In total transparency, this was originally supposed to be a kid’s Halloween lasagna.
I was going to put little olive slice eyes on top with a roasted red pepper tongue. Something ghoulish and Pinterest-worthy.
Then, I realized, this isn’t necessarily a kid’s lasagna – it’s a healthier, gluten-free lasagna for kids and adults of all ages!
I know you’re now bummed that there aren’t little eyes and red tongues, but hey, you can always do it yourself! Kind of like my eyeball spaghetti from a couple of years ago.
This lasagna serves eight people and can be made in a large skillet or casserole pan. I used a large skillet for two reasons: 1) my casserole dishes haven’t arrived to the new office yet, and I was too lazy to run upstairs and grab one from our apartment and 2) the round sweet potato slices work well in a round skillet!
This lasagna uses Victoria Fine Foods’ new Avocado Marinara, made with – you guessed it – avocado oil! Victoria recently came out with this marinara sauce, made with antioxidant and omega rich avocado oil. If you didn’t know already, avocado oil provides essential fatty acids and unsaturated and Omega 6 fats, which are both essential nutrients needed when you have a vegetarian or vegan diet. It only made sense to use this new marinara in this vegetarian lasagna!
So, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I know, I know – it’s not exactly a significant holiday. I mean, I love Christmastime, don’t get me wrong, but there’s something about Halloween that has always got me. I think because I was a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan in my adolescence, that I’ve always had a fascination with demons, vampires — geez, I sound like SUCH a nerd.
Welp, guess I am a nerd- because I still have my Buffy DVD collection, and whenever I need a pick-me-up, it’s straight to Season 1.
I love the weather, I love the time of year, I love gummy worms in dirt and hot dog mummies – I love.it.all.
Unfortunately, my husband does not have the same love for Halloween as I do. His birthday is October 30th, so like someone born on Christmas or Christmas Eve, it’s kind of a bummer – every birthday had to be a theme party, I guess. SOUNDS LIKE MY DREAM.
Maybe we should swap birthdays.
Anyways, regardless of your feelings on Halloween, this vegetarian lasagna is sure to make your weekly dinner rotation – it saves well, is packed with nutrients, and comes together quickly.
