Easy, Delicious Meat and Vegetarian Lasagna Recipes

Susan has been sharing recipes online since 2006. She specializes in simple, delicious, family-friendly recipes that everyone loves.

Delicious lasagna with meat sauce. The recipe is simple, but the results are amazing!

In the mood for some delicious homemade lasagna? We have an easy lasagna with meat sauce and an awesome vegetable lasagna for you to try. Both are indescribably delicious, despite being easy recipes to prepare. We've even found a shortcut for preparing lasagna noodles that won't heat up your kitchen with big, boiling pots of water.

Lasagna is a dish that can be prepared in advance then put in the oven later. Or, go ahead and bake it then save or freeze the leftovers to reheat another time. Around my house, we believe lasagna tastes even better the second time around, so cooking what amounts to two meals (or more) at the same time is a smart move and a great time saver. In fact, planning leftovers by making two pans at the same time and heating the oven just once is smart cooking!

I love simple recipes and these definitely qualify. You may need to invest a little bit of time upfront, but it's time well-spent when you consider the delicious results. Don't let the long recipes discourage you. Putting together a pan of lasagna is fun and very fulfilling when your family or guests start oohing and aahing the delicious results.

Hungry yet? Let's get on with it. We'll start with the vegetable lasagna recipe (since my husband has decided that's his favorite) then move on to the meat sauce plus more creative lasagna ideas. Read on!

Delicious Vegetable Lasagna

This is my version of the vegetarian lasagnain the video below. Instead of homemade tomato sauce, I use a can of my favorite spaghetti sauce. I've also never made lasagna with chili peppers, but you can add those if you like.

A note about the spinach: My husband says he can't taste the spinach in this and, frankly, I can barely taste it either, though it adds to the overall wonderful flavor. This could be a really good way to sneak some iron and good nutrition into someone who wouldn't eat it otherwise.

Ingredients

  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • olive oil
  • 1 can or jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 1 large eggplant
  • several handfuls (about half a bag) fresh baby spinach
  • 3 cups shredded cheese, mozzarella, and cheddar mix
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Prepare noodles. Here is a shortcut to the way you might be used to: Let noodles soak in a 9x13 pan of hot water as you gather the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Pour a teaspoon or two of olive oil into a 9x13 baking pan. I use a glass cake pan. If you have one, use a nice, deep lasagne pan. Use your fingers or a paper towel to grease the bottom and sides of the pan (fingers work best).
  4. Spread a small amount of spaghetti sauce (I use it right out of the can) over the bottom of the pan.
  5. Starting with three noodles, begin layering. Add eggplant slices, salt and pepper, spaghetti sauce, and cheese.
  6. Add the second layer: noodles, sauce, plenty of spinach, salt and pepper, and cheese.
  7. Third layer: noodles, the rest of the eggplant, more spinach, salt and pepper, and cheese.
  8. Final layer: noodles, the rest of the sauce, and the rest of the cheese.
  9. Cover pan loosely with aluminum foil. To keep the foil from sticking to the cheese, spread a teaspoon or so of olive oil on the bottom of the foil.
  10. Bake for 30–35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10–15 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15–20 minutes.

How to Make Vegetable Lasagna

Including homemade tomato sauce! Now, if you want to try it with store-bought tomato sauce that's perfectly fine, or use the sauce recipe from Chef Ali Hassan from the video.

Below, you can watch Hassan construct his lasagne. He starts in the usual way, with a bit of olive oil on the bottom of the pan and a bit of sauce. Then he lays down lasagna noodles, sauce, eggplant, cheese (a mixture of grated mozzarella and strong cheddar), and chiles. The next layer uses noodles, sauce, raw spinach leaves, cheese, and the ubiquitous chiles. For the third layer, Hassan uses half eggplant slices, half spinach then tops it all off with noodles, sauce, and cheese. It's an excellent recipe if, like me, you love eggplant and spinach.

Delicious Lasagna With Meat Sauce

This is the way I learned to make meat lasagna years ago. I use ricotta cheese, but many people substitute cottage cheese. It's up to you.

Ingredients

  • 9–12 lasagna noodles, depending upon the size of your pan
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage, sweet or spicy
  • 1 can or jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce, or make your own
  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2–3 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • olive oil
  • 2–3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Use the shortcut method to soften the noodles.
  3. In a dutch oven, brown the beef and sausage. Drain excess fat. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Combine ricotta and Parmesan cheese, along with eggs and parsley. Stir well.
  5. Pour a teaspoon or two of olive oil into a 9x13 baking pan. Use your fingers or a paper towel to coat the bottom and sides of the pan.
  6. Spread about 1/2 cup of the meat sauce over the bottom of the pan.
  7. To begin layering, lay three or four noodles on top of the sauce. Don't worry if there's a little space between. Spread half of the cheese mixture. Top with about 1/3 of the sauce and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat: noodles, cheese, sauce, mozzarella. Then one more time using the rest of the ingredients.
  8. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. To keep the foil from sticking to the cheese, spread olive oil on the foil.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until hot and bubbly. Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
  10. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes.

What's your favorite lasagna recipe?

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on September 26, 2016:

I love the idea of using the eggplant in place of the noodles! I'd love to know how your idea turns out. I'm sure it will be fabulous! Thanks so much for commenting!

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on September 26, 2016:

My husband is on a low carb diet so I'd probably make a combination of these two lasagnas. I could substitute the eggplant for the noodles and add meat, tomato sauce and cheese. I've added it to my menu for next week. Your photos make my mouth water! I also think it's a great idea to make ahead and freeze leftovers. Thank you!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on August 15, 2016:

Candy, just last night when we were enjoying my latest batch of lasagna I commented to my husband on how good the noodles were, cooked just right with the perfect amount of chewiness and flavor. I really do believe the shortcut method makes for a better lasagna. I'd love to know how yours turn out when you try this easy method.

Candy on August 14, 2016:

I like the shortcut for softening the noodles. I'm going to try that next time I make lasagna.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on June 16, 2016:

Sounds good! Lasagna is a great way to celebrate just about any occasion. Hope you enjoy a wonderful dinner with your family!

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on June 16, 2016:

O yest, I have commented on this but just came back to say I am making one of these tonight for my family who has just returned from a trip to the northeast.

Thank you for taking the work out of this for me...you had me at 'easy'.

Hoping all is good with....

Angels are on the way to you today ps

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on January 31, 2016:

I hope the method works as well for you as it does for me, MayberryHomemaker. Seriously, it's a life-changer when it comes to making lasagna. I'll never boil again! :) Thanks so much for commenting!

Thelma Raker Coffone from Blue Ridge Mountains, USA on January 30, 2016:

Great tip on preparing lasagne noodles without cooking. Never heard that before. Gonna give it a try!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on December 24, 2015:

Zucchini with the spinach sounds good, Favored. We love it around here, too. Hope you made some extra for you and your husband! Thanks for stopping by. Always good to see you!

Fay Favored from USA on December 23, 2015:

I just made Lasagna yesterday for a friend who was going to have tests in the hospital. Her favorite is spinach, but I never thought of using eggplant. Lorelei suggested zucchini and I think my husband would like that one.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 17, 2015:

Appreciate the angels - and your visit! Breakfast is a good time to start thinking about tonight's lasagna. You'll be good and hungry when the time comes. Enjoy!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 17, 2015:

It really is extra-easy, Rebecca. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 17, 2015:

Isn't that a great trick, Barb? I fix lasagna much more often since I learned it. Enjoy your next batch!

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on October 17, 2015:

Yes please...I have not had breakfast yet but this sounds like a great breakfast to me :D Lasagna made using your recipe will no doubt be a lovely experience.

Looking forward to giving a try!!

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on October 17, 2015:

Both of these look so good. I am going to start with the meatless lasagna because it just sounds so easy. Thanks!

Barbara Radisavljevic from Templeton, CA on October 17, 2015:

You make me hungry for lasagna again. I love that trick for cooking the noodles without boiling and draining them.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on August 01, 2015:

Oh, I know, Dolores. The messed up noodles happened to me all the time, too, when I used the boiling water method. The pasta in the pan with hot water approach is so much simpler, quicker, and it's cooler, too. Glad you learned a helpful tip! Thank you so much for commenting - much appreciated!

Dolores Monet from East Coast, United States on August 01, 2015:

The layering of the pasta in a pan instead of boiling sounds great. I need to try this. When I boil lasagna noodles, so many wind up messed up.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on July 22, 2015:

Thank you for the stars, Rachel. (Odd about the 4.9, but I'll take what I can get!) I think your granddaughter would like the veggie lasagna and, best of all, so would just about anyone. I agree with you about going meatless occasionally. This is a nice recipe to add a little variety to the menu. Thanks again for stopping by. Many blessings in return!

Rachel L Alba from Every Day Cooking and Baking on July 22, 2015:

Hi Susan, I have been making lasagna from decades, ever since my mother taught me when I was still single. Your recipes are really good. I have a granddaughter who is a vegetarian and I would like to make that one for her. I think it's good for us meat eaters to go without meat every once in a while too. Thanks for sharing. I voted up and gave this 4.9 starts. It would let me give it 5.

Blessings to you.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on April 24, 2015:

Ecogranny, I make lasagna much more often now just because of that noodles tip. SO much faster and easier! I hope the method works well for you and you enjoy next week's batch of lasagna!

Kathryn Grace from San Francisco on April 23, 2015:

Your tip to soak the noodles in hot water rather than boiling them is inspired!

Lasagne is one of those things I'd rather order at a good bistro than bake myself because of boiling, draining and handling those noodles. I just hate that part! But we love spinach lasagne and I have a package of noodles in my cupboard right now, so I'm putting it on next week's menu.

Thanks for the tip.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on April 23, 2015:

HubPages is a treasure chest, indeed! Thanks so much for your visit and your vote!

Stephen J Parkin from Pine Grove, Nova Scotia, Canada on April 23, 2015:

Like Brite Ideas I had never considered adding Spinach to Lasagna before. Surprising what we learn by visiting a few Hubs! Voted up and scored as I saw fit.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on April 23, 2015:

Load on the spinach, Barbara, it's delicious in lasagna! Nice thing about these recipes is that you can improvise and add more of what you really love. And what wonderful nutrients you'll be feeding your family! I appreciate the visit, the comment, and the pin!

Barbara Tremblay Cipak from Toronto, Canada on April 22, 2015:

Susan, I must try this - spinach is one of my faves and believe it or not, I hadn't every considered using it in a lasagne - pinned for later of course!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on April 22, 2015:

I think zucchini would work, Lorelei. And it sounds delicious! I'd love to hear about the results when you try it.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on April 22, 2015:

It really is, Ann. I've made myself hungry working on this page today. So happy you stopped by!

Lorelei Cohen from Canada on April 22, 2015:

After seeing your vegetarian lasagna recipe I am wondering if zucchini would work in there. It sure looks like it might. I am going to have to give that a try.

annmackiemiller from Bingley Yorkshire England on April 22, 2015:

oh wow that veggie lasagna looks just toooo good

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on April 10, 2015:

I hope you try one or both recipes, Charito1962. I fixed the veggie lasagna last week and the meat version a couple of weeks before that. We never get tired of lasagna!

Charito Maranan-Montecillo from Manila, Philippines on April 10, 2015:

I love pasta, Ms. Susan! And these lasagna recipes make my mouth water!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on February 22, 2015:

Thanks, Nancy. It's good to have alternatives, especially when there's no eggplant to be found (as is the case this weekend).

Nancy Carol Brown Hardin from Las Vegas, NV on February 22, 2015:

Too bad HP doesn't see fit to make printable recipes, however I managed to highlight and print these out, because I wanted them badly enough to do that. Both these recipes are perfect for our family, as there are times we want meat and times we do not. Thanks so much Susan, I know we'll enjoy them.

Tami Rogers from Seattle, Washington on February 14, 2015:

Happy to! I am following you now for all things food! :)

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on February 14, 2015:

Mushroom lasagna sounds really delicious, Tamirogers! Thanks for sharing your source for the recipe. I appreciate your stopping by!

Tami Rogers from Seattle, Washington on February 13, 2015:

These look delicious!! I make a mushroom lasagna from the cookbook "Plenty" that is out of this world! Thanks for more ideas!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on January 30, 2015:

Good luck listening to your stomach growl, poetryman6969! :) Hope you get a chance to try the recipes. Thanks so much for stopping by!

poetryman6969 on January 30, 2015:

More meat and more cheese please! Really look scrumptious. Making me hungry and I still have 2 hours before lunch!

poetryman6969 on January 30, 2015:

More meat and more cheese please! Really look scrumptious. Making me hungry and I still have 2 hours before lunch!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on January 17, 2015:

I hadn't really thought about that, Ashima Tan, since we love eggplant around here. I'm sure you could use zucchini or another kind of squash. The beauty of recipes like this is being able to substitute ingredients and just use the basic method. Hope you come up with a good combination of vegetables that you love!

AshimaTan on January 17, 2015:

Sounds quite easy, will definitely try them soon…

Was wondering if there could an alternative to eggplant in the vegetarian version.. What do you suggest?

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on January 04, 2015:

Thank you, Sir Took! I hope you'll try one of these recipes and let me know how you like it.

Alfred Miller from Rowland NC/United States on January 03, 2015:

I must try this recipe I love lasagna and this looks very tasty !

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on December 26, 2014:

Hope you enjoy your lasagna, Peachpurple!

peachy from Home Sweet Home on December 26, 2014:

wow, it really look so good to eat, i must try!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on December 24, 2014:

You're welcome, Carb Diva, and thanks for stopping by! A nice pan of lasagna actually sounds really good right now. Guess I'm going to have to put it on the menu in the next few days. Hope you can give it a try, too!

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on December 24, 2014:

Both of these look and sound amazing. I love all kinds of pasta, but lasagna is my absolute favorite. Thanks for sharing.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on November 16, 2014:

Thanks! I love that shortcut, too, almost as much as the finished product. :)

savateuse on November 15, 2014:

Looks like a very tasty treat! I like your noodle shortcut too.

CherylsArt on October 27, 2014:

You're very welcome Susan. The sweetness of the carrots goes very well with the tomato sauce.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 27, 2014:

That tip will save you so much time, CherylsArt! Thanks for the idea of adding carrots and onions. Sounds very tasty!

CherylsArt on October 26, 2014:

I've added carrots and onions to my vegetarian lasagna. I'll have to give the spinach a go sometime. Thanks so much for the tip on softening the noodles without boiling!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 25, 2014:

Enjoy the recipes, sheilamarie78. Thanks for stopping by!

Sheilamarie from British Columbia on October 24, 2014:

Both of these recipes sound wonderful! I'll be making lasagna soon!

Glad you learned something new and helpful, ladyguitarpicker! Thanks so much for stopping by.

stella vadakin from 3460NW 50 St Bell, Fl32619 on October 20, 2014:

I love your short cut about the noodles this will save a lot of time and will keep my kitchen from getting to hot. You would think us Italian ladies would know this fact. Thanks.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 17, 2014:

I love that idea, ShariBerry! Sounds delicious and even more special for company. Thanks so much for sharing!

Sharon Berry from Michigan on October 17, 2014:

I love anything with pasta. Thank you for sharing these recipes. My latest lasagna recipe I made you rolled the cooked noodles up jelly roll style with the cheese and meat sauce spread over the noodle with more sauce poured on top and then baked. It turned out great and you had your own little lasagna roll. Think I'll try it with spinach on the cheese next time.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on October 04, 2014:

@Sylvestermouse, if your daughter likes eggplant and spinach, she should enjoy this recipe. I'd love to know what she thinks.

@TreasuresBrenda, my carnivore actually loves the vegetable version. I especially like it because it's so quick and easy to assemble without pre-cooking anything (one less pan to wash!). Hope you try it!

Cynthia Sylvestermouse from United States on October 03, 2014:

I am really, really glad you shared this recipe! My vegan daughter loves lasagna, but I make mine with meat. I have tried several variations for my recipe, but none have quite hit home for her. I will definitely try making your recipe the next time. (crossing my fingers now! lol)

Treasures By Brenda from Canada on October 03, 2014:

I'm sure I'd like it...my carnivores might be disappointed, LOL.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on September 25, 2014:

Teaches12345, glad you stopped by. Our weather is cooler now, perfect for heating up the house a bit with lasagna in the oven. I'm inspired, too! :) Thanks!

Dianna Mendez on September 24, 2014:

I have a box of lasagna just waiting to be used in one of your recipes. I do love the meat version over the veggie but I enjoy both. You have inspired me to make some soon.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on September 17, 2014:

I have a particular frozen lasagna that I like, but it doesn't compare to homemade, it really doesn't. And you're right, it doesn't take all that long to make it yourself. Definitely worth the time and effort, we think. Thanks for your comment, Tony. Let me know if you try one of my recipes!

Tony Payne from Southampton, UK on September 17, 2014:

I do love lasagna, but we generally buy pre-made ones from the grocery store. It's not too hard to make your own though, and home made food does taste so much better.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on September 10, 2014:

Enjoy, @DeborahDian!

Deborah Carr from Orange County, California on September 09, 2014:

These recipes look delicious. I will have to try one of them.

Shamim Rajabali from Texas on July 28, 2014:

Your tip on preping the noodles without boiling will save time. Thanks.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on July 28, 2014:

@Elyn MacInnis: Another good thing about lasagna is that you can vary it depending on your preferences. Thanks for the input and your kind comment!

Elyn MacInnis from Shanghai, China on July 27, 2014:

I like spinach so much. So I would rather have spinach lasagna with no tomato. For some reason, tomatoes are not my favorites. So for me - just plain spinach lasagna. These are great recipes, and you have some good tips too. Thank you!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on July 18, 2014:

@Heidi Vincent: You're welcome! I love making lasagna now that I don't have to boil the big pot of water. Enjoy your veggie version!

Heidi Vincent from GRENADA on July 17, 2014:

Vegetables since I'm a pesca-ovo vegetarian! Thanks for sharing that new trick about not having to boil the lasagna. That makes it very manageable now :)

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on July 15, 2014:

@diline: Sounds delicious! You'll have to consider trying the veggie version. It's really good, too. Thanks so much for stopping by!

diline on July 14, 2014:

I take a generic spaghetti sauce and add my ground beef and own spices to the mix. leave my sauce a bit runny, and use lots of cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, and cottage cheese instead of ricotta). I do not par cook my noodles, but just layer them as is. Family and friends say they love it.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on July 03, 2014:

@monika64: I'm so glad you found these recipes! I'd suggest watching the videos so you'll feel as confident as possible going into the project. You're on your way to finding a new food love - have fun!

Monique Flora on July 03, 2014:

Believe it or not i have never tried lasagna before but I was thinking of making them any time soon, I will try your recipe :)

@therealstig86: Mmm, sounds good! I'm planning to make it again today. Can't wait!

therealstig86 on June 29, 2014:

Lasagne is the best Italian meal. I had some today at Frankie and Benny's restaurant in the UK.

@smine27: I appreciate that, smine27! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Shinichi Mine from Tokyo, Japan on June 24, 2014:

I love this quick and easy method of preparing my favorite Italian dish.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on June 23, 2014:

@Susan Zutautas: The combination of ground beef and Italian sausage is what gives that recipe so much flavor. It takes a little longer to prepare than the veggie recipe, but it's well worth taking the time. Enjoy!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on June 23, 2014:

@Ibidii: Her recipe sounds wonderful! Let me know when you publish the recipe - I'd love to see it and probably make it!

Ibidii on June 23, 2014:

Nom Nom! How interesting that National Lasagna Day is near my late husband's birthday, I will tell the kids and have my daughter make us her recipe. She makes a pesto Lasagna with lots of cheese and spinach. It has a great cream base sauce. Very different. She does not precook her noodles. It comes out really good, lots of garlic as well. I will put up the recipe soon. When she feels good and takes lots of photos for the lens, then I do a story! Great recipes!

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on June 23, 2014:

I've not made homemade lasagna in so long but I have to try your meat sauce one.

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on June 23, 2014:

@favored: My husband loves the eggplant version, in fact we both do. It's absolutely delicious. Hope you enjoy it and hope your husband enjoys the meat version!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on June 23, 2014:

@Merrci: Thanks, Merrci! Lasagna for breakfast sounds like perfect fuel for the day- I say go for it! And yes, the noodles tip works beautifully and with so much less muss and fuss. Glad you stopped by!

Merry Citarella from Oregon's Southern Coast on June 23, 2014:

Both recipes look and sound so good. I'm wondering if it would be appropriate for breakfast this morning. Yum! Must fix some soon. Love your tip for doing the noodles in a pan to soften!

Fay Favored from USA on June 22, 2014:

These recipes can cover both our tastes (hubby's meat - mine veggie). Haven't thought about eggplant in it.

Ruthi on June 22, 2014:

@SusanDeppner: I definitely plan to make it, Susan, and will let you know when I do!

Susan Deppner (author) from Arkansas USA on June 22, 2014:

@Ruthi: I'm ready to make another pan of it, that's for sure. I hope you do try it - and love it!

Ruthi on June 22, 2014:

Oh, I do love lasagna and have not made it in ages, now I just may have to plan to do that for Lasagna Day! I think I will try Susan's eggplant and spinach lasagna recipe!
