THE BEST Lasagna Recipe

The best lasagna recipes, in my opinion, call for mascarpone cheese. Which is creamy and delicious, and add a sophistication to lasagna ingredients!

You can make this lasagna easy recipe a vegetarian lasagna by swapping out the sausage for 1 cup of diced eggplant. Just be sure to sweat the eggplant before you add it to the mix. (I’ll give directions for that below!)

The Best Lasagna Recipe

In my opinion (and that of many of my thousands of readers) this is the worlds best lasagna!

This vegetable lasagna has a healthy amount of turkey sausage to add protein and lots of flavor. It also infuses the mushrooms and zucchini (which both have a meaty consistency when cooked) with all the wonderful flavors to make what tastes like a meaty lasagna… But is 50% veggies!

Lasagna Ingredients

Ingredients for lasagna vary, but I try to keep them traditional… As an Italian woman I don’t want to anger my ancestors (wink).

One of the ingredients of lasagna you may find out of the norm of the traditional American Lasagna Recipe, is the mascarpone cheese.

This traditional lasagna ingredient is what gives this lasagna with zucchini and sausage its signature, traditional flavor. So try it, I guarantee you will never go back!

Another ingredient you may not be familiar with, are the lasagna noodles. I use no-cook lasagna noodles. They will save you time and perhaps even you sanity, as dealing with cooked lasagna noodles is the hardest part of making baked lasagna.
