I was going through my pantry and realised that I have boxes and boxes (and boxes!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">) of lasagne noodles. I haven't used them in ages, as I am dairy-free while BF'ing my ds.<br><br>
Does anyone have any dairy-free lasagne recipes to help me use up my noodles?

Here's what I do:<br><br>
The easy way: Sauce, noodles, vegan cheese, layered until I get to the top. Then I cover and bake.<br><br>
The more interesting way: Same as above but I add a layer of spinach mixed in with crumbled tofu. Or add a layer of veggies or eggplant.

I made some recently and sauted all the veggies in my crisper- onion, carrots, zuccini, broccoli and some mushrooms with fresh basil (had some), garlic and italien spices in olive oil and put that in layers between the noodles, too. I did use cheese because I am still insearch of gluten-free vegan cheese, but there is no reason you can't substitute that.

CAn someone here give me the brand names of some vegan cheese? I have NEVER found vegan cheese. They all contain whey or casein, even though they are named things like "veggie slices" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: My daughter is very allergic to dairy in all forms and this has limited our menu somewhat. BTW, is there a soy cheese that is not only vegan, but doesn't taste like @$$? Thank you!

Just wait, I'm going to be your new best friend.<br><br>
Go to <a href="http://www.imearthkind.com" target="_blank">http://www.imearthkind.com</a> and you will find the best vegan cheese on the market. It tastes great and melts! It's just making its way into the health food stores now so if your store doesn't have it, ask them to carry it.<br><br>
I am using this cheese (mozarella and cheddar) to make lasagna, enchiladas, quesadillas, macaroni and cheese, etc. I love it! Try it out, you won't be sorry (IMHO).<br><br>
There is another vegan cheese made by Soyco/Galaxy Foods. Vegan Slices (American style and mozarella slices) but I don't care for it that much.

I am also dairy free b/c dd is allergic. I check everything for any traces of dairy. You might test this though...my dd is not effected by sheep's cheese. (goat's does effect her though) There are some fabulous sheep's cheeses out there...manchego being my favorite. Romano cheese and most feta's are also made from sheep's<br><br>

Instead of using ricotta cheese, I mash silken firm tofu and mix in crushed garlic, herbs, and a bit of olive oil, as well as a bit of shredded non-dairy cheese. I layer this w/ sauce and noodles, then top it w/ shredded non-dairy cheese.<br>
I've made stuffed shells this way as well. It's wonderful! Even my tofu-hating dh was fooled, and asked for seconds!

Brilliant ideas - thanks. I really like the sound of the silken tofu instead of ricotta, and the sheep's cheese. (I didn't know romano cheese was sheep's cheese!) Hopefully, I will be able to use up some of my noodles now!
