1. Mix together the tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt oregano, basil, onion powder and water to make the sauce. Simmer for fifteen minutes.

2. Mix together tofu, lemon juice, salt, basil and onion powder to make the filling, put in a separate bowl.

3. Cook the noodles in salted boiling water.

4. Spray the lasagna pan and layer as follows: Sauce, 4 noodles, 1/3 of filling, sliced cheese. Repeat two times. End with sauce. Cover and bake at 375F for 40-45 minutes. Garnish with cheese strips, bake uncovered 5 minutes.

Tips: 

This recipe can be made without cooking the noodles if desired, it may take longer and you may prefer to make the sauce with a little more water.

Use the Pasta Sauce recipe for a lighter, less tomato-ee flavor. Look for it in the entrée section.
