    Default What vegetable goes with Lasagna?

    Do any?

    I've always had lasagna pretty much by itself, or with some sort of
    garlic bread.

    But if you were to add a vegetable on the side of lasagna, what would it be?

    Plz don't say squash or zuccini though.

    Thx.

    Not strictly a vege, but grapes go with lasagne........ ezpecially when
    they are in the red wine form.

    Hi Jared,

    Broccoli seems to go well, to my taste. Italian (wide) green beans
    are a standard.

    broccoli... leftover and made into salad. Lots of vinegar, some good
    olive oil, lots of salt, some pepper, a little garlic and some minced
    red onion and optionally some sliced cherry tomatoes...tossed and let to
    sit for about 15 minutes. The quality of the oil and vinegar and
    seasoning on the generous side with salt are what make this, IMO.

    Definitely the above, and especially broccoli rabe sauteed with olive
    oil and garlic.

    Yep.

    Though not necessarily just a green salad. I like to have a leafy salad
    with some chopped up tomato, cucumber, mandarin, etc, etc in it. It's
    like a palate cleanser between mouthfulls of lasagne.

    The salad also goes great with pizza.

    A simple salad - lettuce, onion bits and olive oil, near room temp. Have
    grated cheese and a pepper mill nearby.

    Giardiniera confuses people shemp. If you were to use enough Chicago
    style giardiniera to consider it a side dish you'll be very sorry. If
    you use the pickled spring mix in white vinegar I think it would pair
    up poorly. I do use Chicago style giardiniera on beefs, pizza,
    lasagna, eggplant / chicken / veal parmesan and it's a perfect blend.

    But it's not a side dish, it's a condiment.

    I've looked at recipes for years to make my own but never been
    impressed enough to try one of them. Plus the fact that there's
    always at least 10 brands on the store shelves and at the deli counter
    so the motivation isn't there. An it's dirt cheap to buy. I do know
    someone who makes a fabulous product but I've never got him drunk
    enough to get the recipe.

    I always go with a green vegetable with pasta. You definitely do not want
    squash or any other heavy veggie. I like garlic buttered peas, green beans,
    brussel sprouts, lima beans, and even broccoli. I usually reserve broccoli
    for the evening we are having sea food. Just me. Make the vegetable
    colorful and not too filling to accompany the lasagna.

    Later,

    I would make a salad that has some crunch to it....romaine, cucs,
    tomatoes, sort of a Greek salad but no cheese....enough in the lasagne.
    Best wishes,
    Ellie
    FINALLY! Rain in SF....very much needed.

    I'm with you, only I'd dress the salad with a homemade extra-virgin
    olive oil & balsamic vinaigrette, add some celery and leave out the
    cheese because the lasagna needs something fresh light.

    And I never serve a vegetable side dish during the pasta course. A salad
    after the lasagna is the norm.

    You don't consider starchy peas or lima beans, all buttered up to be
    heavy?? I don't even think they compliment the meal.

    I think "heavy" and "light" are sometimes more perception or tradition
    than reality. My perception is that peas and lima beans aren't all that
    light, but my perception is also that they compliment the meal.

    I like spinach or swiss chard with lasagna, assuming that the lasagna
    doesn't already have spinach in it.
