To start making this lasagna, make the meat sauce first. To do this, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic. Cook them for 8-10 minutes, until you can feel the carrots get softer and smell the garlic become fragrant. Add veggie ground round and cook for 3-5 minutes, until it gets heated through. Pour in the passata, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, bouillon, basil, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Mix everything and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer, add agave and taste the sauce. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Cover pot and simmer, stirring occasionally, for roughly 20-30 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened.

While this sauce simmers, prepare the Vegan Bechamel Sauce. Click here for Bechamel Sauce recipe!

BEST Vegan Lasagna Recipe | How To Make Easy Meatless LasagnaTo assemble the Lasagna:

Once both sauces are prepared, preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop 1 cup of the ‘meat sauce’ to the bottom of 9×13 inch baking dish, spread it evenly. Cover with lasagna sheets, breaking if needed so they fit nicely. Layer with roughly 2 cups of meat sauce to cover the pasta sheets, then 1 cup of the bechamel sauce. Repeat until your baking dish gets pretty full and you start running low on sauces. the last layer should be a thick amount of meat sauce topped with bechamel.

Cover loosely with tin foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes until golden and bubbling. Remove from the oven and garnish with parsley. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing into squares and serving.
