Tips for Selecting Side Dishes

When you’re deciding what side dishes to pair with lasagna, first consider what type of lasagna you’re planning to serve. For example, a lighter, vegetable lasagna may pair best with bread and a cheesy side dish. A creamy, alfredo style lasagna might be best paired with a simple salad and a roasted vegetable, to balance out the heaviness of the lasagna. A traditional meat-based lasagna might be best with a variety of roasted vegetables. Ultimately, it’s up to you! You can easily mix and match these recipes, depending on what you’re craving!

Be aware of how much oven space you have. If you have a small oven, you may not want to choose a roasted vegetable dish, as it will compete for space when cooking your lasagna. Even if you do have a larger oven, cooking other dishes with a lasagna may impact the cooking time.

If you’re serving dinner for a crowd, you may want to plan side dishes that can be made ahead of time, such as breadsticks and a chopped salad. This makes it easy to focus your time on hosting, rather than prepping a last-minute dish.

I’ve divided this list up into three categories: Salads, Breads, & Vegetable Sides. Enjoy!
