The 'Minimalist Baker' blog put together a recipe for making noodle-free lasagna. Lasagna is a delicious pasta dish traditionally made from layering several sheets of pasta with meat, cheese and sauce. This recipe puts a vegan-inspired twist on the classic dish by swapping out the pasta entirely.

The noodle-free lasagna is made entirely from plant-based ingredients, making it vegetarian and vegan-friendly. The recipe substitutes pasta noodles for sweet potatoes, which provides a sweet taste and a tender texture. The potatoes are layered with a tofu-based ricotta and then topped with a basil pesto sauce. The ricotta mimics the cheesy flavor of a traditional lasagna, while the pesto sauce adds a herby element.

The vegan-friendly recipe ultimately provides a tasty alternative to a beloved pasta dish.
