Eggplant & Zucchini Lasagna Bake {gf, lf}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Time to elevate your family Sunday dinner! I've made this lasagna a few times now, and my family loves it. They're big cheese and meat people, but they loved the flavor in this dish. This recipe is gluten free and lactose free, but you can sub a entirely dairy free cheese to make it completely vegan. I love this recipe because it's loaded with veggies, but still has some gluten free lasagna mixed in for a goof balance. I promise this won't fall short on flavor!
