Tofu Pumpkin Spinach Lasagna




I did not have any squash, so I modified  this recipe  to come up with the following recipe.  This was SOOOO good...I just wanted to keep on eating it !!!!





Ingredients:
1 box lasagna noodles
1 and 1/2 jars low sodium spaghetti sauce (about 40 ounces)
--------
1 package silken tofu (I use  Morinu Soft Silken Tofu )
1/4 cup almond milk
--------
1 can pumpkin puree
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast Flakes (I use NOW Foods)
1 - 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well


Directions:
Place tofu and almond milk in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. 

Pour into a bowl and add in all the other ingredients (EXCEPT lasagna noodles and spaghetti sauce).   Stir until well combined. 

To assemble, in a 9x13 lasagna pan, spread a thin layer of spaghetti sauce, then a layer of noodles, then a layer of the tofu filling.  Continue in the same order.  Finish with a layer of noodles topped with the spaghetti sauce.  

If using lasagna noodles that are not pre-cooked, let the assembled lasagna sit for at least 30 minutes to allow time for the noodles to soften.

Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.

    2. hehe yeah it is one of those things that I don't make very often either but when I do I absolutely LOVE them!
      I think its a time thing for me, I feel like I need to set aside a good hour and a half to make a good one and I usually thing about dinner half hour before it needs to be served lol ;-)
      I used to be so good with meal planning but have gotten out of that habit lately - need to get back into it I think!!!!! xxx

    3. Hey Sandy !!! You are right - with lasagna you need to plan ahead !!! Lots of times I make it one night and cook it and eat it the next night (because I don't allow myself enough time the 1st night !!). But like you said...whenever I make it, i do LOVE it !!!! - Denise XXXX
