Easy Cheesy Meatless Lasagna Recipe using No-Boil Noodles (1)

Hello, Lasagna-loving friends! Today I'm sharing with you my short-cut easy cheesy meatless lasagna. Typically when it comes to lasagna, I'm all about slow-cooked homemade meat sauces, bechamels, and lots of fresh mozzarellas. But, you might not guess that from the looks of this recipe. 🙂

Life is all about moderation, right? And sometimes, you just need a quick and dirty lasagna recipe in your arsenal for when you don't want to reach for the Stouffers but are craving lasagna.

This Cheesy Meatless Lasagna uses one of my favorite lasagna short-cuts-- no-boil noodles! I'll link to my favorite brand in the recipe, and I love that they are cut into super thin sheets and are reminiscent of homemade pasta.

Confession: Even when I do make my alllllll-day lasagna I still use these no-boil noodles. I love them!

Can I add meat to this cheesy meatless lasagna?

Yes, of course! Just layer it in between the cheese and sauce, and you'll be good to go.

What else can I add to this cheesy meatless lasagna?

Good Question! Here are some ideas:

  • Sauteed Mushrooms cooked in butter with a little garlic
  • Caramelized Onions
  • Thinly sliced zucchini or yellow squash-- just make sure to sprinkle a little salt over each layer.
  • Ground beef, turkey, Italian sausage, or chicken.
  • Fresh Mozzarella Slices or Provolone Cheese instead of grated mozzarella

Tips for Cooking your Cheesy Meatless Lasagna:

  • If you like your ricotta cheese layer to be a little firmer, add an egg to the cheese mixture when mixing.
  • You can freeze this recipe before baking, so you always have a lasagna ready to go in your freezer if you need it! Just take out of the freezer and allow to thaw for 24 hours in the fridge before baking.
  • Use your favorite pasta sauces! You can even substitute a jar of alfredo sauce for one of the jars of tomato sauce if you'd like. Just skip the step of mixing the two sauces and alternately layer them in the pan. Adding alfredo sauce makes for a super creamy, extra-cheesy lasagna.

Tools I used for this Cheesy Meatless Lasagna:

  • Anolon Vesta Rectangular Baking Dish: This line of stoneware from Anolon is one of my favorite things in my kitchen. They come in gorgeous colors, bake evenly, aren't ridiculously heavy like enameled cast iron and last. Love mine-- especially for lasagna!
  • Spring Chef Box Grater: Grating cheese is usually a task I pass off to my kids because I hate it, but this grater makes it as enjoyable as it can be. 🙂 I love the four sides and that they include a slicing blade.
  • Get It Right Silicone Spatulas: I have waaaaay toomany of these spatulas floating around in my kitchen but I just love them! They are heat-resistance and can be used for both baking and cooking so they are basically my go-to kitchen tool. I love that they come in lots of vibrant colors and are easy to clean. Most of the spatulas I have are at least 4 years old and still look new!
