Classic Vegetable Lasagna
Cookbook * The Angelica Home Kitchen
Recipe * Classic Vegetable Lasagna
Yumm or Yuck? * Yumm
I just returned from San Francisco where everyone speaks veg and the food tastes so good I almost want to take up residence...but, I would miss Seattle's weather. So, you want to know about lasagna...its loaded with fresh kale or green of choice, olives, mushrooms, and topped with a tofu ricotta. For those who can plan ahead more than a few days, assemble and freeze this baby for up to a month. Overall the flavor combo can't be beat, but the ricotta seemed too watered down and I would probably try a different ricotta recipe next time. I used my own tomato sauce so can't vouch for the suggested No-Mato Sauce. Beyond flavor, this is an eye-catching dish that holds up well for serving and its very healthy lookin'. If you are ever in NYC, give Angelica a try, its down a tiny one-way in a colorful neighborhood.
