In the spirit of celebrating the holidays, no matter what yours looks like this year, we have asked Christa from @Christa.Maria to put together a dish that her family would serve up at the holiday table.
Discover this classic dish featuring pasta, tomato sauce, onions, cheese and more! Layers of cheesy goodness mix and mingle with The Very Good Burger to create an unforgettable family classic.
Plant-Based Lasagna with The Very Good Burger
- One package The Very Good Burger (4 burgers)
- 1/2 Small Onion
- 2 Cloves of Garlic
- 3 cups Molisana Tomato Sauce
- 9 Lasagna Noodles
- 2 cups Vegan Cheese
- Basil to Garnish (approx. 3-4 leaves)
First rip your Very Good Burgers into small pieces. Then sauté your onion and garlic in a medium-sized frying pan until they become slightly translucent. Add your Very Good Burger pieces into the pan. Fry until it becomes slightly brown, approximately 5-7 minutes.
Next add the tomato sauce of your choice to the meat. Continue to let that cook, stirring occasionally. This should take approximately 20-25 minutes.
In the meantime, cook your lasagna noodles according to the instructions on the box. It’s okay if the noodles aren’t cooked all the way because they will cook more later in the oven
Drain your pasta, and keep the noodles in a bowl of cold water. This ensures the noodles don’t stick together, and it makes handling the pasta easier (not hot)
Now that everything is cooked you can begin layering your lasagna. Start by putting a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of your tray (so the lasagna doesn’t burn). Then layer your lasagna however you like, but do not but any meat on the top layer. The top layer should be a noodle, then sauce, and lastly cheese. (You should use up all the meat).
Cook your lasagna in the oven for about 25 minutes, at 350 degrees. Once cooked, let cool before cutting into it.
Be sure to share your Plant-Based Lasagna with The Very Good Burger with us using #TheVeryGoodButchers and tagging @theverygoodbutchers.
