This recipe can be completely assembled and baked up to 2 days ahead of time. Cover and store in the refrigerator. It's creamy but not heavy. The broccoli adds a wonderful crunch, and the mushrooms and olives a great flavor.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet; add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook until mushrooms are soft, about 3 minutes longer. Remove from heat and add broccoli and olives. Mix gently. Combine ricotta cheese, tofu, soy protein powder, and herbs in a medium bowl until blended. Bring 4 quarts water and 1/2 tsp. olive oil to a boil. Add lasagna noodles and boil 12 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse under warm water. Moisten the bottom of a 9X9-inch pan with 2 Tbs. of the tomato sauce. Put down a single layer of noodles. Spread with one-third of the ricotta mix, one-third of the vegetables, 2/3 C. tomato sauce, and one-fourth of the mozzarella. Repeat twice. Cover with remaining noodles, tomato sauce, and mozzarella. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes or until bubbling.
