Lasagna Zucchini Boats Why Vegetarian Lasagna?

Vegetarian lasagnas are really simple to make – just be sure to head to the store to pick up the necessary ingredients ahead of time. Most of these products are perishable which means odds are you won’t have what you need in a pantry. Stuffed lasagna turns out really gooey and delicious – so be prepared with lots of napkins too. LOL!!

This Stuffed Spinach Lasagna Zucchini Boat recipe gets the kids super excited right from the start – they even want to help construct them!! Fantastic! I always welcome an extra set of hands in the kitchen.
