Zucchini and tofu lasagne - A quick recipe

        Lasagne is a wonderful dish where you get all the tastes and nutrition in one dish. This time I tried making a non fuss one pot lasagne dish which just needs baking and no cooking otherwise. It tasted really wonderful and the cherry tomatoes added that special zing when you bite into the juicy almost cooked tomatoes.
Serves : 4-6
lasagne sheets                         14 nos
Zucchini sliced                       500 gms
Sliced onions                         3 nos
Cherry tomatoes halved         500 gms
Grated tofu                            200 gms
Red bell peppers chopped     1 no
Chopped garlic                      2 tbsp
chopped basil                        5-6 leaves
Pasta sauce                            500 gms
White sauce                           500 gms
Olive oil                                2-3 tbsp
Grated cheese                        200 gms
Italian seasoning                    2 tsp
Pepper                                   1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Soak the pasta sheets in hot water for 5-10 mins.
In a baking dish, pour some olive oil in the base.
Layer up the zucchini, onions,bell peppers,cherry tomatoes and garlic.
Drizzle some olive oil on this.
Sprinkle salt, some Italian herbs and pepper.
Pour half the tomato sauce ,spread it and sprinkle half the tofu.
Put one layer of pasta sheets.
Layer up half the white sauce and some cheese.
Repeat the layers one more time.Add the basil too.
