Comments
This is a great basic lasagne -- my roommate and I created a variation by adding a layer to the assembly: We marinated a (10 or 12-ounce?) package of tofu in vegetarian boullion for an hour, then food-processed it with a pound of spinach. This made a wonderful ricotta-like filling to layer in the lasagne, and could be used for other filled pastas, such as stuffed shells or manicotti.
