4 Tasty Spring Lasagna Recipes
Don’t get us wrong: we’re huge fans of lasagna at Pierino. Still, it’s one of those foods that just seems better suited to cold weather. As it gets warmer and we break out our rain jackets, we typically scour our recipe books for lighter meals. This year, we decided to switch things up and dig around for some lasagna recipes tailored to the season.
If you’re looking for a lasagna fix suited to warmer, rainy days, try one of these recipes!
- Sweet pea and artichoke lasagna. Nothing says springtime like fresh, lightly sauteed recipes with pasta. Better yet, artichokes are something of a superfood: they’re packed with antioxidants, fiber, and a variety of other nutrients. Throw in some ricotta cheese and a light, creamy sauce and you have a perfect lasagna for a spring dinner. Snag the recipe here!
- “The works” lasagna primavera. If you’re looking to take things up a notch, there are plenty of other veggies that go great with a lighter lasagna — think asparagus, fava beans, and tomato. If it fits your fancy, you can offset the veggies with some sprinkled bacon. The recipe we found uses a Béchamel sauce, which originated in Italy but is now a staple of French cuisine. Again, a lighter sauce is key to making a dish fit for warmer weather. For a detailed recipe for making this type of lasagna, click here.
- Lasagna primavera with garlic chicken. Another way to make a lighter dish is to swap out the usual beef with chicken. Did you know that chicken is healthier for your heart than beef as well? A healthy dose of garlic only makes this lasagna even more savory. Of course, the chicken is complimented well by a full host of veggies — zucchini, peas, and squash. Yum!
- Vegetable lasagna with a mint and lemon sauce. Feeling more adventurous? Experimenting with different sauces is a great way to bring new life to the same old host of veggies and meats. And for our money, we bet you’ve never had a lasagna with a sauce quite like this! The recipe is anchored by asparagus, zucchini, edamame, leeks, and peas. Try it for yourself this season.
If you’re looking for a wine to go with these pastas, grab a light-bodied white wine. That’ll match well with the vegetables and light sauces.
