Lasagne Recipe Please
Does anyone have a good & tasty SW lasagne recipe please?
I made baked bean lasange today. I subsituted the white sauce for a tin of baked beans. Added lots of veggies.
I make the bean one and now I've been using chilli beans, tinned tomatoes, onions peppers etc
Not quite the same, but it hits the spot for me and has a similar combination of flavours and textures.... I make some spicy mince (bolognaise style with loads of extra veg added) then top it with a Batchelors brocolli and cheese pasta in sauce made without butter or milk, just water, sprinkle over HEx of reduced fat cheddar, spray with frylight and bake til the cheese is melted and golden.

I'm wanting to try using Mountain Bread instead of lasagne sheets. I have read rave reviews about it as long as your mixture isn't too liquidy. Also, I've tried using ricotta cheese or packet powder cheese sauce to substitute the fatty/ carby white sauce. Very nice!
