Method

  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.
  2. Reduce oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Lightly oil an ovenproof serving dish (30 x 20cm). Arrange a layer of the vegetables on the bottom, then pour over a third of the tomato sauce. 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.

A little time consuming making the 2 sauces, but overall it was worth it, nothing better than making your own sauce. I would suggest adding more cheese in the middle to give it more taste.

Really tasty & easy - I did buy a tomato sauce though. Really tasty second night too. Will definately make again and maybe add more more vegetables.

Fantastic flavours, although did add a teaspoon of sugar & one of vegetable bouillon powder to the tomato sauce, & grated Parmesan & nutmeg to the white sauce. I also added courgettes & mushrooms to the vegetables. I was testing this as the vegetarian option for my brother's 50th birthday party - will definitely be using!

Very nice recipe and lovely taste. I was a little concerned whilst I was constructing the layers that there wouldn't be enough veg but there was. Saying that I may do a little more next time as I like my lasagnes quite thick. Otherwise very well received by my veggie friends and their 2 year old :-)

I made this for my housemate and I and it went down so well. I froze the rest of the portions which have defrosted well and still tastes just as good re-heated!

God awful. I used first rate organic ingredients, and it was still nothing but a disappointment.
I can understand why some people rate this well - they substitute so much of the original recipe with their own ideas... No wonder the end result tastes good! But as it stands, awful. Awful. Awful!

First time I've ever made lasagne from scratch and this one was easy to follow and SO tasty! Agree with everyone else who has said double the veg cause it shrinks - I didn't put as much aubergine in but added courgette and chestnut mushrooms too. All three of us loved it :)

I'd never made lasagne without meat...easy recipee which tasted gorgeous! I used jars of red and white sauce for speed and added some fresh garlic which I also roasted 1st. I didn't use ALL red peppers as suggested but it would have looked more colourful on the plate :-D

Loving this to bits, it is so worth all the effort, I got a new food processor and its so much fun to play with this recipe.

So tasty i used whatever left over vegetables i had in the fridge and worked so well. I put a veggie stock cube in the tomato sauce just for a bit more flavour.

Enjoy you will not regret making this.

Tried this recipe for some vegetarian friends who came over for dinner. It was FANTASTIC! I went through the comments and I agree that the veg needs to be doubled because they shrink down to practically nothing...oh and i did throw in extras..a courgette and mushrooms. The star of the dish though was the tomato sauce! Absolutely loved it! I do recommend popping in a bouillon cube to give it more depth and in case your tomatoes are on the tart side, adjusting the balance with a tablespoon of sugar is absolutely necessary! Enjoy!

A lovely change to meat lasagne. I did read other comments and added a few more vegetables, red onion, courgettes, mushrooms which felt it needed. Also added mature cheddar on the top. Delicious!

A really delicious recipe, I love the wine in the tomato sauce. I would increase the vegetables by a half, or maybe even double if it is for guests coming round because they shrink down so much. Also might add a bit more for the tomato sauce because I needed just a little bit more when making half of the suggested amount.

Lovely recipe, I have made this a couple of times now. Required extra veggies though

Was delicious. Added more vegetables to it and the tomato sauce required some sugar but it was amazing. And I agree, much better the day afterwards as well.

I noticed that several people commented on the sharpness of the tomato sauce. Try adding a teaspoon of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes.
