Zucchini Lasagna

What you need: 

1 box lasagna noodles
1 - 2 zucchini
6 baby portobello mushrooms
6 button mushrooms
10 baby carrots
1/2 onion
1 cup frozen spinach
1/2 red, yellow or orange bell pepper
shredded vegan mozzarella cheese (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 cup red wine
1/2 bag of burger-style crumbles (optional)
garlic to taste
fresh basil to taste
1 jar (mine was 16 oz) premade marinara

What you do: 

Cook noodles to box specifications. While waiting for water to boil, preheat oven to 350. Chop all veggies **except zucchini** to be bite sized or as small as you wish them. (I like mine a little on the big side so they don't get lost in the sauce). Set zucchini aside.
In a separate pan, heat the olive oil. Add garlic and onions and cook until onions begin to turn translucent. Add peppers and carrots, cook a few more minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté a little longer. Add wine, jar of sauce, veggie crumbles and frozen spinach. Simmer for as long as you can, stirring frequently.
Once noodles are done, smear a little olive oil on the bottom of a pan. I like thick lasagna so I used a 9x9x3 pan. You could make thinner lasagna in a 9x13x2 pan if you wish. Slice zucchini lengthwise to make long thin slices. Once sauce is done, smear a little on the bottom of the pan. Next lay down one layer of noodles followed by a thin layer of zucchini then sauce. Repeat until you are out of stuff. Cover and cook in oven for 1 hour. If you are using vegan mozzarella cheese you can add this now as well.
It looks complicated but it isn't and its super tasty! We also liked it with a little nutritional yeast sprinkled on top :)

This recipe was great.  I think I did use a little too much wine, but it was still tasty.  I would recommend that the zuccini be very thinly sliced.

This was really delicious! The only change was I put a thin layer of cheese in the layers I repeated. The type of premade marinara sauce you use will have a big effect. The variety of veggies worked out wonderfully though and it is a favorite now!
