I have been making this Spinach Artichoke Lasagna for years, and it is always a crowd pleaser. It’s also perfect if you don’t have a crowd because the leftovers are excellent.

Bake up a pan of this spinach artichoke lasagna for a vegetarian meal even a true carnivore will love!

This vegetarian lasagna is a favorite at our house, and it was one of the first recipes I shared here. That means the original photos were horrid, but it has taken me over two years to come back and redo it. Why? Well, two reasons really. Mainly, the original recipe was a bit time consuming. There was chopping, browning, and simmering to be done before you even got to the assembling step, and I always found myself too weary to go to all that trouble. The other reason is that when I gave up wheat, I had to start using gluten-free lasagna noodles, which needed to be boiled first, adding even more work. Ain’t nobody got time for that. (Well, at least I don’t because I’m lazy.)

Recently, something wonderful happened at my favorite place. This sounds like I’m leading up to a romantic story about a date at a quiet bistro or something, but no. The thing that happened was I found no-boil gluten free lasagna noodles at Target! I think the entire grocery section could hear me exclaiming with glee. Have you ever looked at the pasta at Target? They are one of the only stores I’ve ever seen spelt noodles, and they have a bunch of kinds of GF pasta too. You should check it out if you’re into that sort of thing.

With the no-boil noodle problem solved, I was ready to make this tasty spinach artichoke lasagna again. Once it came time to make it, I thought I could probably cut out some of the work. I mean, does it really need sautéed onions like originally called for? I say no, and I think the quick prep more than makes up for any flavor they added. It is important that you follow the recipe instructions to get the results you want though. If you change the noodles, drain or don’t drain something, or forget to thaw your spinach, you might end up with a too dry or watery result. Here, let me show you what I mean:

I don’t have many vegetarian recipes around here because I’m a big meat lover, but even I don’t miss it in this hearty, flavorful spinach artichoke lasagna. I hope it’s a hit at your house too!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together broth, artichoke hearts, spinach, pasta sauce, and tomatoes.
  3. Thinly cover bottom of baking dish with 2 cups of the sauce mixture. Top with 4 uncooked noodles, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle a couple handfuls (about a cup) of mozzarella cheese over noodles. Repeat sauce-noodle-cheese layers two more times. Pour remaining sauce mixture on top, and sprinkle remaining mozzarella and crumbled feta on top.
  4. Spray one side of a piece of foil with cooking spray, and cover the lasagna (sprayed side down). Bake for 40 minutes. Uncover, and bake 15 minutes more, or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Notes

It is important to squeeze the spinach dry and use no-boil noodles to ensure that there is not too much liquid in the recipe.

Tried this recipe tonight and it was a hit. My one year old cleared his plate in record time.

I did add garlic to the sauce, and because I had some ricotta handy, I mixed it up with an egg and some dried parsley, and added it to the mozzarella layers. The oven ready lasagna sheets are my new favorite thing.

Do you think using the fresh baby spinach in the bag would work?

Hi, Bonnie! Sorry for the late response. I do think baby spinach would work. Instead of cooking it into the sauce, I would just layer it on top of the sauce in the middle layers. Thanks for asking!

GF pasta is easy to find, but the no-boil noodles were a first. I just went to Target yesterday too. Love that place! xo

I am with ya there…I stray away from lasagna because it seems time consuming! But with the no boil noodles it is practically fool proof and a quick dish! Perfection!

HA! I read the title of your latest email as “Spinach Artichoke Lasagna That Taste Like Milkshakes”, completely missing the “and Smoothies” part! I was like NO WAY!!! :D

That’s funny because when I wrote the title I thought it lasagna and milkshakes didn’t sound very appetizing together. Lasagna that tastes like milkshakes sounds even worse!

A friend told me today that she made this and it was good but too watery. She did say she didn’t use no-boil noodles or drain the spinach, so I just wanted to mention that those steps are important! If you use cooked lasagna noodles or skip the thaw/drain/squeeze step for the spinach, you probably need to reduce the broth at least by half.

I love, love, love your lasagna recipe! I am lazy, though, and don’t bother thawing and squeezing the spinach. I just throw it all in frozen and cut back on the broth(wine) if I need to.

Thanks, Lynne! I will admit that I don’t always thaw the spinach either, but I thought I should publish the official method ;)
