Boy, this is good. Had to use oyster mushrooms, they were only ones I had available.I also added Daiya Mozzarella shreds. Excellent flavor. Delish......I have made this many times. Everyone likes it, and some say they like it better than regular lasagna. I have also added spinach too.

This is a vegan's dream come true... Great of the best...everything about it was the "tofu ricotta" and the cashew "cheese"...funny, I hadn't even read the other review first but I too made a double batch of the nut cheese and pour it on top at the end...I also added a bit of green- in my case chopped kale sauteed with garlic and mixed in with the other veggies... made Spaghetti Sauce as the tomato sauce...truly LOVED this winner LASAGNA...made playing "New kids on the Block" - thanks Caroline G!! :)

This lasagna was sooo good!I made my own sauce,added spinach to each layer,and sprinkled some cajun seasoning on it instead of using salt. I also used oregano instead of basil because I was out of basil. The last thing I did was make some extra "cheese" sauce to pour on top of the lasagna before baking. It gave a wonderful aroma while baking-my house smelled like a restaurant.This lasagna was so delicious that my husband and I almost ate the whole pan!! I call this guilt-free lasagna.Try it.
