Veggie, Ham & Cheese Lasagna with White Sauce

This is a great way to use up that leftover holiday ham! But you can substitute whatever you like, add some vegetables & you have a great non-traditional lasagna. This post contains affiliate links. Should you make a purchase using a link, we may earn a small commission at no cost to you.

Ingredients
  

  • 9 oven ready lasagna noodles (more if using a larger pan)
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups finely chopped vegetables (I used onions, broccoli & mushrooms this time)
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 2 cups finely chopped ham (food processor works great)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350° & grease a 9"x12" pan or what size you have closest to that
  • If you don't have oven ready lasagna noodles, then cook noodles first & set aside.
  • Melt butter in large skillet, add vegetables & stir until tender
  • Stir in flour, then add milk, stirring until thickened
  • Add cottage cheese & 1 cup of the monterey jack cheese & stir until melted
  • Stir in ham & remove from heat
  • Place 3 noodles (or more) to cover bottom of pan, add layer of meat sauce & repeat for 2 more layers
  • Sprinkle remaining monterey jack cheese on top & cover pan with foil
  • Bake on middle rack of oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil & continue baking until light golden brown & noodles are tender, up to an additional 10 minutes

Notes

I love this recipe because it's easy to change!  Use whatever meat you have on hand (I'm trying seafood next), & whatever vegetables you have on hand or works best with your meat.  Works great as just a veggie lasagna as well.  Please share your favorite flavor combination!
