My husband suggested that we have lasagna this weekend and I want to do
more cooking with soyfoods, so I made this recipe from McDougall's new
book. It was easy to make because you don't have to cook the noodles first
or do a lot of preparation. I cut the recipe in half and changed the
proportions a little so that I did not have small amounts of perishable
leftover ingredients. My local stores do not carry lowfat tofu and fatfree
soy chesse, so I had to make the long trek to Whole Foods.
I liked the idea of covering the pan with parchment paper and then with
foil because the parchment paper kept the food from sticking to the foil.
This is a trick I will try in similar situations.
This is my modified version.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crumble the tofu into a bowl. Mix in onion and garlic powder. Stir in
spinach and mix well.
Pour 1/2 jar of the pasta sauce in the bottom of a 13 1/2 x 9 inch baking
dish. Lay 1/3 of the uncooked lasagna noodles over the sauce. Take 1/2 of
the tofu mixture and spread it over the noodles, then pour the rest of the
jar of the pasta sauce over the tofu mixture and spread to cover well. Lay
1/2 of the sliced soy cheese over the sauce, then follow with another layer
of noodles, tofu mixture, sauce and soy cheese. Finish with a layer of
noodles, another 1/2 jar of sauce and sprinkle with fatfree parmesan
cheese, if desired. Cover with parchment paper and then cover tightly with
foil. Bake for 60 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover and let rest for 10
minutes before serving.
It freezes well after baking. Use your favorite brand of fat free pasta
sauce, egg-free lasagna noodles, soy cheese and fresh tofu. Do not use
aseptically packaged tofu in this recipe.
