You know when you want a Lasagna or a pasta bake but not all the work with it, and then you also want a sandwich. Well add everything into a sandwich. The sauces, fillings, veggies and eat away. With the Lasagna, there is also always this surprise element of how it will turn out. You don't always know the the seasoning and salt of the dish until it is done. and then there is a long wait to bake and then cool before eating as well. So I say make Lasgna grilled sammies.
Remember this nut-free Cauliflower alfredo sauce in the Spinach Artichoke Alfredo Lasagna. I used that same alfredo and lentil veggie pasta sauce to make this sloppy grilled sammie. Add your favorite vegan cheese shreds for a stickier sandwich.
The sauces and the fillings are gluten, soy and nut-free. Use gluten-free bread to make gf
