Vegetarian Lasagna (with Vegan Options)

I love this Vegetarian Lasagna recipe, not only for it’s healthy yumminess, but also for it’s versatility.  It can easily be made vegan (you will see VEGAN options in parentheses).  You can also substitute vegetables: yellow squash for zucchini, spinach for kale…you get the idea.  Get creative!

If you are making homemade sauce, it’s a good idea to make it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until ready to use.  The Fresh Tomato Sauce recipe I use takes a couple of hours start to finish, and it’s just easier to do it ahead of time.
