Veggie and Noodle Layers:

  • Wilted Spinach: 16 oz fresh spinach sautéed with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Roasted Sweet Potato: 2-3 medium sweet potatoes cut into thin disks baked with olive oil, salt and pepper at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until tender.
  • Lasagna Noodles: Cook ahead of time unless using the no boil noodles.

Sauce Layers:

  • Red Sauce: Any basic tomato sauce is great! Feel free to spice it up or add in more flavor/texture (onion, garlic, mushrooms, lentils, etc.) if preferred!
  • White Sauce (Vegan Bechamel): Start by making a rue with vegan butter or oil and flour then slowly add your non-dairy milk (plain almond milk is my preference) until you get the desired quantity and texture. Add salt and pepper at the end! Option to add nutritional yeast.
  • Cashew Cheese Sauce: Soak 2 cups of cashews in boiling water for about 10 minutes, then drain and rinse. Blend with water, ½ tsp onion powder, 1.5 tbsp miso, and 4 tbsp nutritional yeast until smooth but thick.


  1. With all these ingredients layer how you want!
    • Example: Red, Noodles, Cheese, Sweet Potatoes, Red, Noodles, White, Spinach, White, Noodles, Red, Sweet Potatoes, Cheese, Noodles, Red, top with Cheese!
    • Any layering will work!
  2. With cooked noodles: Bake at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes or until cheese sauce starts to brown.
  3. With no boil noodles: refer to noodle package and cover with foil while baking to keep the steam in and avoid burning the cheese sauce.
  4. Once baked allow to cool for 10-15 minutes to set the sauces then enjoy or freeze individual portions!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use more sauce with no boil noodles so they have enough liquid to absorb.
  • Taste each component along the way to check the seasoning level.
  • Other Sauce Options (in place of tomato):
    • Vegan Pesto: Basil, Olive Oil, Toasted Pine Nuts, Nutritional Yeast, Salt, Pepper, Lemon Juice. Blended until smooth and combined!
    • Pumpkin: 2 Cans of pumpkin thinned with water then spiced up with any preferred seasoning (salt, pepper, sage, rosemary, basil, oregano, garlic, etc.)!
