If you're leaving a honey-baked ham or a roasted turkey off of this year's Christmas dinner menu to accommodate vegetarian guests, that doesn't mean that your meal needs to be without its stellar main dish. Whether it's a vegetable lasagna, a savory soufflé, or a hearty pasta dish, we have plenty of delicious options that you can serve in place of a meat dish. And the best thing about featuring a vegetarian main at your Christmas table? You might save a couple bucks this year.
Vegetable Lasagna with Butternut Béchamel
For a lighter take on this classic, we substitute hearty butternut squash for butter, which becomes velvety and creamy when blended with garlic and milk. Our saucy lasagna packs more than 2 cups of vegetables into each slice, is overflowing with melty cheese, and has half the calories of the original.
