I never realized (until I made this recipe) that HOT DANG am I good at this preparing meals thing:) I seriously felt so amazing cooking this weekend, and back in my element. The results.... This amazing raw vegan lasagna.

2. Lay zucchini slices along lasagna pan, covering as much of the pan as you can.

4. Pour over your 1st layer (one of your 3 sauces). I chose the marinara.
5. Cut your squash long ways in thin strips.
6. Place your thin strips of squash long ways on top of your sauce.
7. Pour your next layer of sauce on top of the squash. I chose to spread on my pesto.
8. Cut your portobello long ways (so the mushroom stays wide) in to thin strips.
9. Place mushrooms on top of sauce, covering the sauce completely.
10. On top of the mushrooms, spread your last layer of sauce. (I chose my cashew "cheeze")
11. Cut in to thick slices, serve on a plate and enjoy!
