'Meat' and Vegetable Lasagna

   1 box of lasagna noodles
   3 vegan hamburger patties (I used Boca)
   1 26 oz. jar of pasta sauce
   1 large onion
   1 cup of spinach
   Vegan mozzarella cheese (I used Toffuti)

First boil and cook your lasagna noodles according to the instructions on the box.

While you wait for your noodles to get done, heat up your hamburger patties. Then cut them up into tiny pieces. I would recommend using Boca meatless crumbles, but my local grocery store didn't have any that day so I just used the patties. They worked just as well!
Next, saute your onions to get them nice and soft. Chop up the spinach as well.

Once your noodles are done and you have all your ingredients together, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a baking dish to lay the rolled noodles in. Start by putting a layer of pasta sauce on the bottom of the dish to prevent the noodles from sticking.

Next, take a noodle and lay it on a glass plate. Scoop some of your pasta sauce onto the noodle and spread it around so you have a nice thin layer. Then add on your ingredients! Layer the hamburger, onion, spinach and since I used the cheese slices - I just broke 'em up into smaller pieces and tossed them here and there on top of the ingredients.

Then for the part that can get messy..Very carefully roll up the noodle and set it in your baking dish with the end of the noodle facing down to keep it from falling apart. Do this until your dish is full (I got 6 to fit nicely into a smaller baking dish).

Once you have all the noodles rolled up, top it with the remaining sauce (or just add as much as you like). Then get another two slices of cheese to break apart and lay on top of everything.

Pop it in the oven for about 45 minutes and enjoy it!
