Pour 1/4 of the sauce on this layer, then cover with noodles. Repeat with the remaining veggie mix and ricotta then cover with final noodle layer. Spread the final amount of sauce on the noodles, and then sprinkle with vegan mozzarella.

Notes

To make this dish cleaner and removed the processed food, use cooked lentils in place of the vegan sausage. You could also blend 8 oz of silken tofu with some nutritional yeast and the other ingredients in place of the ricotta, and leave off the vegan mozzarella entirely.
