Zucchini Artichoke Mushroom Lasagna

Zucchini Artichoke Mushroom Lasagna

I have to admit, this was the first time that I actually combined all of these specific ingredients to make a vegan lasagna dish, and without exaggerating, this Zucchini Artichoke Mushroom Lasagna is incredible.  Using fresh zucchini, mushrooms, green onions and basil from the garden, I layered the vegetables and topped each layer with marinara sauce, avocado basil pesto, and garlic cashew cheese for a yum flavor experience.   This dish is also vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

Ingredients

    Lasagna
  • 4 zucchini, sliced (I sliced mine in the food processor, hence they are round, but you can also slice lengthwise if you prefer.)
