This caprese salad inspired lasagna is so delicious. If you’re a cheese lover then you’ll love this, because this is a meatless lasagna. This is really just a pesto lasagna. The star of this dish, in my opinion, is the pesto alfredo sauce. It’s so rich and has the perfect amount of pesto without being too overpowering.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Lasagna Noodles:

I used a box of oven-ready lasagna noodles.

Frozen Chopped Spinach:

I used two bags of frozen chopped spinach. I used a bag for each layer. The spinach just fluffs up the lasagna a bit since there’s no meat in it.

Tomatoes:

I used about 4-5 large tomatoes and thinly sliced them.

Ricotta Cheese:

I used a 16 ounce tub of ricotta. I halved it for my two major layers. I just dolloped it on the pasta. It’ll melts and spread.

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese:

I used a lot of mozzarella for the recipe. Two bags would work fine. You can’t have too much.

Seasoning:

I used salt pepper, Italian seasonings. I just put a little dash of each between my layers.

Fresh Basil:

I topped my lasagna before I baked it with some fresh basil. This is optional.

Pesto Alfredo Sauce:

Yum. You’ll need two tablespoons of pesto sauce. I used the storebought kind that comes in a jar. About 3 tablespoons of butter. Two cups of heavy cream and a cup and a half of shredded parmesan cheese. I added salt pepper and sugar to make the flavor perfect. I could drink this sauce….
