Very Veggie Lasagne

Very Veggie Lasagne

Is it just me or does anyone else also have those days where you can literally feel your body begging for vegetables? Those days when you realize that the closest thing to vegetables you’ve had all week was the lettuce on your Subway sub. Well, I created this recipe specifically for those days. Although, our Very Veggie Lasagne is yummy enough to feed to your family and friends even if they’re not having one of those veggies-craving days the way you are.

Mushrooms, peppers, spinach and onion form the “meat” of the lasagne, and thinly sliced zucchini is the “pasta”. Those get layered with a rich all-natural marinara (we used the Mezzetta brand) and a creamy cauliflower “béchamel”. Even typing it out makes me drool. This was an insanely delicious lasagne and it really makes you question if meat is truly necessary to make a kick-ass lasagne.

It might not be the prettiest dish we’ve ever made, but it’s definitely one of the most delicious. It was quick to prepare and quick to assemble. I may have outdone myself with this one, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

We served our rich, bubbling lasagne with a side of our Super Green Salad and its accompanying Parsley Lime Dressing. Yep. It was a serious veggie day. I wasn’t kidding when I said my body begged me for the green stuff. It clapped in joy like a seal when I fed it this meal. Try it for yourself and you’ll see what I mean.
