Vegan Lasagna

The following recipe is from the Vegetarian Times: http://www.vegetariantimes.com (scroll down to the bottom of the page). I haven't made it yet, but I plan to! it sounds pretty good.

A meatless and cheeseless lasagna that even your mother could love.
The tomato sauce recipe makes enough to serve on the side or to freeze and enjoy later with pasta.
