Quick and Easy Vegetarian Lasagna Recipe Recipe

Here's a quick, simple and easy recipe for vegetarian lasagna. I substituted lavash pizza bread for the regular lasagna pasta sheets. Lavash bread can be easily cut, so it's fun to make different shaped lasagna, but perhaps most important, it doesn't need to be precooked! The texture is slightly more firm on the top layer, but as ooey-gooey as one would expect on the inside. It's familiar but at the same time refreshing and new.

I made this dish with my friends from California Lavash. They came to my houseand we cooked up a storm, took pictures, and generally had a blast. Love the product, ladies!

Onion Masala Manicotti Pasta Recipe (+Giveaway) Recipe

I came up with this new dish after I received masala marinara pasta sauce from our friend Dave of DavesGourmet.com. This special sauce was the winner of the Sofi Award for outstanding pasta sauce in 2010. The sauce is very creative and definitely has a South Asian flair with hints of ginger, coconut and kaffir lime leaves. It's a must try.

Since the sauce itself is a fusion of cultures, I thought it would be fun to continue the theme and make an Italian pasta dish with Indian flavors. I made Indian-style pearl onions cooked in onion masala sauce, called dopiaza. I used that mixture to flavor manicotti stuffed with ricotta cheese and a generous helping of French triple cream cheese. If that sounds a bit decadent to you, well, it is!

Butternut Squash Lasagna Recipe Recipe

Butternut Squash Lasagna Recipe

10.25.10 by Jackie

Lasagna is one of the ultimate comfort foods our family enjoys. It's butternut squash season, so I've been cooking with it a lot lately, and I thought it would be fun to use it in a lasagna dish.

To start, I roasted butternut squash pieces in the oven with herbs and honey, then blended it into a smooth purée. I then stacked layers of pasta sheets in between creamy, cheesy white sauce and butternut squash purée. It’s a perfect combination of sweet and savory, and it really enhances the natural sweetness of the ricotta.

The lasagna dish can be prepared in advance (the day before) and kept it in the refrigerator overnight. It might not be the healthiest but it will definitely satisfy your appetite on cold days.

Vegetarian Palak Paneer Lasagna Recipe

Vegetarian Palak Paneer Lasagna

05.25.10 by Jackie

Palak paneer lasagna is the result of my desire to not waste food. We had some leftover palak paneer from our dinner party, and I thought it would be fun to experiment. I made an Indian-spiced béchamel sauce and combined it with the spinach. The mixture was then sandwiched between layers of pasta sheets. I decided not to add additional cheese since there was already cubes of paneer in the dish. Instead, I crushed herb crackers on top to create a crust.

I’ve found that the most unusual dishes are created when your desire to create something new is constrained by the realities of what you have in your pantry or fridge. This dish is a great example. The marriage of Indian ingredients with the pasta really worked well.

Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna Recipe

Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna

Lasagna are always a hit at home, especially during the winter. The layer of spinach and béchamel sauce make the dish very creamy and filling. 

It's suitable for both meat eaters and vegetarians. My little sister-in-law who's deathly allergic to nuts and eggs can also share this dish with all of us.

It's a great dish to make in advance as you can prepare it the day before and keep it in the refrigerator overnight.
