Start by combining 1 tablespoon fresh basil with 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium bowl. In a food processor or blender, combine the basil and olive oil until combined completely.

If you’re not using sauce, simply follow the guidelines in the recipe.
I use sharp cheddar cheese. You can also substitute this with other cheeses such as Gruyere cheese. To increase the flavor and taste, you can also opt for the canned tomatoes instead of the fresh.

For the last step, I placed the entire completed lasagna on a non-stick cooking spray and allowed it to heat up for approximately two hours. I then used the aluminum foil to carefully cover the entire top of the lasagna. I used the cooking spray again to ensure that there were no cracks in the aluminum foil. Once it was cool enough to handle, I cut the edges of the lasagna at an angle to reveal the comforting softness of the spinach.

Spinach Vegetarian Lasagna Recipe
The great thing about this Spinach Vegetarian Lasagna recipe is that it only needed a single teaspoon of olive oil. If you do not have much, or if it is in short supply in your home, feel free to eliminate it. I found that using a can of tuna or another similar fish sauce worked just fine. Other additions that you may want to try are chopped fresh herbs such as basil, oregano, thyme and lemon pepper. Another idea would be to add some finely chopped zucchini. I did not because I did not like the texture of the zucchini.
In the beginning, all you need to do is mix together your prepared tomato sauce, nutritional yeast and olive oil. Mix these ingredients together using your fingers until they become a smooth paste. Next, you will need to add your chopped zucchini, finely chop any other vegetables you have, and your nutritious nutritional yeast.
Lastly, you will want to place your uncooked, chopped zucchini into your large bowl, along with your one tablespoon of olive oil. Then, using your spatula, gently mix the mixture until the zucchini are completely coated in the oil. Next, place the zucchini onto your uncooked pasta sheets and cover the entire sheet with your spatula. Let the noodles cook in their own liquid until they are al dente. Once done, remove the sheets from your slow cooker and place them into your separate bowl. At this point, it is recommended that you add your second tablespoon of olive oil and mix this into the mixture. You should then mix the cooked pasta with your one tablespoon of fresh basil. Once again, cover the entire bowl and let the mixture cook on low heat. When the desired tenderness is reached, remove the bowl from your slow cooker and place it into your refrigerator.
