- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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!
