2 small or 1 normal Aubergine / Eggplant

2 Courgette / Zucchini

2 Large Portobello Mushrooms

1 small White Onion

2 Red Pepper/ Red Capsicum

1 Large tin tomato

2 cloves Garlic

Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper

25g Butter – can be reduced fat etc

25g Flour

1/2 Pint – about 250ml Milk – can be skinny

Grated Mozza / Parmesan etc

Lasagne Sheets


1. Chop the Red Peppers, Courgettes, Aubergines into 2cm cubes, mix together, toss in 1tbsp olive oil, season and shove on a basking tray into the oven to grill / bake / cook – doesn’t need to be perfect.

2. Cut onion into rings and sweat with crushed garlic, oil, s and p. Add chopped Mushies. Once this has cooked for about 2 mins – pour in tomato, stir thoroughly.

3. Once oven Veges are cooked, toss them into onion mix – taste and re-season.

4. To make the white sauce – melt the butter on a low low heat – stir in the flour, a little at a time – once you have made this ‘paste’ – take it off the heat and gradually whish in the milk – once all whisked in – put back on heat – CONTINUOUSLY whisking – and allow to come to a slow boil. You will see it will thicken up. Once done – toss in grated cheese – OFF THE HEAT.

5. Grab a ‘lasagne dish’ – I use my heart-shaped Le Creuset given to me by JP as a wedding gift – thanks JP! – but basically just get any oven dish that is about 20cm sq or equivalent. Assemble the lasagne by scooping some Vege mix on to the bottom of the dish, add the lasagne sheet on top, then more vege, then sheet, repeat until dish is nearrrrrly full – make your 2nd last layer lasagne sheet and then your final layer all of the white sauce. Cover in grated cheese – chuck into oven on 180 deg cel and cook until golden and bubbling…..aboouuuuuttttt 40 mins.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yum! We’re having it tonight!

Serve it with rocket / green salad.

Clearly you can vary how you layer the lasagne – if you want to pig out, make more white sauce and put it in between each layer, along with a million kilos of cheese….and then call an ambulance!
