Sample Recipe:


Tantalizing Pasta Free Lasagna 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 4 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 Large zucchini
  • 2 pounds firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained


  1. With a potato peeler, slice zucchini into long strips. Place in a bowl and salt generously, tossing once or twice to coat well. Lay strips on paper towels on your work surface. Set aside 1 hour.
  2. Make the sauce: In a large, heavy saucepan, over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Place the onions in the saucepan and sauté them until they are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic; cook 5 minutes more.
  3. Place the tomatoes, tomato paste, basil and parsley in the saucepan. Stir well, turn the heat to low and let the sauce simmer covered for 1 hour. Add the salt and pepper.
  4. While the sauce is cooking bring a large kettle of salted water to a boil. Boil the lasagna noodles for 9 minutes, then drain and rinse well.
  5. Preheat the oven to Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Place the tofu blocks in a large bowl. Add the garlic, basil, and parsley. Add the salt and pepper, and mash all the ingredients together by squeezing pieces of tofu through your fingers. Mix well.
  7. Blot any moisture off of zucchini strips with paper towel.
  8. Assemble the lasagna: Spread 1 cup of the tomato sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch casserole pan. Arrange a single layer of zucchini strips, sprinkle one-third of the tofu mixture over the noodles. Distribute the spinach evenly over the tofu. Next, ladle 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce over the tofu, and top it with another layer of the noodles. Then sprinkle another 1/3 of the tofu mixture over the zucchini strips, top the tofu with 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce, and place a final layer of zucchini strips over the tomato sauce. Finally, top the zucchini strips with the final 1/3 of the tofu, and spread the remaining tomato sauce over everything.
  9. Cover the pan with foil and bake the lasagna for about 45 min. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
