Vegetarian Zucchini Lasagna Recipe

Do you have recipes that you smell and when you close your eyes, you could swear you were at mom’s home or in Grandma’s kitchen? I have those moments and I truly cherish those childhood memories with fondness. Those delicious foods bring a smile to my face because they’re not just food; they’re reminders, they’re memories.

Family Traditions and Recipes

Certain tomato sauces do that to me and I love that. They bring back memories and make me want to recreate them over and over to share with family and friends. I want to magnify those memories by creating new ones around them. It is the epitome of happiness around mealtime.

Most importantly, it’s not just using a recipe for the sake of using a recipe; it’s not eating for the sake of eating, but it is a wonderful experience with those whom we care about. This Vegetarian Zucchini Lasagna Recipe does just that for our family!

The Best Tomato Sauces

I love tomato sauces that are rich, thick and hearty. They bring a wonderful boost of flavors that will make you want more. The new Homestyle Ragú sauces bring you just that! We tried the Thick & Hearty Traditional sauce give your meal a made-from-scratch taste. There are five bold flavors — Traditional, Meat, Roasted Garlic, Four Cheese and Mushroom.

I am a DIY gal and love to make my own sauces. Dues to time restrictions and a busy family life, I cannot always make them from scratch. I’m telling you: this sauce is not only delicious, but it is another wonderful healthy alternative to spending hours making your own.

This new set of Homestyle Ragú sauces comes WITHOUT artificial flavors, NO artificial colors and NO high fructose corn syrup! They are made with California-grown tomatoes, onions and herbs. They are growing the ingredients right here at home!

And now, to the recipe! I decided to try something different and new. Rather than going with the flat version, I made vegetarian lasagna blossoms in ramekins. They are the PERFECT serving size for kids and my kids LOVE these! For this recipe, you will only need 3 ingredients and salt and pepper to taste.

Ingredients:

  • 1 chubby zucchini for every 2 servings (if you are making 6 servings, you will need 3 zucchinis)
  • Homestyle Ragú sauce (we love the Traditional and the Roasted Garlic for this recipe)
  • Shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese (enough to put on top of the blossom)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps for the Vegetarian Zucchini Lasagna Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Use a mandolin to slice the uncooked zucchini length-wise. I use the thin slice setting.
  3. Place the slices on a tray or baker’s pad and slather a spoonful of Homestyle Ragú sauce on the top surface of each slice and sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. You may choose to put shredded cheese on some slices, if you wish.
  4. Some slices will be more malleable than others. Use the softer ones to roll them into smaller rolls. When you are done with one roll, use a new slice to roll outside that rolls and so on. Continue rolling the slices to look like a flower blossom until it is big enough to fit well in the ramekin.
  5. If there is still room between the blossom and the ramekin, feel free to slide in another slice or two until it fits tightly.
  6. Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top and some salt and pepper, if desired. I added some more sauce, too.
  7. Place ramekins on an oven-safe tray (cookie sheet, stone, etc) and put in oven for 15 minutes.
  8. Cool for a few minutes and serve hot. Enjoy your Vegetarian Zucchini Lasagna Recipe!
