  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
