I love Stouffer’s Lasagna but had never tried a Vegetable Lasagna. Actually I never would have purchased a vegetable lasagna if I hadn’t tried one first. You can’t have lasagna without meat can you? My sister in law had made a vegetable lasagna for my family one time after I had surgery. When I asked her for the recipe, she confessed that it was a Stouffers Vegetable Lasagna.

Stouffers Vegetable Lasagna is made with freshly made pasta that is layered with carrots, spinach, broccoli and onions with a Parmesan and Romano cheese sauce. If I would have read the ingredients before trying it, I would have thought I wouldn’t like it because I am not a huge spinach fan. What really surprised me was that my family liked it as they normally will not touch spinach. There are no preservatives in this lasagna.
I have only seen the Vegetable Lasagna in two different sizes. There is the 96 ounce size which servers 12 and the individual serving size. I have only purchased the party size.
Stouffer's Lasagna is easy to make but it does take a long time to cook. You need to keep the lasagna frozen until you are ready to cook it. Heat your oven to 400 and pull the tab and remove the tray from the box and remove the aluminum foil lid. Bend the lid slightly and put it back on. Place a baking sheet under the tray and place in the oven. You will need to cook for one hour and fifty minutes. If the lasagna is thawed you will cook it for sixty minutes. Remove the lid for the last five minutes of cooking.

The one thing that really surprised me with this Vegetable Lasagna is that it has more calories than Stouffer's Meat Lasagna. It is also higher in sodium and carbohydrates. Personally I would think a vegetable lasagna would be better for you than a meat lasagna but as far as the numbers show that is not the case.
I have never made homemade vegetable lasagna nor have I ever tried another brand of frozen vegetable lasagna so I really don’t have anything to compare it too. I do like the taste of the Vegetable Lasagna. It is very creamy and cheesy.
I like to purchase the larger serving of Vegetable Lasagna because it feeds my whole family for dinner and there are always plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.
Stouffer's Lasagna can be found at most grocery stores in the frozen food aisle. I purchase my vegetable lasagna at BJ’s because they are cheaper there. I can get the party size for $8.99. They run a few dollars more at the grocery store.
Because of the high calorie, sodium and carb count, we normally only eat the Vegetable Lasagna about once a year but we do enjoy it when we have it. To eat it occasionally I’m sure it won’t hurt you but I certainly wouldn’t eat it once a week.
My family and I like Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna and would recommend it to others. It is an easy dinner to make when you don’t feel like cooking.
