Here is a delicious Vegan Lasagna recipe that uses my top rated Ultimate Vegan Bolognese Sauce for a savory meatless lasagna.
So, I was thinking, what is another way to use this delicious Ultimate Vegan Bolognese Sauce that everyone loves so much! With walnuts, mushrooms and soy protein, it has the right beef texture in a non-meat sauce as you can see in the photo below.
Well, how about using it in a healthy Vegan Lasagna recipe!
I call the Vegan Bolognese Sauce recipe a weekend recipe because it takes some time and has many ingredients, so this meatless Vegan Lasagna recipe is also a weekend recipe, since it is based on this sauce.
How to Make Vegan Lasagna
So, here is the process once you have made the sauce.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Spread ½ cup of the vegan bolognese sauce in an even layer to the bottom of a large 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
Add 4-5 vegan lasagna noodles in a slightly overlapped layer.
Spread ⅓ of the vegan ricotta on top of the noodles. Repeat layers two more times, beginning with ¾ cup of sauce, layering 4-5 more vegan noodles, following with a layer of ricotta.
On the top layer spread remaining vegan bolognese sauce.
Sprinkle the top layer with vegan mozzarella.
Cover tightly with foil. Bake for 1 hour, removing foil in last 3-4 minutes and broiling, if desired. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
