This delicious recipe for a lasagna dip presented by Elettra Wiedemann and Jackie Aplers is the perfect way to celebrate National Lasagna Day. This unique recipe is a non-traditional dish that transforms a classic lasagna dinner into a playful appetizer.

This recipe combines one cup of ricotta cheese with a quarter cup of spaghetti sauce, half a cup of cream cheese and a dash of Italian seasoning into a baking pan. The next layer uses sliced mushrooms, spinach and basil topped with more spaghetti sauce. Next, add a layer of mozzarella cheese and cover that with Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. This dish is baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

When the cheese is all melted, the lasagna appetizer can be served with fresh veggies like celery, chips, or crostini. To celebrate National Lasagna Day, this meatless dish is a creative way to indulge.
