Hello everyone! I came up with this by combining various recipes from across the web - the yield of this recipe and how much material you use is very much up to you - depends on the size of the pan you have available, etc. I used a loaf pan, so I'll just give the measurements that I used:

---
What you will need:
Joseph's Lavash bread (may sub zucchini)
PAM

127 g Mori-Nu Lite Tofu (may use other tofu)
Garlic Powder
Oregano
Basil
Lemon juice

Your homemade tomato sauce or my recipe:
2 oz onion
2 oz tomato
4 oz hunts tomato sauce
1/4 cup Yves Ground Round
Garlic powder
water

---

First you will need to prepare all your separate parts.

Prepare the lavash bread to be the 'noodles' by cutting it into strips that will fit the pan. Next, spray it with your cooking spray and brush it with garlic powder. Bake it lightly, don't let it get toasted and watch it carefully cause this stuff burns easily.

To prepare the faux ricotta layer you will need to get your food processor and add the tofu, as well as a bit of cooking spray, oregano, basil, lemon juice, and garlic powder (add more garlic powder than any other ingredient). Mix this up. If you choose to use other tofu, keep in mind that the firmness will determine the 'ricotta' texture

You may choose to use your own pasta sauce but mine was made this way:
Fry the onions, when they start getting slightly brown, add the tomato, and then some water and garlic powder. Stir and turn the heat down, allowing to simmer before adding the Hunt's tomato sauce. Take off heat. Mix in Yves ground round.

NOW FOR ASSEMBLY (this is the fun part)

Spray the bottom of your pan with PAM and coat with a little bit of sauce and add your layers!

a layer of lavash
some tofu ricotta
sauce
a layer of lavash
tofu ricotta
sauce
repeat until you run out of ingredients, make sure you built to the top of the pan (the mixture will settle while baking). Save any excess sauce to use when serving

Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake, keeping a close eye on it! Take it out when it looks ready

Let the lasagna sit for at least 15 minutes before eating.

So for this recipe you have to keep in mind that we're only permitted 2 oz of hunt's per day, so if you make it according to my measurements, you have to split this into two, with each serving yielding 1 bread, half a protein, and half a veggie.

Possible alterations: add meat instead of ground round, add allegro cheese as one of the layers or just melt it on top before serving.

If you don't have Lavash bread it's possible to use Zucchini as the noodles. Prepare your zucchini as such:
Slice the zucchini lengthwise into thin strips (about 1/4 inch). Place onto a baking sheet, spray with PAM, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil these, turning and re-spraying with PAM once, until lightly browned on both sides

Thanks so much for this recipe. Both the lavash and the zucchini versions sound delicious. I'll definitely be trying both of them.

No problem! I thought it would need the allegro but the ricotta is so good that you can do without and save your protein. Enjoy!
