This is a recipe which I change every time I make it. Usually, it contains whatever vegetables I have in the pantry as well as some Quorn/soya mince to fill it out a bit. I like it to resemble meaty lasagne but without the meat. Strange I know, but that is how it is with me. It is a hearty family meal which is great any time of year served with garlic bread and salad – what more can you ask for. The problem is I don’t weigh any of the ingredients out so I am guessing here. I love making lasagne but I hate the washing up afterwards. Sometimes I add lentils or beans of some description into the ragù sauce to include some more protein in the meal. Also, you can change the cheese and use parmesan as well as cheddar cheese to make the lasagne for a special occasion.
