vegan lasagna

This is a lasagna that is creamy and rich without the dairy. Totally delicious even for the skeptics among us! I made this for my grandson’s birthday dinner and even the 2 and 4 year old liked it! There’s a lot of ingredients here but it’s worth it. Use plenty of fresh herbs and spices to your liking. Make it your own creation and Enjoy! lasagna2
