Super cheesy very un-vegan lasagna


This was the omni option at my husband's birthday dinner. Lasagna is his absolute very favorite dish. Of course, his favorite is the one his mom makes. And, to be honest, it's really good! This version is a white lasagna with lots of veggies thrown in. However, I doubt the veggies redeem the overall cheesy cholesterol-laden nature of this dish! I assure you it as at most a once-per-year undertaking. I didn't use a recipe, so I'll just give you an idea of what it contained and post a picture as well.

Lasagna noodles, uncooked
2 jars (16 ounce) prepared Alfredo sauce
4 cups vegetarian vegetable broth
cremini mushrooms, washed and sliced
frozen spinach, thawed
onion, diced
artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
fresh garlic, peeled, crushed, and diced
fresh basil, washed and minced
olive oil to saute veggies in
small curd cottage cheese or low fat ricotta
Italian blend cheese, shredded

Mix the Alfredo with the vegetable broth. Then, layer sauce, cottage cheese/ricotta, veggies, noodles until you're at the top of your casserole dish. Then, top with sauce, cheese, and fresh basil
