A Gluten Free Dairy Free lasagna just like mom's (NOT mine) that's ABSOLUTELY AMBROSIAL! It takes some doing, but worth all the work!

 2 tbsp olive oil
 2 cups chopped onions (I always use fennel)
 ½ cup diced carrot
 1 tbsp fennel seeds, crushed in a mortar and pestle or spice mill
 1 lb spicy Italian Beyond Meat (or turkey or pork) sausage, casings removed
 3 garlic cloves, pressed (or microplaned or chopped)
 ½ cup dry white wine
 5 cups crushed tomatoes with added puree (from two 28-ounce cans)
 1 cup chopped fresh basil, divided
 2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
 2 8-ounce containers Kite Hill Dairy Free ricotta
 1 package Miyoko's Dairy Free fresh mozarella, grated
 1 ¼ cups Follow Your Heart Dairy Free Parmesan cheese, divided
 1 package RP's Pasta fresh lasgne sheets

Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add onions (fennel), carrot, and fennel seeds; saute 5 minutes. Then add sausage and garlic; saute until sausage in cooked through, breaking into pieces, 8 to 10 minutes. Mix in wine; boil 1 minute. Finally, add tomatoes, 1/2 cup basil, and oregano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.


Combine ricotta, mozzarella, 1 cup Parmesan, and 1/2 cup basil in medium bowl; stir to blend. Season with pepper.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spread 1 cup sauce over bottom of 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Cover with 3 lasagna sheets placed horizontally across the dish. Drop 1/4 of the cheese mixture over by tablespoons; spread out. Top with 1 cup sauce, then three noodles, and 1/4 of remaining cheese mixture. Repeat twice more with sauce, noodles, and remaining cheese mixture. Spread any remaining sauce. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan.


Bake lasagna uncovered until heated and puffed, around 50 minutes. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes and serve.


Sauce and cheese mixture can be made 1 day ahead. Cover separately. Chill.


If using dried Gluten Free lasagna noodles, use 16-6 1/2x3 1/4-inch no-boil lasagna noodles, place in large bowl; cover with hot water. Soak until pliable, about 30 minutes. If using dried noodles, prepare 1 package according to package directions. Drain either.
