Tuna Veggie Alfredo Lasagna
- Ready In:
- 1hr 35mins
- 6 no-boil lasagna noodles (I like Barilla)
- 1 (16 ounce) jar roasted garlic alfredo sauce (such as Bertoli)
- 10 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup diced fresh zucchini
- 1 cup sliced green onion (include green parts)
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 (6 ounce) packet albacore tuna (not a 6 oz. can, you want 6 oz. of tuna, not 6 oz. of tuna and water)
- 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 9 slices provolone cheese
- 2 -3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (I use a lot)
- 1⁄3 cup good white wine
- Mix together alfredo sauce and wine.
- Briefly stir-saute all prepared vegetables in olive oil, except spinach, about two minutes over medium heat.
- In a large oiled loaf pan, pour 1/2 cup alfredo sauce mix.
- Top with two uncooked lasagna sheets, breaking the second to fit any uncovered sauce.
- Top with 1/3 tuna, 1/3 vegetables (pull spinach into small pieces), and 1//3 of each cheese.
- Pour 1/3 of remaining sauce on top.
- Repeat layers twice more, reserving the last 1/3 of cheeses for later.
- (You'll end with sauce).
- Cover the pan tightly with foil.
- Bake at 375 for 50 minutes, remove foil, top with remaining cheeses, reduce heat to 350, and bake for another 20 minutes, until top cheese is bubbling and starting to brown.
- Remove from oven and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
- (15 minutes is better if you can stand it!).
- Slice crosswise in about two inches slabs and serve with your favorite green salad and good chewy bread.
- Be warned, this is very rich, but it's hard to stop eating.
- NOTE: Please try to use the albacore tuna in the foil pouch, if at all possible.
- The taste is noticably better than any canned albacore I've tried.

I tried this recipe, and even my husband (a die-hard veggie hater) ate, and liked it. I have been looking for years for a good alfredo lasagna, and I have definitely found it! I did make some changes - I don't like tuna, so I threw some small chunks of chicken in instead, and also added squash. This recipe is pretty rich, but it has enough flavors that nothing comes off too strong - it blends together perfectly. Thanks to Vina for an awesome recipe!!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I live in Minnesota, and actually like the winter more than summer! (Must have Siberian ancestors!) The main focus of my life is, and always has been, children. I've spent the majority of my life either educating myself about children, having and raising children, or working with children. I presently work in an elementary school with children that have emotional/behavioral difficulties, and have three daughters of my own. I also have four grandsons (one an extra gift that came when my daughter very wisely married his dad) and will become Grandma to the the 5th baby in June. This one a little girl! I can not wait!! I received so much joy being a mother that finding that much joy, and more, in being 'Grandma' has taken me by surprise. They are all the best gifts ever given to me. Whatever free time I have is spent with my nose in a book, surfing the web for new recipes, or with my wonderful friends, both online and "in person".
