Private Property ("Meaty" Vegetarian Lasagna)



Introduction

I finally tried making my own seitan from scratch. It is EASY! It takes a little time, but is worth it. I used the recipe on the package of vital gluten with a few modifications. After boiling for one hour, I drained it and baked it for an hour Honestly, it looked like steak with none of the icky grossness! LOL.

I cannot tell you the amount of spices I used because I do it by taste....Anyway, this WAS a lot of work and the hubby (meat eater) kept eating more and more! I had to tell him to keep his paws off! Private Property! I want to freeze some for ME for later.

Ingredients

    Seitan (prepared the day before from the recipe on package of Bob's Red Mill brand Vital Wheat Gluten ---use one half of seitan – use the remainder for another recipe) OR you can use one package of MorningStar Crumbles
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 T. Olive Oil
    12 oz. pkg. Great Value Oven Ready Lasagna
    1.2 cup Great Value Fancy Shredded Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
    3 cup Cottage Cheese - Great Value, Fat Free, Small Curd
    ˝ C. Parmesan
    45 oz. jar of Great Value Traditional Pasta Sauce,(5 cups)
    Egg, fresh, 2 large

    Oregano, Sage, Rosemary, Garlic and Basil used to taste

Directions

Chop seitan. Saute in olive oil with chopped onion and Oregano, Sage, Rosemary, Garlic and Basil used to taste (I am pretty heavy on the sage and rosemary so it tastes like sausage!) until nicely browned. Set aside.

Beat eggs. Add in cottage cheese, parmesan cheese and liberal amount of oregano and basil. Set aside.

Spread enough sauce to cover bottom of 9” x 13” pan. Add about ˝ C. of water to thin out (the extra water also helps cook the noodles). Layer noodles, cottage cheese mixture, “meat” mixture and sprinkle with mozzarella and then sauce. Repeat until everything is used up, ending with noodles and sauce on the top layer. Smoosh it all down with your hands.  Sprinkle the last bit of mozzarella on the top.

Spray a large piece of foil with Pam and place the sprayed side down on the lasagna. Mold fold to pan tightly on the edges. At this point you can either bake it or “hold” in the fridge to bake later.

To bake: Bake covered at 375 degrees for 50 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10 – 15 minutes until browned.

I like to freeze individual portions in the Ziploc containers to microwave for lunches at work. I usually leave it in my lunch bag to thaw all morning so it does not take as long to reheat in the microwave (or if you plan ahead you can let thaw in the fridge the night before). Unfortunately, hubby hogs it so I renamed it PRIVATE PROPERTY ‘cause it is too much work for meat eaters to steal from non-meat eaters.

Makes 12 servings.
