Vegetable Lasagne

19 Feb

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 diced onion
5 garlic cloves
handful of chopped mushrooms
tin of chopped tomatoes
salt and pepper
half cup stock
sprinkling of herbs – basil and oregano
1 tub ricotta cheese
cheddar or similar cheese – about 2 thumbs worth
splash of milk
lasagne sheets (fresh or dry works)

Make your tomato and vegetable sauce (the bit that would traditionally be the meat sauce), by frying the onions and garlic in the olive oil until translucent. Add the mushrooms and fry until softened.
Add the tin of tomatoes, salt and pepper, stock and herbs. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly.

While your sauce is simmering away, you can make the ricotta sauce. I like this sauce as it’s quicker than making a white sauce. Tip the ricotta into a bowl and grate the cheddar into it before giving it a stir. Add milk until it has a white sauce consistency. It’s as easy as that!

Layer up your lasagne using the sauces and lasagne sheets. I always start with the tomato sauce, then pasta.. and then I forget which order everything else goes in! For this one I layered tomato sauce, lasagne sheet, ricotta sauce, tomato sauce, lasagne sheet, ricotta sauce. You can keep on layering if you still have enough sauce left.
Then grate some parmesan on top.

It will need to go in the oven at 190°c for about 45 minutes. you can grill it slightly to get a crispier top.

I served mine with some spinach and ermm.. some other leaves.
