Jump to Recipe
I thought it was summer already, well I was wrong. We had a few chilly days in between and I just wanted to curl up near the fireplace and wait for some casserole to cook up, like this warm saucy cheesy Lasagna.
The thing with Lasagnas is that they take some time with all the arrangement, but they come out great. They keep well, the recipes are flexible and are much easier if you have jarred or pre-made sauces. The thing that doesn’t work for me is the large serving size! Between the 2 of us, or just me during the week, it is difficult to finish it up. And if I have a large container of any food sitting in the fridge, it becomes a mental block against making something new, developing recipes or cooking otherwise. So I made this into a half batch! Don’t you like the smaller loaf of lasagna. Cute and perfect 🙂
I used a jar of pasta sauce that was there, some field roast coconut herb Chao cheese slices that melt so beautifully, greens, herb marinated mushrooms, herbs, tofu thyme ricotta and more herbs and layers and done! To make this soy-free use chickpea tofu or kite hill almond ricotta.
This is the basic Lasagna I generally use to build up over. Use whatever veggies, greens, sauces and vegan cheeses. Use more or less pasta sauce to preference. Use my cauliflower alfredo instead of vegan cheese layer.

This looks really great and I’m hoping to try it maybe for the holidays. The only thing is I don’t really like the flavor of thyme. What would be a good substitute for the tofu ricotta? Thank you for your wonderful recipes!

basil is another nice Italian flavour or parsley is more neutral , oregano would be excellent too

Delicious and easy to prepare p
Richa, this THE best lasagna ever and totally satisfies my lasagna cravings! Thank you so much! I’m wondering – can your mozzarella cheese you use in the vegan mushroom quesadillas (which are insane as well – going to put a review there, too!) be used here instead of the Chao cheese? If so, do you heat it up to thicken before baking the lasagna, or pour it on straight from the blender without heating up to thicken? Thank you for all you do!! 🙂
