Tip

This is a really simple but delicious lasagne that you can make quickly as you can be doing something while each part of the lasagne is cooking.  Serve with salad and perhaps some garlic bread.

For a cheesier option add a layer of grated cheese betwen the ricotta and the tomato.  Try adding baby spinach leaves with the basil to increase the green, or add a tin of kidney beans/chick peas in with the tomato sauce when it is cooking for some extra bulk.

THIS CAN BE MADE IN TM31 and TM5 machines

 I hope you enjoy this with your families tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Very nice - thank you The

    Submitted by ScottTas on 25. June 2016 - 19:10.

    Very nice - thank you tmrc_emoticons.) The crispy topping is awesome! Will definitely make again.

     

    Notes to me: I added finely grated sweet potato and zucchini in for the last 2mins of tomato sauce time - do this again. Use a little less nutmeg next time and more lasagne sheets. Added grated mozzarella in between basil and tomato. Add spinach with basil next time. Use largest casserole dish. Cooked at 200degC first 10mins then looked to be browning too quickly so reduced to 180degC. Cooked for 40mins total. Would comfortably serve 6 with garlic bread and salad.

    I really liked this recipe! I changed a few things though. I added more veggies zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower and carrot, potato, and sweet potato to the tomato sauce and chopped it up. I especially liked the topping. Will make again.

  • This is a great recipe - I

    Submitted by PMH on 8. April 2016 - 15:18.

    This is a great recipe - I added spinach with the basil leaves and kidney beans to the tomato sauce as per tips at the bottom and it was perfect.  I found I had too much bechamel sauce and didn't use it all (I was only worried it would overflow when cooking) but that may have been because of the extra bulk by adding the beans - my lasagne was quite tall !!!  I didn't have pine nuts for the topping and it was fine without it and I used panko breadcrumbs because I had some open.  (just reading back on the ingredients - where is the paprika meant to go ?  I obviously didn't use it !)  Will be a regular so thank you !!
