Recipe by Winnie & Liz

Serves 6

Ingredients:

1 large Spaghetti Squash
6 Carrots
1 1/2 bunches Kale
3 c Spaghetti Sauce
1 c Salsa
1 can Beans (red, black, or pinto)
3 stalks Celery (rough chopped)
1 pk Daiya Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
2 tbsp Tamari

Salt
Olive Oil

Cooking Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 350.
2) Bring 4 QTs water to a boil.

4) Grate 3 carrots and chop the celery.

2) Slather 1/2 the sauce over the squash.
3) Spread the beans over the sauce.
4) Slather the remaining sauce over the beans.
5) Generously sprinkle the Daiya cheese package over the top.

Voila! You’re finished 🙂 Enjoy this delicious, flavor-blasted lasagna with a heaping helping of the tender kale and carrots.
