Lasagna, deliciosa!

This is a fantastic winter dish, but I must warn you, it is difficult to have only one portion...

A box of lasagna pasta (I prefer Whole Wheat)
One box of extra firm tofu
mashrooms (1 container as per the supermarket)
1 onion
1 tomato sauce for pasta of your preference (Newman's own is good)
Spieces to your taste, I like oregano and fresh rosemary

First, the most amazing secret that I learned from the movie adorable movie Mostly Martha and makes me hungry just to think about it, heat the oil and drop the fresh rosemary on it... nice!

I do this in two separate pans, one will be used to saute the onions, the other one to saute the mashrooms.

As per the mashrooms, I leanred this from the other adorable movie "Julie and Julia", make sure the mashrooms have enough room in between each other... oh yes!

I use half the tofu, and put it in the blender, then add the mashrooms (once they are sort of golden), and the sautee onions.  I also add salt, pepper and oregano at this point. Then blend.... hmmmm

Boil the pasta as per package instructions, be careful with the whole wheat ones, you may need to leave them a few minutes longer as I have found out.
Then layer and put the paste in the middle

Top with Tomato Pasta Sauce  (main top picture)

Bake at low temperature (no more than 300) mostly to dry a little, and enjoy!


  1. I had just watched Julia & Julie...your blog reminds me of it...thoroughly enjoyable, even if the dishes are vegetarian :-)

    Thanks for this vegetable lasagna recipe, I had been meaning to make one for some time now. Can't wait for your next recipe!

  2. Thank you Melanie! I also loved Julia and Julie, and for my next recipe I have an argentinean dessert that I loooooove... hope you will enjoy it too
