Popular Martha Stewart Lasagna Recipes

Below, we’ve hand-picked a selection of the most popular and straightforward lasagna recipes from Martha Stewart’s extensive repertoire.

Let’s get stuck in to find your new favorite family dish.

1. Traditional Lasagna Bolognese

When it comes to Martha Stewart’s lasagnas this is easily one of her very best.

This is a hearty lasagna with a herby ricotta mixture and Bolognese sauce that is perfect for the midweek when you want something filling, delicious, and classic to enjoy with the family.

The trick to making this lasagna perfect is to use a deep-dish baking pan. You can use a smaller pan, but expect some extra sauce when it is done baking.

Serve with some crusty garlic bread for the ultimate comforting meal.

2. Famous Lasagna

Famous lasagna – now that’s a bold statement … but one bite of this and you’ll understand why!

Rich and full of flavor, this Martha Stewart lasagna will quickly become a firm favorite to whoever you serve it to.

Combining creamy ricotta cheese with rich meat sauce, fresh parsley, and gooey mozzarella, this lasagna is so delicious that you won’t be able to get enough of it – make sure there’s enough for second helpings.

If you want to make this recipe a little fancier, try adding some pancetta to the meat sauce. This gives the whole dish even more depth and flavor.

3. Healthier Meat Lasagna

Lasagna is a dish built on richness and comfort, so health isn’t always the main focus, but if you are following a diet, Martha Stewart has created this recipe so you don’t have to miss out on this classic Italian meal.

This dish is a healthier alternative because it uses ingredients such as whole-wheat noodles, low-fat cottage cheese, and lean ground sirloin.

Don’t let the term ‘healthy’ turn you off, though – it still tastes just as good as the other recipes on this list.

This is the perfect lasagna to make if you are trying to follow a health regime but still want to enjoy tasty food.

Vegetable Lasagna Recipes By Martha Stewart

If you’re a vegetarian, you might feel a bit left out when it comes to lasagna, but you don’t have to be.

There are plenty of vegetarian and vegetable-centric lasagna recipes out there, and Martha Stewart has a fantastic selection.

Below, we have included our favorite vegetable lasagna recipes by Martha Stewart, so read on to find your next favorite recipe.

4. Vegetable Lasagna

If you’d rather have vegetables as the main ingredient in your lasagna, then you need to try this recipe.

Spinach is the star in this vegetable lasagna, combined with whole-milk ricotta cheese, chunky tomato sauce, and fontina cheese, to create a creamy and refreshing lasagna you will absolutely love.

Even if you prefer meaty lasagnas, you will still enjoy this veggie alternative.

5. Zucchini-Ribbon “Lasagna”

What makes this recipe unique is that you will use strips of zucchini instead of lasagna noodles between the layers of this dish.

Also, you will be using ground turkey instead of ground beef, which combined with the zucchini, makes this a healthier dish with a slightly different flavor.

Of course, if you’re strictly veggie, you can swap the ground turkey for Quorn or tofu instead.

If you are looking for a lasagna dish that goes against the norm but still tastes just as good, you will absolutely love this recipe.

6. Mushroom Eggplant Lasagna

If you are in the mood for an umami-rich vegetable lasagna, then look no further than Martha’s mushroom eggplant recipe.

Combining ingredients such as no-boil noodles, silky eggplant, and cremini mushrooms, this lasagna is earthy, tangy, and full of flavor.

You’ll also be using three kinds of cheese in this recipe – mozzarella, ricotta, and Parmigiano-Reggiano, but don’t be afraid to experiment a bit with different cheeses to see what works best for your own tastes.

7. Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna

This roasted butternut squash lasagna is a firm fall favorite of ours, and it’s a recipe you’ll not want to miss out on.

The lasagna noodles are layered between a herby sage and butternut squash filling that gives this dish a unique flavor you won’t be able to get enough of.

The recipe recommends homemade noodles, which might be a bit of extra work but worth it for the final results. If you don’t have time, though, store-bought works just as well.

Meaty And Moreish Lasagna Recipes By Martha Stewart

Lasagna is traditionally made with meat, so it’s only right that we include some of Martha’s best meat lasagna recipes in this list.

Whether you are in the mood for traditional bolognese lasagna or something a little different, you will find the perfect recipe here.

Which one will you try first?

8. Slow Cooker Sausage Lasagna

Lasagna is already a comforting dish, but this Slow Cooker Sausage Lasagna takes that comfort to a whole new level.

You’ll be leaving this lasagna to cook for four to six hours before you serve it, giving the ingredients time to combine and roast together to create a dish that is out of this world.

This recipe is perfect for meat lovers, mixing together Italian pork sausage and ground beef sirloin, which comes together in a tender blend you won’t soon forget.

9. Spinach And Prosciutto Lasagna

Spinach and prosciutto come together in this recipe to create a lasagna that is refreshing and full of flavor.

This is a fantastic lasagna to make if you can’t decide between meat or vegetables and you want something a little different from the classic recipe.

One tip that is important with this recipe is to make sure you squeeze the thawed spinach dry; otherwise, the lasagna can be a bit too watery. As long as you remember this tip, you should have no issues in bringing this recipe to life.

10. Lasagna Bolognese

This is another classic Lasagna Bolognese recipe but it includes a hearty meat sauce that really takes it to the next level.

This recipe uses both ground pork (or veal) and ground beef to create a lasagna that is every meat lover’s dream.

Combined with a creamy bechamel sauce and an assortment of vegetables, this makes for the perfect midweek meal.

Serve with a small side salad if you want to make this meal a bit more filling.

Top Tips For Making Your Own Lasagna

Lasagna isn’t necessarily a hard dish to make, but having a few tricks up your sleeve can definitely make the whole cooking process a bit easier.

We have included some of our best tips and tricks here to help you make the perfect lasagna every single time you cook it.

It’s All About The Layers

When it comes to assembling the perfect lasagna, one of the most important things to remember is the layers.

You don’t need hundreds of layers, but you also don’t want too little either. The ideal amount of layers you will need is anywhere between 3 and 5, but we recommend scaling up rather than down.

Having more layers means you don’t have to squish the ingredients and fillings together and gives you more room to experiment with your filling.

When In Doubt, Underbake!

Once a lasagna has been overbaked, it can’t really be saved, and this is why it’s always better to underbake it if you aren’t sure.

If you underbake it, you can just put it back in the oven for a little longer, but if it’s been overbaked, it just becomes mush.

Check your lasagna frequently. You can tell a lasagna is done when the top is nicely brown with crisp edges. So once you see this, remove it from the oven and don’t put it back in.

Final Thoughts

Lasagna is a beloved dish enjoyed by children and adults alike. But there’s nothing quite like homemade lasagna.

Martha Stewart has perfected her lasagna recipes to cater to all tastes – from meat-eaters to veggies – so you can bring this deicious comfort food to your own table.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Layers Should A Traditional Lasagna Have?

Most people make lasagna with just 3 layers, but if you want a more traditional lasagna, it needs to have 4 to 5 layers.

How Do You Layer Lasagna So It Doesn’t Fall Apart?

The best way to layer lasagna so it doesn’t fall apart all comes down to the cheese. Use sliced mozzarella cheese in between layers to make sure it doesn’t fall apart. The cheese acts as a sort of ‘glue’ that keeps the whole dish together.

Can I Prepare Lasagna 2 Days Ahead?

You can prepare lasagna ahead of time, but you should not prepare it more than 24 hours ahead of time. This is because of the cheese and the other ingredients, especially if you are using things like fresh vegetables.
