Many, MANY years ago when we were just out of college and living in Portland, OR (our “out West” adventure!), we ordered a White Lentil Lasagna for lunch at Bread and Ink Cafe. My husband still remembers that meal, so here I am 17 years later trying to recreate it! (We are clearly into food if that wasn’t already obvious, haha).
After a couple of attempts, my husband – and the kids too – have given this Creamy Lentil Lasagna two thumbs up, and I’m excited to share it with you today. My 4th grader even ate the leftovers for breakfast if that tells you anything. This dish is a hearty vegetarian meal I think any meat lover would embrace. Let me know what you think in the comments!

I baked this recipe in my new Ceramcor Ovenex Bakeware because have you seen the pictures going around the internet that show how glass bakeware can explode? So scary, but thankfully Ceramcor is offering us a great solution. Not only is it safer to use in the oven, but I think their colorful baking dishes are more attractive than the regular clear glass variety. Wouldn’t this red one be perfect for Christmas? They have other colors too.
And I found that this dish is a little wider at the bottom than my traditional bakeware, which gave me more room for my lasagna. Normally, it seems as though I can’t fit the lasagna noodles side-by-side without them having to overlap in my other baking dishes. First world problems, I know. Anyway, check out the different sets they have available – perfect for holiday gifts and entertaining.
