Lasagna Recipes to Satisfy Everyone!

Lasagna-Variations-to-Satisfy-Everyone-by-Sisters-Know-Best

Lasagna recipes – everyone has their own “best”. There are so different many ways to make lasagna that it never gets boring.  We love that a pan of it can feed a houseful of guests or provide dinner for the family for a week. And with different fillings, etc., it’s never the same dish twice in a row. Here are a few of our favorite lasagna recipes. And here’s our absolute favorite pan.

Vegetarian Lasagna 

A basic vegetarian lasagna includes zucchini and summer squash instead of meat as well as peppers, carrots, and corn for added flavor. You could also get more creative with mushrooms and kale.  No matter what vegetables you use, no one will miss the meat! Try it for your next meatless Monday meal.

Spinach Lasagna 

Perhaps the most classic vegetarian lasagna, spinach lasagna is also super easy to make and hearty enough for even the biggest appetites. With the right seasonings, it tastes out of this world fantastic! 

Bison Lasagna with Spinach and Ricotta

Yes, BISON lasagna!  Did you know you can sub bison equally for beef?  Plus, bison meat has fewer calories and less saturated fat than beef, and a relative proportion of unsaturated to saturated fats is better for health, especially heart health.  Compared to beef, bison meat is also richer in protein.  Toss in some spinach, and your taste buds will sing!

Chicken Lasagna Recipes

Beef may be the most common meat in lasagna recipes, but we love using chicken too – especially as we’re trying to eat healthier and maintain a balanced weight. With creamy white cheese and spinach, this chicken lasagna recipe is a crowd-pleaser. It’s a break from tradition, too, because it uses white sauce instead of red. For added flavor, experiment with herbs.  Maybe a little red pepper to add some zip?  Anyway you spice it, you’ll  love chicken lasagna!

Seafood Lasagna 

This may sound a bit odd at first, but seafood lasagna is actually really good. Try it with scallops and shrimp since those are common in Italian cooking. You can also make it with a white sauce and imitation crab meat.  If you’re a fan of clam spaghetti or shrimp scampi, seafood lasagna is right up your alley.

Traditional Lasagna 

Everyone has a favorite beef lasagna recipe. In addition to being lasagna fans, we love cheese.  So, this beef lasagna with three cheeses is frequently requested. Because we’re trying to eat healthier, we also like this version for a traditional lasagna recipe that uses cottage cheese (or in our case, non-fat cottage cheese) instead of ricotta. Another favorite also uses cottage cheese but offers a lot more in the flavor department since it calls for cloves.  We know.  It sounds a little odd, but it’s really good. Try it! You’ll see.

Mexican Style Lasagna Recipes

Beef lasagna may traditionally be Italian, but adding Mexican flavors and veggies creates an amazing combination. It’s like a taco with noodles! Irresistible! This one is sure to be a hit at your next potluck function or home lasagna night.  For those doing a Mexican-themed meal, try our Mexican spaghetti squash recipe.  Super yummy!

Smaller-Portioned Lasagna

For those who are looking for smaller sized lasagnas, Cooking for One, Not an Army offers a great recipe.  This recipe works great for a single serving.  Or you may choose to make several single servings and freeze them.  Simply adjust your ingredients accordingly.  Tip:  Make several variations by adjusting the protein, or lack thereof!

Dietary Needs Alternatives 

Sometimes we need to alter our lasagna for people with dietary restrictions such as no dairy or gluten intolerance. There’s some pretty cool ways to do it – and they taste amazing to all of us, no matter what we normally eat. You can substitute cheeses made from cows milk to goat’s milk or substitute the noodles for zucchini. Below are some recipes that do that. We recommend taking the lasagna you love and then make it with the ingredients you normally use to substitute out items. Because this is a casserole, it all blends together for an amazing combination. 

Dairy-Free Lasagna Recipes

This is super easy! For any lasagna recipe you can replace the ricotta cheese with squash. If that doesn’t appeal to you, there’s also great vegan cheeses on the market – that actually melt! Check out Daiya brands to find out where to buy them in your area. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try using nutritional yeast to make a cream sauce from scratch. 

Gluten Free 

More and more people are avoiding gluten whether because of an intolerance or a desire to keep carbs down. Either way, it’s still possible to enjoy lasagna. One of our favorite ideas is to use zucchini instead of noodles. But if you’re looking for something more traditional that’s still gluten free, check the pasta aisle for rice lasagna noodles.
