Vegetarian Lasagna

If you think of ground meat when you hear about lasagna, you will forget about classic lasagna with this recipe. There it is; Vegetarian Lasagna!

Lasagna consists of bechamel, ragu, parmesan cheese and pasta dough cut into long strips. Lasagna is a famous Italian dish. The history of this dish, which is as satisfying as it is delicious, dates back to ancient times. 

The first lasagna recipe was found in the English cookbook in 1390. The word lasagna is actually the name of the cookware, but over the years, lasagna has only been called a dish. Lasagna can be eaten not only with the minced meat sauce, which the Italians call ragu, but also by making different versions. Vegetarian, chicken or vegetable versions are also very popular. 

In this recipe, we wanted to please not only the classic lasagna lovers, but also our vegetarian followers. We prepared a healthy and satisfying vegetable mortar between lasagna slices.

Lasagna is baked in the oven by lining up in layers. Lastly, it is served by adding parmesan to it. Starting from the bottom, the layers are bechamel, macaroni, ragu, béchamel sauce and macaroni. Before the lasagna is cooked, all the ingredients are cooked separately. Recipe details and ingredients below:
