  1. i have 2 containers of gf lasagna noodles hanging out in the pantry, it’s been a good while that i’ve had them and i was going to just crumble them and add them to an Everything Soup and call it a day. however, this looks to be the kind of recipe that i could throw together and eat that day, or, throw together and freeze to eat another day. my kind of dish.

    see you tonight!

    • DEFINITELY try this out. Both of us couldn’t get over how good this was. One of the best meals of the winter. It reheats really well too. I kind of wish they had the no boil necessary ones like they do for regular lasagna noodles, but it really doesn’t take that much extra time to make them. I actually had a few left over so you can mix them with something the next day. Can’t wait to see you!!

  2. That sounds great – I lived on marinara with wholemeal pasta in my early 20s and I was very pleasantly surprised by the taste and texture of rice pasta. I might have to visit the amazing Italian place next door, tonight, after reading this.
    Congratulations on the half marathon 🙂

    • Thanks, MD. I haven’t had a lasagna in quite a while and this is so much more than that! The cashew cream. I think I have a thing for old Italian classics because the last thing that wowed me was the pizza. Thanks for the half marathon cheers. It was fun and I’d like to do it again, but maybe in warmer weather. I hope you’re doing well and have a wonderful weekend.

  3. This lasagna sounds lovely! I like that you included instructions for people who aren’t such good planners for soaking the cashews!! (That would apply to me). 🙂 Congratulations on the half marathon! That must have been fun to run through all those parts of the city. What a great accomplishment! Hope you are enjoying the warmer weather and have a great weekend!

    • Thanks, Jenny. This is recipe you’d enjoy and I never remember to soak cashews. The half marathon was really fun and the warmer weather feels like such a relief, even if whoever controls the heat pipes in my building hasn’t caught up yet. It’s like 90f in my apartment as I write! Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh congratulations on completing the marathon! I’m glad you enjoyed it, eventhough it sounds like it was far from easy. I am not sure I could have braved the cold… well done. Now you know you can do it! This dish looks really nice, I love veggie packed lasagna, especially with the delicious combination of mushrooms and spinach. I would love this! I had to google coconut aminos; I doubt it is something readily available here; does it taste of coconut?

    • Thanks. Darya. I honestly have never used them. I just used the soy sauce I had on hand, which isn’t the gluten free tamari or aminos. But they’re all similar. This is a great dish. As for running, while this was great I’ll take a break. I’m signed up for the crazy race again with my brother but this time in cape cod which is flat. After that I just plan to do little runs in the park. Have a great weekend. Miss you!

  5. OoooOooOooo!!!
    I never thought to use cashew cream as a substitute for bechamel sauce, freaking GENIUS!
    And CONGRATS on the marathon love bug!! If you ever decide to run in the Boston Marathon (if you can even make it on their ever exclusive list * eye roll*), I’LL BE THERE WITH BELLS AND WHISTLES ON!
    Def bookmarking this recipe woooo, my friend darby will love this 😆😆😆

    • It is a genius move. And so delicious. Thanks so much for the 1/2 marathon love. I don’t think I have any desire to run a marathon, but if I ever run a race in your direction I’ll hold you to the bells and whistles. I’d love that. I hope you’re doing well! Love checking in with you. xoxo Have a good week!

  6. Congratulations on the run!!! That’s awesome. Inspirational for sure 🙂 And that lasagna would satisfy a hungry runner for sure. Yay you 🙂 Love that you’re still keeping on keeping on. Woot.

  7. Happy spring to you and big congratulations on running the half marathon! What a fantastic goal to reach! You’ve earned some relaxing couch time, although I’m sure you’ll be setting and attaining more goals for yourself very soon. I’m impressed!

    I know what you mean about making plant based dishes the main star…this lasagna certainly succeeds in doing so. Mushrooms add so much savory and satisfying oomph to a dish so I know I’ll like this one. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you, Hannah! Happy Spring and Passover. Running was great, but I definitely need a break. And you called it, I do have some more goals. I think you’ll love this dish because even the pasta has nutritional value and yet the whole thing tastes so darn good! I hope you’re doing well! xo

  8. I have a girlfriend who can’t pass up lasagna. The problem is her husband is going gluten free. This recipe sounds like the perfect answer to make them both happy.

    • That’s excellent Karen! That would love this. I like it more than the real thing. So nice to see you here. I hope you’re doing well and ready for spring!

  9. I am finally at my desk with some time to read you. I love how accessible your writing is and how you add little things like tips for poor planners (gulity!). I always feel like it’s an actual visit – as though I can visualize your life; your kitchen; your forcing yourself from the couch and potential Law & Order marathons to train for real marathons instead; the finish line itself and all the energy and excitement at various points along the way. Congratulations btw on your successful run. Well done!
    I’m printing off this recipe and look forward to trying it. I keep those Tinkyada brown rice noodles in my pantry. And I’ll get some nutritional yeast – it makes great salad dressing too.
    Happy spring Amanda. xo

    • Your comments are always so beautiful. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the congrats. The run was fun. I don’t know about training through another winter, but this tine it worked. And now it’s beautiful spring. I saw you have a new recipe up so I’ll check it out! As for the lasagna, these rice noodles are new to me. I now make them a pantry staple too. And I use nutritional yeast on my salads every day. So funny. I hope you’re well and can’t wait to read what you’ve been up to. Xoxo
