Directions

1. Begin by making the sauce. In a pot, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over low-medium heat. Add the onion and carrot, sauté for 8 minutes. Add the garlic, oregano, bay leaf, marjoram, chili flakes and season with salt and pepper, stir for 1 minute. Pour in cans of whole peeled tomatoes and bring to a boil. Begin to crush the tomatoes with a wooden spoon. Reduce back to a simmer and continue to cook for 1 hour uncovered. Stir the veggie meat into the sauce.

2. Preheat oven to 350F.

3. While oven preheats in another mixing bowl combine ricotta, Parmesan, oregano, basil, egg yolks and season with salt and pepper.

4. To assemble the lasagna, begin by ladling 1 cup of sauce into the bottom of the lasagna dish. Arrange three sheets of lasagna noodle. Layer with another cup of sauce, 1 cup of the ricotta mixture, and a third of the mozzarella.

5. Repeat for the next (second) layer.

6. For the third layer, lay the noodles then the final third of the mozzarella. Top the cheese with sauce and distribute dollops of ricotta evenly.

7. Finally, evenly distribute the remaining sauce around the dollops of ricotta so that the ricotta is still visible.

8. Cover the lasagna dish with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes. Uncover the lasagna and bake for an additional 25 minutes. Allow the lasagna to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
