No-boil noodles help get this crowd-pleasing vegetarian lasagna in the oven fast. Using a mandoline isn't essential, but will make quick work of producing thin, uniform slices of roots that cook super-evenly and look stunning. Serve with a mixed green salad with red-wine vinaigrette and crusty bread.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with butter.

  • Whisk broth and mascarpone in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth, about 5 minutes. Add thyme, oregano and salt; remove from heat.

  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Arrange 4 noodles in the prepared baking dish, slightly overlapping. Top with 1/4 cup of the spinach and 3/4 cup vegetables. Pour on 1 cup of the mascarpone mixture and top with 1/3 cup farmer's cheese. Repeat to make 4 layers. Cover with a piece of foil coated with cooking spray.

  • Bake the lasagna for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake until the edges start to crisp, about 15 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

A beautiful and really tasty lasagne. Don t be put off by the amount of liquid. It s correct! I made my own noodles; no need to parboil as they just cook in the dish and are FAR superior to pre made. Read More

This vegetarian lasagna is creamy filling and elegant. I used a mandoline to ensure consistency with slicing. My finished product didn't look as fancy as the featured picture but make no mistake this lasagna is delicious! Read More
