Test Kitchen Tip

Shredded provolone is like mozzarella in texture, but with fuller flavor. To make this vegan-friendly, sub with a plant-based Italian-blend or mozzarella.


Sauté minced onion, 1 Tbsp. minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and pepper flakes in 1 Tbsp. oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until onion softens, 3 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce; simmer marinara 10 minutes.

Sauté zucchini, mushrooms, diced onions, carrots, bell peppers, fennel bulb, and remaining 1 Tbsp. minced garlic in 2 Tbsp. oil in a sauté pan over medium heat until softened, about 10 minutes.

Add tofu, 3 garlic cloves, zest, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and remaining 2 Tbsp. oil to a food processor; process until smooth and creamy, scraping sides as needed. Add spinach; pulse to combine. Season tofu ricotta with salt and black pepper.

Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

Line two baking sheets with foil; coat with nonstick spray.

Cook lasagna sheets in a pot of boiling salted water until pliable, 2 minutes; transfer to prepared baking sheets.

Spread ¾ cup marinara on bottom of prepared dish; top with three lasagna sheets, ¾ cup tofu ricotta, 1 cup marinara, one-fourth vegetable filling, and ¾ cup provolone. Repeat layering with lasagna sheets, tofu ricotta, marinara, vegetable filling, and provolone; cover lasagna.

Bake lasagna, covered, 25 minutes; uncover, sprinkle with remaining provolone and Parmesan, then continue baking until golden and bubbly 2025 minutes more. Let lasagna rest 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
