preparation steps:




1. to make vegan "ricotta" filling:place garlic cloves in running food processor until minced very fine, add tofu, nutritional yeast, a handful of fresh basil leaves, salt and pepper and process until blended and set aside
2. place a couple of ladle fulls of marinara in the bottom of a casserole dish so bottom of dish is just covered

3. place one layer of cooked noodles, and layer "ricotta" mix, fresh spinach,roasted summer squash, cooked lasagna noodles,marinara sauce, basil leaves, until you've used all or pan is too full to continue ;) - leave a few fresh basil leaves to chiffonade for garnish on top of baked lasagna
