce in the bottom of 9 x 13 pan. 
    Add a layer of cooked noodles to cover entire pan. 
    Add about half the spinach and kohlrabi. 
    Add salt and pepper to vegetables if desired. 
    Add about half the spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle with ½ of all three cheeses
    Add another layer of noodles, the remaining spinach and kohlrabi, the remaining sauce and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. 
    Bake at 350 until top is lightly browned and lasagna is bubbly. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing into pieces.

Notes

Other vegetables can be substituted if desired. Broccoli or cauliflower would have the same cooking time. If you use squash or carrots, I suggest grating them so they will cook faster.

  1. My husband makes a fantastic lasagna but puts his focus on the meat and cheeses. I need to get him going with adding vegetables. Your lasagna looks so good!
