Easy Lasagna Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • Lemon Basil Cashew Cheeze (from Oh She Glows)
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 30 mins or overnight
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth or water (or more as needed)
  • 1.5 cups fresh basil leaves (lightly packed)
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast (gives the cheese flavour)
  • ¾-1 tsp kosher salt (or to taste) + freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • Tomato Sauce
  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1 package of mushrooms (any kind), sliced
  • 1 (28 oz) can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (28 oz) can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 small zucchini, diced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tsp dried basil (or 2 Tbsp fresh)
  • 2 tsp dried oregano (or 2 Tbsp fresh)
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried thyme (or 1 Tbsp fresh)
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary (or ½ Tbsp fresh)
  • 1 package oven ready lasagna noodles (gluten free or otherwise)
  1. Lemon Basil Cashew Cheeze
  2. Drain and rinse soaked cashews. With the food processor of high powered blender turned on, drop in your garlic cloves and process until chopped. Add in the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth, scraping down the bowl as needed.
  3. Sauce
  4. Combine the onion, garlic, and red pepper in a large pot and cook until the onion is translucent. Add in the mushrooms, zucchini, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, and spices. Bring to a simmer while you make the "cheese" mixture.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400 F. To put the lasagna together, spread 1 to 1.5 cups of the tomato sauce in the bottom of a baking dish. Add in a layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles, top with approximately 1 cup of tomato sauce (make sure the noodles all have some sauce on them), spread some of the "cheese" mixture, then start again with a noodle layer. Repeat until you 1) run out of room to stack or 2) run out of sauce!
  6. Bake (covered) in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes then remove the cover and broil for 5 minutes. It's a good idea to put the baking dish on a cookie sheet...that has saved me from cleaning up a mess on more than one occasion when sauce ended up boiling over the side of the dish. Let stand for 10-15 minutes once it's out of the oven, it makes it MUCH easier to cut and get onto a plate. Enjoy!
