Traditionally at Christmas my family will make a big pan of lasagna for dinner. The thought behind it is that it is a day for the family to spend together and it is really hard to do that when you are trying to cook a turkey or ham and all of the fixings. This tradition has been great until this year when I found that I am allergic to the most delicious part of lasagna! In June I got really sick and after a visit to the allergist we found out that I am allergic to dairy. Really sucks when you like ice cream, cheese, yogurt, chocolate milk. Not wanting my family to miss out on our yearly tradition I did some research for tofu ricotta recipes and once I found one that I liked I went to work on changing it to where I would love it! Happy to report that below is the recipe that I came up with and we still got to celebrate our tradition albeit with 2 different pans of lasagna. Happy New Year!
