Description

Making pasta will take on a whole new dimension after you hear this:

Preparing a lasagna can take up to 90 minutes plus sauce preparation. And what about the resulting pile of dishes?  Who has so much time on their hands? Don’t look at me….

Thanks to this “One pot” method of preparation you save time and headaches, because  all the ingredients go into a single pot, which is brought  to a boil and cooks for 20 minutes! Ideal for weeknights when you are deafened by kids screaming”where’s dinner?” 

This vegan lasagna pan recipe is also a great way for your family to enjoy tempeh. Tempeh is a superfood made from soybeans that is as rich in protein as beef and  contains more fiber.
Enjoy!
