I wanted to make something for dinner this Sunday that was nice and warm since it was actually cold outside and something that I could keep in containers for lunch the rest of the week. I hadn’t made lasagna in a while and it seemed like the perfect thing to make. If I hadn’t of known it was vegan I wouldn’t have guessed there was no cheese in it! My fiance even enjoyed it!
