  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put a pan of water on to boil, then cook the lasagne sheets for about 5 mins until softened, but not cooked through. Rinse in cold water, then drizzle with a little oil to stop them sticking together.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan, then fry the onion. After 3 mins, add the courgettes and garlic and continue to fry until the courgette has softened and turned bright green. Stir in 2/3 of both the ricotta and the cheddar, then season to taste. Heat the tomato sauce in the microwave for 2 mins on High until hot.

  3. In a large baking dish, layer up the lasagne, starting with half the courgette mix, then pasta, then tomato sauce. Repeat, top with blobs of the remaining ricotta, then scatter with the rest of the cheddar. Bake on the top shelf for about 10 mins until the pasta is tender and the cheese is golden.

I love this recipe - It's delicious and so easy. Tomato sauce is so simple and quick to make though don't buy it!

Can you share your recipe? :)

This recipe is quick and easy, managed to make it in under an hour. The tomato sauce adds a nice kick of acidity to this creamy dish. I used diced tomato (with sugar, salt, herbs, pepper and garlic) as the tomato sauce. It turned out a bit watery but thickened after a night in the refridgerator.

Made this last night, it was delicious and so easy. You can change up the taste with different pasta sauces, I used arrabbiata so had a nice chilli kick. But the best thing about it is the slightly crunchy texture of the courgettes. An absolute winner I will never use meat for lasagne again.

I made this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought it was very tasty bearing in mind there's not much to it. I would squeeze out the liquid from the courgettes next time before cooking them, definitely making this one again.

Another good way to use a glut of courgettes. Mine had to be dairy free so those that wanted, sprinkled grated cheese on at end. I would put my lasagne in raw next time because the pre-boiling and then faffing about with hot, sticky sheets of lasagne was annoying!

Very tasty, mixed the cheddar with parmesan. I will add some extra sheets and sauce for my hungry family next time. Used passata instead of tomato sauce, added chili flakes, italian herbs and a tsp. of sugar.

I have never left a review for a recipe before and I use this website a lot but I made this tonight and it was stunning! I tweaked it: made my own tomato sauce, 2 garlic cloves instead of one, mascarpone instead of ricotta (Aldi didn't have ricotta), topped it with fat free natural yoghurt and sun dried tomatoes. My partner said it was like something from a restaurant and he is hard to please. A really, really tasty dinner that I will make again.

Do you have a good recipe for your own tomato sauce which you could share? I grow tomatoes but have never managed to make a nice tomato sauce. I use jars of tomato sauce - I like Lloyd Grossman sauces bought when they are on offer!

Really delicious! Made this last night when I saw the great reviews. Was a bit dubious about a veggie lasagne but it was really good and very filling! So easy to make - though the grating took a while (I also squeezed out the juice before cooking). I put in uncooked sheets and cooked at extra 15 mins at 180c. Would defo make again and try adding different veggies
