Spinach sauteed in garlic – Check.  White wine mushroom ragu simmered to perfection – Check.  Chunky tomato sauce that just gives a hint of tomatoey-ness (yeah.  That’s a word) – Check.  Tinkyada Gluten Free Lasagna Noodles? – Yep, you bet.  And..And..Tofutti Ricotta?  < Uh huh.  Then baked to a bubbly golden perfection?  Oh gosh.  Just … just give me a second while I go eat the ENTIRE pan. Spinach & Mushroom Ragu Lasagna [Vegan/Gluten Free]

The fun part about this lasagna is that the tomatoes play a much smaller role than in most marinara – heavy lasagna recipes.  They just blend in perfectly in the background of mushrooms and creaminess.Spinach & Mushroom Ragu Lasagna [Vegan/Gluten Free]And…speaking of creamy…that Tofutti ricotta.  Geez.  < After my own heart, it is. Spinach & Mushroom Ragu Lasagna [Vegan/Gluten Free] The recipe may seem to have a lot of steps, but really it didn’t take long to put together.  I got the ragu, spinach and noodles all going at once while I stirred up the tomato sauce and preheated the oven.  Spinach & Mushroom Ragu Lasagna [Vegan/Gluten Free]After that…you just have to wait patiently while it bakes.  Spinach & Mushroom Ragu Lasagna [Vegan/Gluten Free] Are you ready to make it?!Spinach & Mushroom Ragu Lasagna [Vegan/Gluten Free]

  5. While noodles and ragu are cooking mix: diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, black pepper, paprika and nutmeg together in a large bowl
  6. Meanwhile, saute the 4 cloves of garlic. Once brown, add the spinach and cook until just wilted but still bright green. Add it to the tomato sauce and mix well. Set aside.
  7. Once the noodles, ragu and tomato sauce/spinach are ready it's time to layer the lasagna!
  8. Spread a thing layer of the tomato/spinach sauce onto the bottom of the pan, then layer in this order: noodles, 1/2 of the ricotta, mushroom ragu, noodles, tomato/spinach sauce, mushroom ragu, noodles, and finally the second half of the ricotta.
  9. Cover loosely with tinfoil (leave it loose on top so the ricotta will not stick) and bake for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove the tinfoil and bake for another 15 minutes uncovered, or until bubbly throughout.
  11. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
  12. Serve warm. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
