Simple Veggie or Vegan Lasagna Recipe

Lasagna is a traditional Italian dish made of layers of flat pasta sheets, a tomato based sauce, various types of cheese, and in this case vegetables. Today I wanted to share my recipe for this delicious veggie lasagna.  It's simple to make and can serve a whole family.  Cheese is a key ingredient in lasagna, however this recipe can also be adapted for vegans bt simply replacing the cheese with vegan cheese. 


  • A packet/box of dry pasta sheets 
  • 2 large aubergines (or 3 smaller ones) 
  • 2-3 cans of chopped tomatoes and/or a passata
  • 1 large white onion 
  • Mozzarella (and any other cheese of your choice - I like grated cheddar for the top layer)
  • Red pepper (optional)  
  • Garlic cloves & olive oil
  • Salt, pepper & smoked paprika

  1. Chop the aubergines into circles around 1cm thick and then dice the onion and red pepper onto small pieces. 
  2. Place all of the chopped vegetables on a baking tray, cover with salt, pepper and olive oil and cook for around 20 minutes. 
  3. Whilst the vegetables are in the oven, add some olive oil and fresh garlic to a pan and then add the chopped tomatoes or passata and let it simmer for around 15 minutes, adding salt, pepper and some water if needed. 
  4. Once the vegetables are ready, layer them in a deep oven dish with the pasta sheets, sauce and cheese. I like to put some veggies first, then some lasagna sheets and then the sauce before adding some cheese. It is important to make sure that the sheets are property covered in sauce so that they soften and cook through properly. 
  5. Once you have finished layering, add some more cheese on top and bake in the oven for around 30-40 minutes.
