Jessica’s Mostly Raw Lasagna

This raw lasagne is “mostly raw” because of the use of organic tomato sauce.

Says Jessica of this recipe, “Even those who have been resistant to the whole raw/slightly cooked food, were going back for seconds of this raw lasagne!!”

Says Jessica “I developed this recipe for my boss’ wedding shower. People went NUTS for it, even those who were psyched out by the title “raw” went back for seconds!!” And you will too!
