Vegetable Lasagna

We had some friends over for dinner so we decided to work on perfecting our pasta skills. This time we made a homemade vegetable lasagna. We used our trusty Kitchenaid attachment to get the perfect noodles. I call Josh the “Dough Boy” because he is always in charge of doing the pasta. He is getting good! I roasted the veggies, made the sauce, and filling. Then we layered it all together and baked it until bubbly.

When we made our ravioli we had several comments from people saying they have never made pasta or they think it would be too hard….well it’s not! I recommend you try it today! It is so fun to make and the taste will knock your socks off! Plus it is so cheap to do! Flour, eggs, a little bit of salt…I am sure you have everything at home right now!! So give homemade pasta a try! Our lasagna was outstanding!

We had to cut the dough into lasagna size noodles.

Our homemade noodles were the base of the lasagna.


Layering the roasted veggies and sauce!

Time for some cheese, please!

Ready to be baked.


Layers of goodness!

This recipe is simple! We used the same pasta dough and basically the same sauce as our ravioli.
I didn’t do mushrooms in the sauce this time because they were in the lasagna, but you can add them if you like.
I roasted eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, and peppers. We also sauteed some mushrooms.
For the cheese filling I used 2 cups of ricotta, some freshly grated parmesan, 2 eggs, and salt and pepper.
We sprayed the bottom of a 9 by 13 pan and spread a little bit of sauce on the bottom. Next, we added a layer of noodles. We put sauce, veggies, and cheese on top. We did a couple more layers of this and topped it off with some shredded mozzarella. We baked the lasagna for about 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

This lasagna is great for leftovers. You can freeze smaller portions to take to lunch or to pull out for a quick dinner!!

  1. You guys really are amazing. I wish my hubby could cook with me in the kitch. But really, this is one of the best looking lasagnas I have ever seen!!!!

  2. Do you know I got a pasta machine and haven’t used it yet! That lasagna looks delicious! I’m sure your friends were impressed!

  3. That looks yummy! I really must make my own pasta.

    Last weekend you inspired me to whip up some ravioli. I cheated and used wonton wrappers (gasp!). Worked all night cutting out little fluted circles so we could cook them the next day for dinner. Our friends arrived at seven the next day, and the gas went poof! I wanted to cry.

    Anyway, I managed a quick ravioli a la lasagne, and it saved dinner. What a nightmare!

  4. I really can’t believe you make something so yummy everyday. And everything looks like it takes time. Your homemade veggie lasagna looks amazing.

  5. Oh Maria! My mouth is watering! I love eggplant but rarely find ways to use it that I like {it always tastes good when others cook it…} This looks so great though. It just looks comforting and delicious!

  6. lasagna is one of my ultimate comfort foods. this is a superior version–nicely done! perhaps one day i’ll make my own pasta. perhaps. 🙂
