Favorite Family Recipes: Vegetarian Lasagna

My favorite kind of meal is one where everyone eats it, maybe has seconds and the meal was stocked full of healthy veggies.

Insert lasagna. I've made this recipe in the past but had a gut feeling I could tweak it to make it more simple and even healthier.

Here are the ingredients you need:
9 lasagna noodles
1.5 cups of chopped mushrooms 
4 cups of spinach 
1 container of soft organic tofu 
2 pieces of broccoli ribs
2 jars spaghetti sauce 
2 cups mozzarella cheese
8-10 olives

Preheat oven to 385 degrees.
Cook the noodles as box indicates, while they are cooking take spinach, broccoli and tofu and blend until creamy.

In a rectangular baking pan put 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce down and move pan side to side until bottom is covered. Place 3 noodles side by side, put tofu/spinach mixture on noodles, spreading evenly with spatula. Sprinkle mushrooms, layer next with spaghetti sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Repeat 2 more times. 

Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more, let cool for 10 minutes, then enjoy!
