3 medium yellow squash, chopped
3 cups broccoli florets, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pound firm tofu
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup raw tahini (pureed sesame seeds)
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 3/4 cups pasta sauce, no or low salt, divided

4.In a blender, blend the other half of the vegetables with 1 cup of the pasta sauce, tomato sauce, oregano, Italian seasoning, and scallions to make a thick veggie paste. Reserve the remainder of the pasta sauce. Spread 1/8 cup of the blended sauce in the bottom of a large glass baking dish.
5.Stir the roasted vegetables into the rest of the blended sauce.
6.In the baking pan, make 3 layers starting with four cooked lasagna noodles then spreading 1/3 of the tofu mixture on top of the noodles, 1/3 of the sauce w/roasted veggies, and 4 cups fresh spinach leaves. Repeat for another layer, then put the last layer of noodles on top with remaining tofu mixture and sauce w/roasted veggies.
7. Carefully spread the reserved 3/4 cup pasta sauce over the top and sprinkle with shredded soy cheese.
8. Cover the top of the pan with non-stick foil, and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Note: When vegetables are done roasting, remove from oven and turn temperature down to 350 degrees.

    I clicked on this wondering if you knew my friends the Fuhrmarks, but then I remembered the diet doctor Joel Fuhrmark...need to find out if he's related to my friends. In any case, the lasagna sounds yummy. I'd need to make it early enough to cool it, cut it into pieces and freeze it, because my DS wouldn't eat it, and it is just too much for three people! That's why I get vegetarian lasagnas at a restaurant!
