Lasagna is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. There is something so remarkably perfect about sheets of pasta layered with delicious and warm flavors. My favorite part of lasagna is how adaptable and varied it can be. I could post a lasagna recipe every single day for a year and never replicate the same dish.
But the problem with lasagna? How much of a pain it can be to make. It is definitely not a dish to make on a weeknight. Or, a dish to make if you hate leftovers. Until now! I’ve discovered a method for making lasagna that is so customizable and easy that you can make a single serving on a weeknight without breaking a sweat. Introducing: the lasagna stack!
To make a lasagna stack, I simply boil three noodles and stack them as I usually would stack lasagna layers on a cookie sheet. Then, once the cooking is done, I slice the stack in half, plop one on top of the other and BAM a beautiful, perfect, single piece of lasagna.
The key to a successful lasagna stack is using ingredients that are solid and not liquidy. The standard lasagna filing of meat and cheese and sauce would render a complete mess, but by using a small amount of cheese and sauce and flavorful, healthful roasted veggies to fill the stacks, you end up with a single piece of homemade lasagna without stress.
I roasted zucchini, red peppers and mushrooms to fill my lasagna stacks, but you can easily sub in whatever veggies you have around. Whatever you choose, just make sure to slice them thinly so they roast quickly and stack flatly between the sheets of pasta.
Also, you can easily expand this to serve more than one. This is a great recipe to make for two or three (just double or triple it) but once you get to serving four or more, it might be time to go the standard method for lasagna. But you can use the same ingredients.
If the season is warm, feel free to roast the veggies outdoor on the grill. It’ll add a nice smoky flavor to the end result dish.

I’m DROOLING! This looks so good… Can’t wait to try it!!!
this is so smart! i live by myself so this is perfect for a solo night of warm comforting eats. i definitely plan to make this soon. thanks!
this is a great idea! it’s just me and my husband in our house, so if i make a big meal, we’re eating the same leftovers FOREVER. sometimes that’s ok, but not all the time. this is perfect to make two servings and leave it at that!
This seriously has my stomach rumbling. I love lasagna especially veggie lasagnas. I make a really good 4-cheese pumpkin lasagna, that also has roasted tomatoes in it.
You just made my day!
omg…roasted veggies in lasagna! I want to make more lasagna now! Your photos are bursting with colour! Love it.
Umm, this looks absolutely amazing! I must try this, thanks for the recipe!
What a great idea! I need to do this because we always have waaaay too many left overs (and this is super cute AND portion controlled)!
Look absolutely wonderful Lasagna, I will try it soon.
Merry Chrsitmas and a happy new year,
Merry Christmas to you, too! :)
I am pinning it [pinterest!] for further use.
love your liberal use of vegetables!
Thanks so much Becca! :)
This is such a brilliant idea – I love lasagna too, but never feel up to laboring over it. Thanks!
Thanks, Lauren! :)
What a great idea!!
Well, I mesed up and bought a cucumber instead of a zucchini, but it still turned out yummy. I added thinly sliced carrots and spinach to the mix, and aded a pinch of cayenne to the salt and pepper seasoning for some heat. Can’t wait to try it with actual zucchini next time!
Can this be made three or days ahead.
Can this recipe be made three or four days ahead?
I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see why not!
