This Living Lasagna is one of the most scrumptious recipes! It may take a little extra time to prepare, but IT IS WELL WORTH IT. The Red Pepper Cheese is one of the reasons this lasagna is so outrageous. This “cheese” would be superb atop a salad, or a dollop of it on raw veggies! Two different toppings are provided. Choose either the Raw Tomato Sauce or Tomato Dressing.
