    Default Vegetarian Lasagne

    I don't know if I have posted this beofre, but I searched on it and found nothing.

    Vegetarian Lasagne

    Instant lasagne sheets (or precooked if you prefer)
    350gm mushrooms, sliced
    1 green capsicum, diced
    1 medium/large Spanish/red onion, diced
    1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
    Fresh basil, chopped
    440gm tin chopped tomatoes, drained
    *440gm tin kidney beans or borlotti beans, drained – optional
    1 bunch spinach. (you can use silverbeet, but spinach works better)
    500-700gm sliced pumpkin or sweet potato, steamed
    Large jar (700gm?) of your favourite pasta sauce. I prefer Barilla but the large size jars are hard to find.
    Tasty cheese, shredded (I use low fat, as there is a lot of cheese in this recipe)
    Extra virgin olive oil.

    Heat a conventional oven to 180 degrees Celcius.

    In a large saucepan, sauté the onions and garlic in 1tbsp olive oil.
    Add mushrooms, capsicum, chopped tomatoes, beans if using, and stir to combine.

    Don’t worry if it looks like its not all going to fit in the saucepan, it will once the mushrooms shrink a bit!

    Add pasta sauce and basil and cook til everythings cooked through. Set aside.

    Layer into a ceramic lasagne dish as follows
    Pasta
    Pumpkin slices and shredded cheese
    Pasta
    Spinach leaves & pasta sauce mix




    Continue til the dish is full, finishing with a spinach & tomato layer. Cover with cheese.

    Cover the dish with Aluminium foil and bake for 30 minutes.
    Remove the aluminium foil cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.

    Rayray, sounds very yummo - I love lasagne but havent actually tried vege lasagne. Thanks for posting this recipe. I think I might be buying some lasagne sheets on my next shopping trip!

    Approximately how big does it end up being using the above amounts of each ingredient? (as in how many people do you think it would feed?)

    We only have a small casserole dish - silly me broke our bigger lasagne dish, so I might need to make the quantities smaller to fit in our dish. Dont worry if you dont know, I can probably just guess the smaller quantities, lol, but I was just curious about how big it ends up as with the quantities you listed?

    Its quite big. It feeds 6 easily, would prob stretch to 8.
    I have the largeset maxwell and williams lasagne dish - I think its 40cm long or thereabouts.

    I am sure you could halve the recipe, or make the sauce component, and freeze the leftovers for pasta sauce?

    DD and I made this last week. She hid it at the back of the fridge and had it for lunch the next day.

    Massive thumbs up Ray!
