Plan to make it but it's not strictly vegetarian unless you can find veggie parmesan. Sainsbury's Basics have acceptable Italian Style Hard Cheese.

I subbed in courgette for aubergine and added a sweet pointed pepper...had no pine nuts in but i think it would have tasted amazing if i had.
Lovely, will be making again

I used whatever was in the fridge- roasted peppers, mushrooms, courgettes, red onions etc and then blitzed everything down so that the kids would not notice any "bits". They scoffed it up!! What a result.

Loved this. Used 500g of plain passata and fried an onion with the veg. Added 2 courgettes and seasoned veg with paprika and pepper. Sprinkled grated cheddar onto the spinach mix and was delicious -even loved by my 11 month old.

This recipe is not vegetarian. Parmesan? Vegetarian? In which universe!

As a vegetarian that hates mushrooms I replaced them with butternut squash and this was absolutely delicious. Always nice to find something that tastes so great that's good for you! I recommend this recipe. Really easy and my boyfriend and I both loved it.

I made this last night with a few changes and it went down a storm. Used grated cheddar instead of parmesan, and a typical garlic and onion sauce instead of the passata.

Would recommend this one and was told the next time it is being made to invite the same guests :)

The topping was beautiful, not sure I can go back to bechemal now.

This recipe needed salt or something to balance the tomatoes, and prep time took me much longer than 15 minutes. I also needed to let it bake for more than 40 minutes. We did like the topping, but weren't impressed with the rest of the lasagne, especially for the effort.

I loved this recipe but the family didnt! My family dont eat many vegetables and tend to stick to meat and two veg so this wasnt for them. I gave half to my vegetarian friends and they loved it!

This was very well received when I made it for friends who are quite fussy eaters. I doubled the recipe but found I needed to added more vegetables to get enough filling, luckily i had a bag of frozen chargrilled peppers and a jar of Tapas broad beans so I threw them in as well. The broad beans worked really well. I also added a pince of chilli flakes to the passata just to pep it up. I didn't find it dry and it tasted even better when reheated the next day for lunch. I would certainly make it again.

I have made lots of receipes from the good food site and this was the first bad one - I thought the end product was bland and definitely needed some seasoning. The amount of passata the receipe says to use is far too much and the lasagne was too sloppy for my liking. The topping was the best bit about the dish but I will be deleting this from my binder - There was not enough flavour for the amount of effort it took.

I loved this, topping wasn't dry at all. I did make some additions to the passata to make it more flavorsome. good for the whole family, my 10 month old son loved it.

Er, hello editors...parmesan is not vegetarian!

smoothiestar's picture

I made this before and it was very nice and tasty!!We had to put the pine nuts over half the lasagne no more no less cause my older brother says that he doesn't like nuts on things he likes nuts by themselves!Don't ask he's just a fussy eater!!

Loved it. I added extra veggies (but left out the aubergine as we don't like it) and cooked them for longer so they weren't too hard. Have made this quite a few times now and enjoy it every time.

Lovely lasagne. Added a tin of butter beans, two small chillies and some extra parmasan. Will definitely make again.

this recipe is really nice, i agree with what the others said though there is something lacking from the dish. maybe something like chili or paprika in the tomato sauce would give it a bit of a kick
