Comments on this Recipe

I have been making this lasagna since it was first published in your magazine. It is flexible when it comes to what vegetables you can put in it, just keep it to 3-4 cups cooked vegetables. Making it tonight with broccoli and mushrooms. Making it was my introduction to no boil lasagna noodles. They are a great invention, since I think working with cooked lasagna noodles is probably like wrestling an octopus. I usually add garlic to the tofu, and Italian spices to the sauce. This is a great, basic recipe for both adults and kids.
