  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add beef; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, chopped tomatoes, oregano, and salt. Simmer sauce until flavors combine, about 10 minutes.
  3. Spread 1/4 of the sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with a 1/3 of the quinoa. Drop spoonfuls of ricotta on top of quinoa, and sprinkle 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese on top. Repeat layers twice more, ending with sauce and Parmesan cheese on top.
  4. Bake lasagna in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbly and top is golden, about 35 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute vegetarian beef crumbles for the ground beef if desired.
  • Use 4 chopped Roma tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes if preferred.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Family liked it. First time using quinoa; 3 cups make a lot. Might use a leaner beef next time, grease level seemed high. Used canned diced tomatoes. This will easily feed a family of 4 or 5...

I enjoyed this recipe! It felt good to be able to eat a version of lasagne when in trying to stay away from pasta!

The idea is great. I found it trying to use up 2.5 c cooked red quinoa. I did make some subs based on what I had in the house 2 cans diced tomato's 14.5 ounce, but no sauce (I was out). I cup of...
