Vegetable Lasagna

vegetable lasagna

Vegetable lasagna in our house is a favorite. I love making it in my Rubbermaid Brilliance Glass food storage containers since they are oven-safe & freezer safe (in case I have leftovers). The vegetable lasagna recipe comes together in just under an hour. One quick tip; make double the recipe and freeze one for a rainy day, trust me on this. Also if you do have some stuffing leftover you can repurpose it and make it into stuffed shells or manicotti. Rubbermaid has made storing & reheating the veggie lasagna a breeze! I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do. 

A little bit about why I rave about these Rubbermaid Brilliance™ Glass food storage containers; superior lids make reheating and storing easy,100% leak proof, these food storage containers are built with a 100% airtight, leak-proof seal and secure latches. They are oven, dishwasher, microwave, AND freezer safe! The Smart Lid System allows you to share your lids across Brilliance containers, which I find so helpful because let’s be real I misplace container lids ALL the time. Clear lids and bases make it easy to see what’s inside and are stain- and odor- resistant, this is a HUGE plus for all our desi cooking with turmeric. The splatter-free lid design, built-in vents under the latches is also so amazing, you can now microwave things without having to remove the lid. You can purchase the  Rubbermaid Brilliance™ Glass food storage containers here.

Hope you like the recipe as much as we did!! Don’t forget to tag me @zheelicious, I can’t wait to see your creation.

  •  You can make these as roll ups as well.
  • If you have leftover ricotta filling you can make stuffed shells, manicotti, or toss in with cooked pasta. 
  • I buy bomba sauce from Trader Joe’s, if you can’t find it you can skip it. 
  • You can make this ahead of time and freeze it then pop it in the oven before serving. It’s great for hosting dinner parties.
