18 Swoon-Worthy Lasagnas to Cheese Up Your Next Meatless Monday

The list of tasty eats to whip up on a #MeatlessMonday is endless… especially when it comes to our favorite: comfort food! When the weather outside is frosty, vegetarian chili is just the thing to settle in with. There are also veggie stuffed peppers for when you’re craving something filling, vegetarian risotto for when you want a warming rice platter and make-ahead casseroles for when “easy” is a MUST. With growing interest in turning classic dishes into vegetarian meals, we take great satisfaction in knowing that we will *never* run out of appetizing and absolutely delicious options to make on Mondays. We’re adding these 18 scrumptious veggie-filled lasagnas to that delicious list.

1. Four Cheese and Mushroom Rolled Lasagna: A lasagna doesn’t have to be built layer by layer; rolling ’em up is a perfect way to enjoy the essence of the classic comfort food. This beauty incorporates meat-y mushrooms with ricotta, mozzarella, goat cheese and Parmesan to treat your senses. (via The Modern Proper)

2. Zucchini Lasagna With Vegan Ricotta: Forget noodles — thin planks of zucchini lay down the foundation in this meatless lasagna. Vegans can enjoy this recipe too, thanks to the addition of scrumptious tofu ricotta. If you aren’t vegan, you can top this bad boy off with a healthy dose of cheese for melty goodness. (via Camille Styles)

3. Pesto Lasagna Roll-Ups: These flavor-filled roll-ups are a simple yet exciting twist on traditional lasagna. Stuffed with a pesto and spinach filling, these rolls are covered with a creamy béchamel. There’s also a generous amount of mozzarella here, because a lasagna isn’t a lasagna without stretchy cheese! (via Two Peas and Their Pod)

4. Slow Cooker Veggie Lasagna: The idea of digging into a homemade lasagna is amazing. Sadly, the sheer amount of work involved in making one often has us ordering takeout. That’s why this slow cooker lasagna is a must-have recipe. With no-boil noodles, a crock pot and some delish veggies, this lasagna makes your Meatless Monday extra easy and extra tasty. (via Slow Cooker Gourmet)

5. Freestyle Eggplant Lasagna: If you dig eggplant Parm, you need this brilliant eggplant lasagna in your life STAT. This recipe dishes up layers of noodles, cheese and vegetables in a no-fuss way, all while looking elegant AF. (via Scrummy Lane)

6. Cauliflower Noodle Spinach Lasagna: This stunning lasagna has more layers than earth itself. Cauliflower noodles, tomatoes, spinach, ricotta and mozzarella create this fifteen-level striation of everything that is nutritious and delicious. This is what lasagna is ALL about, folks.

7. Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna: A delicious lasagna doesn’t have to be limited to Italian flavors. This Mexican-inspired twist with corn, black beans and enchilada sauce is what dreams are made of. (via Recipe Tin Eats)

These zucchini rolls are stuffed with spinach, ricotta and a chunky marinara, all while being low carb, grain free and GF. Go on; dig in. (via A Saucy Kitchen)

9. Garden Fresh Vegetable Lasagna: You certainly don’t need bolognese sauce to indulge in a filling lasagna — and this recipe proves it. Chunks of fresh vegetables give you all the oomph you need in this hearty variation. (via The Rustic Foodie)

10. Artichoke Mushroom Lasagna With Béchamel Sauce: Most of our fave creamy dips involve cheese and artichokes, so the fact that the two are included in this lasagna is extremely exciting. Béchamel and cheese make this lasagna creamy and dreamy, while the mushrooms bring a heartiness that will leave you feeling satisfied. (via Green Healthy Cooking)

11. Spinach and Matzo Lasagna: Dill and feta and matzo? Oh my! This is probably the furthest thing from a traditional lasagna, and we couldn’t be more excited. The innovative spin offers tangy flavors and is perfect for anyone who digs fresh dill and crumbly feta. (via Two of a Kind Cooks)

12. Squash Basil Amaretti Lasagna: This may not *look* like your traditional lasagna, but it’s a gorgeous tribute to Italian flavors nonetheless. Velvety butternut squash is mixed with Parmesan cheese and Amaretti cookies, then layered between lasagna noodles and drizzled with a basil béchamel sauce. Hello, comfort food. (via Two Purple Figs)

13. Vegetarian Lasagne: This robust lasagna is bursting with flavor while boasting good-for-you ingredients. Within these layers, you’ll find smooth and buttery squash, spinach and a traditional red sauce that will blow your mind. (via Bea’s Cookbook)

14. Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Kale Lasagna: An Italian classic with Mexican flare — hard to compete with that.

16. Creamy Pesto Lasagna: This rich and creamy pesto lasagna will knock your socks off. The best part is that it’s super easy to make — just mix up some pesto, béchamel sauce, mozz and Parm, and start layering. Because pesto is the shining star here, it’s recommended to use the homemade stuff, but store-bought will do the trick in a pinch. (via Cooking the Globe)

17. Three Cheese Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna: As much as one might love eating healthy and whole foods, balance is a must. We have to indulge in our fair share of comfort food once in a while. However, in this dish, the two worlds collide in a comforting dish that’s both mouth-watering and healthy. (via Lemons and Basil)

18. Vegan White Lasagna: Rice noodles make this scrumptious lasagna the perfect GF option for those suffering from gluten intolerance — because no one should miss out on lasagna. Cauliflower sauce brings a rich and creamy texture to this dish, making it easy to forget there’s no cheese. (via Honeycomb Market)
