A Message From Our Nutritionist

 It’s a little bit more work than a traditional lasagna but it cooks so much quicker and serves up nicely because it’s individually portioned.  I used tofu as a substitute for traditional ricotta.  Tofu is so versatile and its mild flavour serves as a very good sub to ricotta in this dish.
