Pepperoni & Veggie Lasagna

(Note this makes two lasagna pans, if you just want one, cut recipe in half)

  • 18 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 1 egg
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 15 oz. can of fat free ricotta cheese (you may want more, but I prefer less)
  • 4 teaspoons parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium size tomatoes, diced or cans of diced tomatoes
  • 4 to 8 cups of spaghetti sauce (I used light Ragu & I used 5 cups)
  • 4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 16 oz. cans of shredded green beans (you can use fresh or frozen)
  • 1 package of turkey pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Fat free cooking spray 

  1. Cook lasagna noodles according to package (do not break). 
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk the eggs, egg whites, ricotta cheese, parsley, basil, oregano, & pepper. Set aside.
  3. Layer each with 1/4 of the ricotta mixture, diced tomatoes, 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
  4. Then add additional three lasagna noodles to each, and top each with 1 can of green beans.
  5. Top with 15 to 20 pepperoni slices, remaining ricotta mixture, additional spaghetti sauce, remaining lasagna noodles.
  6. Top with mozzarella cheese & parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
    Question for you...what type of veggies do you add to your lasagna???

    I would love to know that you visited my blog or tried out a recipe. Leave me some love & encouragement!

    Your dad would never eat veggies in lasagna so to answer your question, I don't put any veggies in. Just ground beef (and cheese of course). Have you tried the new "no-cook" lasagna noodles. I like the size of the barilla ones. It helps if you water down your sauce a little, but it does save a step (AND a pot)

    I'm with your mom. I can't say i have put veggies in lasagna. Seems like a smart idea though. Did you like it?

    Loved it! The green beans were great. I want to try zucchini next time.
