Lasagna is a terrific meal, but do you know what to serve with lasagna besides salad? Here are 25 easy side dishes to serve with lasagna!
Lasagna is a classic Italian dish that has become one of the most-loved comfort foods around the world. With layers upon layers of pasta, rich melted cheese, and creamy tomato sauce goodness, the flavors of lasagna come together for a savory melt-in-your-mouth experience. There’s no wonder why this scrumptious casserole dish is such a crowd-pleaser.
The most basic lasagna is made with wide strips of boiled pasta layered with tomato sauce and melted cheese and baked in the oven to perfection. But you can also layer it with vegetables of your liking such as zucchini, red bell pepper, carrots, spinach, and more. As for the cheese, lasagna would not be complete without ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and sometimes parmesan cheese. Some fresh basil is always nice, too!
Because of its versatility, lasagna is a crowd favorite and is often present at Thanksgiving and other holiday dinners. It’s also an easy weeknight dinner because it’s filling, easy to assemble, and keeps well. Any leftover lasagna will definitely still be delicious and it’s easy to reheat.
While lasagna is definitely filling enough to be a meal of its own, there are many sides that can be served with lasagna. Knowing what to serve with lasagna will help transform your simple dinner into a well-rounded feast. While a classic wedge salad, arugula salad, caesar salad, or antipasto platter are usually the most common pairings, we’re rounding up our favorite delicious side dishes sans salad! Enjoy.
