    I know how you feel - I used quark once to try and make a carbonara sauce and it all went wrong! I should try it again because it sounds quite versatile!

    Honestly? I use Morrison's instant cheese sauce in a sachet which is made up with water and only cost something like 35p. It's 5 syns for the sachet and if you divide the lasagne up into 4-6 servings then it's excellent syn value. I mix a little grated cheese into it from my HEX A allowance and sometimes a little wholegrain mustard (for mac & cheese) and then sprinkle remaining HEX allowance over the top. It's sooo much better than fannying about with Quark or fromage frais - IMHO!

    I think i literally just poured a tub of cottage cheese onto the top of the lasagne and baked it - it's obviously not as good as a nice lardy melted cheese topping, but it's really not bad!

    Here's the link to the thread about lasagne with pics!

    http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world/67477-my-dinner-last-night-pics.html

    Recipe:
    ROASTED VEG/CHICKEN LASAGNE

    cooked chicken breast, cubed
    various roasting veg (incl some whole garlic cloves)
    tin of tomatoes with herbs
    pack of Morrison's Instant Cheese sauce (38g pack - 5 syns)
    cheddar cheese
    6-7 lasagne sheets

    1) Roast the veg for 20 mins (I used courgette, red onion, cherry toms, red pepper, orange pepper and mushrooms drizzles with balsamic vinegar)
    2) Put the chicken and tinned tomatoes in a bowl and microwave until warmed through
    3) Parboil lasagne sheets for 4-5 mins
    4) Make up the cheese sauce as per instructions on pack

    Spray a lasagne dish with Frylight. Squeeze the roasted garlic into the the chicken/tomato mixture and mix. Spoon into bottom of dish. Top with 3 lasagne sheets. Spoon all of the roasted veg over the lasagne and top with the remaining sheets. Pour the cheese sauce over the top and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until golden brown on top. Serve with salad, if desired.

    Using the chicken and cheese as HEXs the dish is only 5 syns for the lot! Or if you're on EE it's only 5 syns for the lot using cheese as HEX.

    You know that you can get a smooth cottage cheese now? It's called 'Eat Honestly' and I have seen it in Tesco and Sainsburys now.
