    I absolutely love love this recepie. I make a cauli sauce and use sweet potatoe instead for the lasagna sheets. This makes it gluten and grain free lasagna. A favourite in our house. Big Smile

  • Was delicious! It made heaps

    Was delicious! It made heaps of sauce and not much of bechemel sauce so had left over 'not meat sauce'. having said that when I joined it all together the flavour ratio was good but I had to be sparing during construction. I used BBQ sauce as I didn't have worstershire sauce.

  • Made this for a luncheon

    Made this for a luncheon yesterday.  It was a bit fiddly and I found it a bit bland however we had it reheated for dinner and the flavours seemed to have developed a bit by then.  I'lll try this again because we liked the idea of a lentil based lasagne recipe.  Thank you for the recipe.
