Ingredients

For the lasagna:

  • 12 whole grain lasagna noodles
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped (optional)
  • 8oz pkg sliced mushrooms
  • 12oz pkg frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed (optional)
  • 710 cups marinara sauce (2-25oz jars, I like mine saucy!)

For the tofu ricotta:

  • 214oz pkg extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
  • 10oz tub roasted garlic hummus (1 heaping cup)
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook just until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Once hot, add zucchini, mushrooms, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes or until softened. Add spinach and peas and sauté for another 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Place drained tofu in a large bowl. Crumble with hands. Add hummus, nutritional yeast, basil, salt, and garlic powder. Stir together with your hands until it’s semi-smooth and resembles ricotta.
  4. Place about 1 1/2 cups of marinara in the bottom of a 9x13in baking dish. Top with 4 noodles (3 lengthwise and 1 widthwise to cover the gap at the end). Next add half of the ricotta mixture and half of the vegetable mixture. Top with a heaping 1 1/2 cups or more of sauce. Repeat with more noodles, tofu mixture, and veggies. Then top with one last layer of noodles and another 1 1/2 cups or more of sauce; I went heavy on the sauce because I love sauce! Top with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
