Lazy Lasagna
If the word lasagna brings hard labor and never-gonna-happen to mind, think again. This veggie lasagna is quick to construct and doesn’t require a knife or cutting board. Build it and toss it in the oven an hour and a half before dinner to avoid the 6:00 PM prep frenzy. And, because a knife isn’t required, this recipe is great one to make with kids. Oh, and it’s high in fiber, cholesterol-free, and low in saturated fat. What are you waiting for?

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a large bowl, crumble tofu and stir in spinach, cream cheese, garlic, and salt.
  3. In the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, evenly spread half the 28-oz can of tomato sauce, and then evenly layer with about 5 lasagna noodles (1 of which will probably need to be broken into 2 halves to fit.
  4. Spread half the spinach tofu mixture evenly over the lasagna noodles, and cover the spinach tofu mixture with another layer of about 5 lasagna noodles.
  5. Pour half the jar of marinara sauce evenly over lasagna noodles, and then top that layer of sauce with another layer of noodles (about 5).
  6. Spread the other half the spinach tofu mixture evenly over lasagna noodles, and cover with a final layer of lasagna noodles.
  7. Top final layer of noodles with the remaining tomato sauce and marinara sauce, spread evenly over top.
  8. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Stick a knife through the center of the lasagna to make sure the noodles are completely cooked. Let cool for 10 minutes, covered, before serving.
  9. Store leftover lasagna in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in individual containers in the freezer for up to 2 months.
