Paleasagna – The Best No Pasta Lasagna

December 30, 2011

Just because I don’t eat pasta, which I have never really liked, doesn’t mean I don’t want some gooey, warm, comforting lasagna. I grew up disliking pasta, but loving lasagna. I could live on the sauce, rich and tomatoey.

One great thing about lasagna is that you can direct the outcome. But having a good base for a recipe can really makes your creation great.

When I stumbled upon this recipe for no-carb, no-pasta lasagna, I knew this base was exactly what I wanted for dinner. I gathered the ingredients and set out on a no-pasta lasagna journey to give this recipe a little Lori touch.

Not only is this Paleasagna absolutely delicious and comforting, it’s loaded with veggies and low on refined grains (or carbs). I added raw goat cheese to the top of mine (hello, look at the melty goodness!) but you can definitely skip this step. There is dairy in this recipe but if you’re looking for a dairy-free option, simply make your own cashew “cheese” sauce! Another healthy alternative that would be outrageously divine.

And on a completely side note, make this walnut “cheese” sauce! It’s soooooooooooo good.

*Dairy-free options:

Creamy Walnut “Cheese” Sauce

Thick Tofu Cheesy Sauce




You can use any ingredients with this dish, as no matter what veggies you put in place, it’ll be good. Thinly sliced eggplant would be delicious. I will need to make this again with a new mix of veggies.

What is your favorite comfort dish?

Pasta or no pasta? I’m just not, and never have been, a fan. I could live on just the sauce any day.

How many servings does this make – and do you have a macro breakdown?

Hi! I do not have a macro breakdown for this but I would guess the serving size would be about 10, depending on how hungry you are. 🙂 This recipe does make a lot, which I found to be perfect for leftovers. I hope this helps! Please do let me know if you get a good estimate for yourself.

Made this last night for friends and it was a hit! Used 1.5 pounds ground sirloin, 2 can succeed tomatoes, fresh garden herbs and added a layer of fresh sliced mushrooms. Oh and definitely brown meat first. So yummy!
