Baby Bella Mushroom and Zucchini Lasagna



serves 4 (using a 4½” x 8½” x 3″ loaf pan)(can use a 9×9)

6 lasagna noodles, cut in half , width wise
1 zucchini, sliced length-wise (1/4 inch thick)
1 cup baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/4-1/2 cups Bertolli Tomato and Basil sauce
1 tsp Italian seasonings
1/2 garlic powder
12 ounce Mori-Nu firm tofu, pressed
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp water
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup Daiya vegan cheese crumbles


Preheat oven to 425 degree Fahrenheit.

Press tofu before starting assembling lasagna. Tofu must be pressed 45 minutes to an hour long.

Crumble tofu in a small bowl, making sure there are no big chunks. Add nutritional yeast, parsley flakes, minced garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and water. mix well and set aside.

Heat water for lasagna in a deep sauce pan. Split noodles beforehand and cook according to packaged directions.

Meanwhile, slice zucchini and mushrooms. These veggies create a lot of moisture, so I decided to keep the tofu ricotta drier. Saute’ sliced mushrooms in 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add garlic powder and Italian seasonings and cook for 5 minutes. Do not overcook.

Start layering process.

1st layer: 1 1/2 Tbsp sauce
2nd layer: 2 half noodles and a 1/4
3rd layer: 2 Tbsp tofu ricotta
4th layer: 4 zucchini slices
5th layer: 1/4 cup mushrooms

Repeat process and end with noodles, sauce and 1/2 cup Daiya vegan cheese crumbles.

Place loaf pan on cookie sheet to prevent from spilling in oven. Cook for 20 minutes and remove from oven.

Let lasagna rest for 10-15 minutes and serve.

    This looks and sounds absolutely fantastic; I will have to add this to my collection of vegetarian lasagna recipes.

    That lasagna looks amazing! I think my kids will have no problem eating veggies if it is in their favorite dish lasagna. I was able to make them eat spinach and mushroom through my lasagna recipes, so I was hoping they’ll enjoy zucchini lasagna as well.
