  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Deseed the peppers, halve, then cut into large chunks. Trim ends off aubergines, then cut into slices about ½cm thick. Lightly grease 2 large baking trays, then place peppers and aubergines on top. Toss with the olive oil, season well, then roast for 25 mins until lightly browned.

Top with a layer of lasagne, then drizzle over a quarter of the white sauce. Repeat until you have 3 layers of pasta.
  3. To finish, spoon remaining white sauce over the pasta, making sure the whole surface is covered. Scatter mozzarella over the top with the tomatoes. Bake for 45 mins until bubbling and golden.

Not to be a moaner but some of the steps are not clear at all and there is some ambiguity.. which always gets on my nerves whenever someone writes anything!

It says use 1/2 of the sauce in the main recipe list, so when it says use 1/4 in the method, does that mean use 1/4 of 1/2, meaning 1/8 of the overall sauce? You see what I mean....

Also, it does not specify how much veg to put on the bottom layer, and I have taken it to mean 1/3 as it wantgs 3 layers.. This needs clearing up too.

I am assuming it means use 1/2 of the sauces, and will be gutted if that doesn't work out.

I normally do a much loved meat lasagne but will make this vegetarian recipe again as it is very tasty. I used red/yellow peppers and added 2 courgette to the mix. I also added a tub of cottage cheese, as mentioned in a previous comment. I did seem to use every utensil, tray, container in my kitchen but the upside is that I now have a white sauce and a tomato sauce ready in the freezer for another lasagne. This is a great dish to prepare ahead and the left overs microwave well the next day.

Despite several crises, e.g. using dried pasta sheets , it turned out wonderfully in the end. The assembled dish looked very dry as I omitted the layers of white sauce , but pouring 400 ml of stock over the top and leaving it overnight softened the lasagne sheets. I did put white sauce on the top. Lovely tasting recipe.

Since making this several months ago, we have never gone back to a traditional meat lasagne. The smell of the veg roasting in the oven is to die for.. As well as aubergine , we add courgettes, carrot, and add green and yellow peppers to the red. One tip you may like to try is once the White sauce is thickened, add a tub of cottage cheese to the sauce,it is delicious and makes the sauce even more thick and yummy. We also add a teaspoon of mustard powder to give it a little kick,. Final tip is to make it the day before, for some reason it tastes even better a day later. One of our favourites, defo 5 stars !

Without doubt our families favourite Lasagna recipe (and we're all meat eaters) - although I do tweak it slightly .. I add a medium red onion, some oven dried tomatoes and two courgettes to the roasting veg, all cut up into similar sizes. I've used grated cheddar on the top when I haven't had mozzarella and i've also added 50g grated Parmesan to the white sauce before now. Either way is always good. I love to find a good base recipe like this one that can be tweaked! Additionally, the sauces made from scratch are still delicious after freezing. A winner of a recipe.

This was so good! I replaced the Aubergine with cubed sweet potato & butternut squash, and made my white sauce with Quark.

Hope the comment saying to freeze after cooking is right. Not sure how I will reheat this and I hsve made it for a special occasion. Fingers crossed. Wish the recipe would give detailed advice as to this point.

Is the tomato and white sauce in this recipe already been halved or do we have to have the recipe provided?

I have made this recipe this morning and I must say it came wonderfull.The only thing I added was some milk to soak the lasagne sheets as I did not use fresh ones.The result was excellent.It is also very filling although it did not contain any meat.Well done and I must say that every time I follow your recipes I always have great results.Thankyou.

I love this recipe. I usually add one extra aubergine to make a bit more, and I use cheaper dry lasagne sheets. Have sometimes substituted the mozzarella for cheddar which works well. Following the tip, I always make more sauce and freeze it for another time!

Very nice and filling, the lasagne was gorgeous! My son did most of the dinner so him and me made it all ourselves. Tip- We don't like wine as a family so we added Vegetable Stock to the mix instead. It was lovely and I highly recommend this recipe! :)

I made this today for my family. I'm an amateur cook with hardly any experience. Whilst my wife supervised, I did all the heavy lifting. I was very impressed with the end result. All the lasagne was polished. There was nothing left. Tip - taste the vegetables to see whether they're seasoned before adding tomato sauce on the first layer

I'm going to try this on Friday for a veggie friend, also going to give this to the meat eaters with a duck leg....... I think aubergines cooked well are the best veg. I'll update after tasting....

Me and my partner love this recipe although we substitute the aubergine for carrots which works really well. It's quite time consuming, buts worth the effort and keeps very well.

busymummy7's picture

when do you add the halved cherry tomatoes??

KazaM's picture

At what point would you freeze this recipe please?

badass01's picture

after cooking it and letting it completely cool down.

I'm a little muddled! Does this recipe for the veg lasagne, made 2 lasagnes and sauce for both, or one lasagne with sauce left to make another another time? Thank you!!

This recipe partners with Classic Lasagne on this site. The idea being that you make one quantity of each sauce, then use half of each for a meat lasagne and a veggie lasagne for larger gatherings, parties etc.
