Not big on tomato sauce? This dish layers white sauce and mushrooms between sheets of noodles for a flavorful, cheesy meal. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and bake until bubbly and browned.
You can’t go wrong with a classic! Make your own zesty marinara sauce to layer over a blend of ricotta and mozzarella for a big bite of Italian delight.
Can’t decide between Mexican and Italian cuisine for dinner? We think you should have both. The traditional noodles and sausage are replaced with taco meat and tortillas for a uniquely savory experience. Taco-bout the perfect compromise!
This recipe provides a great alternative for a meat-lover looking to cut back on beef or pork. Simply mix turkey sausage with tomatoes, parsley and basil for the meat-filled sauce layer.
Cutting back on meat altogether? This recipe uses portobello and cremini mushrooms to provide a hearty layer between the cheese and noodles.
Squash your routine lasagna recipe and shake it up with this tasty veggie-forward dish. Seasoned butternut squash topped with amaretti cookies is a delicious blend that’s sure to leave an impression. To take it a step farther, substitute the no-boil lasagna noodles with fresh spinach lasagna sheets.
This tomato and spinach dish has more than meets the eye. Grated nutmeg, Parmigiano-Reggiano, mozzarella and ricotta mixed with spinach and garlic settle between blankets of noodles for a creamy rich flavor.
These pocket-sized treats provide perfectly portion sizes for anyone looking to enjoy an Italian delight. Rolled-up noodles filled with a pesto-bechamel sauce makes for a bunch of mini-lasagnas in one! Add crushed red pepper on top for some extra zest.
Although lasagna is generally classified as Italian food, the noodle, cheese and sausage recipe most of us think of can still feel a bit Americanized. For some true Italian cuisine, blend spinach with Parmesan cheese and whip up some homemade tomato sauce complete with onion, garlic, celery and carrots.
Too exhausted from work to bake the cheesy comfort food?? No problem! If you’ve got an Instant Pot, simply mix together cheese, noodles and tomato sauce for a tasty lasagna dish with minimal preparation.
