  1. To make the dressing, gently heat the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and chilli together with 1 tbsp of water. Once warm, add the olives and the herbs, remove from the heat and set aside.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add the lasagne sheets and salt if you wish, then simmer for 3 mins. Meanwhile, heat the sunflower oil in a large frying pan until very hot. Add the flat cap mushrooms and fry for 1 min until they start to colour. Add mixed mushrooms and fry for 2-3 mins more. Season if you want to and set aside.

  3. Drain the lasagne sheets and put one on the base of each of four large plates. Scatter the mushroom mixture over and put a second sheet on top. Spoon over the dressing, sprinkle over the parmesan and serve immediately.

Whats not vegetarian about it? Because it is. It doesn't go as far as being Vegan though

Parmesan is not considered vegetarian due to the Rennet used in making it. (calf stomach) Seems to be a trend at the moment of people hunting down recipes with parmesan in it just to declare it non vegetarian. What a hobby!

Not vegetarian

Really enjoyed this recipe but felt there was too much olive oil in it (I was using ordinary olive oil rather than extra virgin though). Liked all the flavours together, it made it taste really light.

This is a quick meal for me and my husband after our daughter is in bed. I serve it on a bed of rocket which adds some colour to the meal. Just one thing it doesn't retain it 's heat very well so need to eat immediately after serving.
