Vegan Lasagna with Summer Squash

(aka “Love-sagna,” perfect for a day when #LoveWon)

-1 12 oz package lasagna noodles
-24 oz tomato-based pasta sauce, jarred or homemade
~1 tbsp olive oil
-Seasoned salt of choice (I used Old Bay)
-1 white onion, finely diced
-2 medium zucchini, sliced into thin rounds
-1 medium yellow squash, sliced into thin rounds
(NOTE: set some zucchini and squash aside and cut into half-moons if you wish to garnish the top)
~Cashew cheese:
-1 ½ c cashews, soaked at least an hour (overnight is ideal)
-3 cloves garlic
-3 tbsp lemon juice
-¼ c vegetable broth (or more as needed)
-1 tbsp Dijon mustard
-2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast seasoning (optional but tasty)
-1 tbsp arrowroot powder
-Salt and crushed red pepper to taste

-Cook your lasagna noodles al dente, and rinse immediately with cold water to prevent sticking.

-While the lasagna noodles cook, combine all cashew cheese ingredients into a high-speed blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Let rest in the refrigerator while you finish the other components.

-Lightly sauté the onion and round-cut zucchini and squash until just tender. Season to taste.

-Now, preheat your oven to 350F.

-While the oven gets hot, layer your ingredients. This is a matter of personal preference, but I recommend that you:
-Spread a thin layer of pasta sauce in the bottom of your casserole dish.
-Place your first layer of lasagna noodles over the sauce. Spread a thick layer of cashew cheese over the noodles (I recommend a rubber spatula for this), and gently spread pasta sauce over the cashew cheese, being careful not to over-mix.
-Place a second layer of noodles in the dish. Spread a thick layer of tomato sauce, and gently place half of the sautéed vegetables over this layer.
-Place a third layer of noodles in the dish. Make an “everything layer” with tomato sauce, cashew cheese, and veggie.
-Place your fourth and final layer of noodles in the dish. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over the noodles, followed by a carefully-applied, thick layer of cashew cheese. Optionally, arrange your half-moon squash, zucchini, and extra tomato sauce into a tricolor heart, because love is amazing. Sprinkle some seasoning over the top layer.

-Bake at 350F for 35 minutes, and then broil for three.

Enjoy with good friends and love in your heart!
