Herbivore Lasagna - Try 2

This is try two. Upped the veggies as planned.  Also upped the tofu.  Switched brands and just drained and crumbled.  Filled the pan and good form but the spicy tomato sauce was too much, could have used some savory herbs, and where the zucchini was in contact with the noodles there was a slightly soggy thing going on.  Still pretty much yum and next day it tasted great cold.
