Vegetarian Courgette Lasagne

I don’t think I can claim this recipe is great for your waistline given how much cheese sauce I put in it but the taste is definitely worth it!  I’m not usually a fan of the Quorn mince but disguised in this lasagna I don’t mind at all!  As much as I usually love having the sheets of pasta break up the layers I’ve been trying to increase the amount of veggies I eat each day and substituting pasta sheets for courgette seemed like a painless way to do it.

Ingredients

Quorn mince
Onion
Garlic
Herbs
Assorted vegetables if desired (carrots, peas..)
Tomato Sauce (I used Loyd Grossman Tomato and Basil)
1 Large Courgette
Cheese sauce (here is a link to the cheese sauce recipe)

Cook the mince in a saucepan with water (or oil if you prefer) and add the chopped onions to soften.

Prepare the vegetables and boil or steam until nearly cooked.

After draining the mince and vegetables, put them into a saucepan and add the tomato sauce and chopped/ crushed garlic.

Slice the courgette which can then either be added straight to the recipe to form a layer with more ‘bite’ or simmered for five minutes to make a softer layer.

Once everything is prepared you can begin to layer up the lasagna!IMG_7068

Cover the top of the lasagna with a layer of cheese sauce and pop in the oven for 10-15 minutes to form a brown top and serve!
