Veggie Alfredo Casserole



  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup spinach

Pasta and Sauce:

  • 8 oz whole wheat pasta
  • 2 cups Alfredo sauce (choose low-fat for a healthier option)


  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Optional Add-Ons:

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes for a little kick
  • Fresh basil or parsley for garnish

Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions

1. Prepare the Vegetables:

  • Slice and Dice: Start by washing and slicing the broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, and spinach.
  • Sauté: Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, and mushrooms. Sauté until they are tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the spinach last, stirring until it wilts.

2. Cook the Pasta:

  • Boil: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the whole wheat pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set it aside.

3. Assemble the Casserole:

  • Mix: In a large mixing bowl, combine the sautéed vegetables, cooked pasta, and Alfredo sauce. Mix well to ensure everything is evenly coated.
  • Layer: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Spread half of the mixture in a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over the first layer. Add the remaining pasta mixture on top and finish with the rest of the cheese.

4. Bake:

  • Bake: Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.

Tips for a Healthier Option

  • Whole Wheat Pasta: Opt for whole wheat pasta to add more fiber and nutrients to your dish.
  • Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce: Choose a low-fat or light Alfredo sauce to reduce the calorie content without sacrificing flavor.
  • Add More Greens: Increase the amount of spinach or add other leafy greens like kale for an extra nutrient boost.

Serving Suggestions and Pairing Ideas

  • Side Salad: Pair your Veggie Alfredo Casserole with a fresh garden salad for a balanced meal.
  • Garlic Bread: Serve with a side of garlic bread for a comforting and satisfying dinner.
  • Wine Pairing: A glass of crisp white wine, like Sauvignon Blanc, complements the creamy Alfredo sauce perfectly.
