Method

  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.

This was really tasty..was trying to use up courgettes and so didn't have the exact ingredients. Crumbled a packet of feta in with the courgette and cheddar . Was worried that it might be too dry but it was really nice and the jiuce from the courgette keep it nice and moist. Used a tin of cherry tomato sauce which wroked well too. Might try adding mushrooms next time. Definatley a 'do-er again-er'

Really great recipe. Amazingly delish. For the courgette mixture, I grated the courgette, added one leek, shredded, instead of the onion and also 250g of mushrooms, halved and sliced. Since I have a good non stick pan and it all contains a lot of water, I didn't need to add any oil, I just dry-fried it. I did, however, double the amount of cheddar as I think 50g is too little for a whole lasagne - this worked well. I used Loyd Grossman Tomato & Basil pasta sauce since this was on special offer on Ocado when I did my shop and the jar was the right size - this was delicious.

Just made this. It was delicious. I didn't miss the meat at all. used tom & garlic pasta sauce. Tasted a lot like spinach & ricotta cannelloni. It was a right pain in the a** grating the courgettes mind. probs whack them in the food processor nxt time. will make again!!!!

Didn't use half the amount of lasagne sheets it called for, only used 4. Needed lots of seasoning and even then it was not all that interesting tasting. Made my own tomato sauce for it and I highly recommend making your own. Will not be repeating as it really wasn't impressive.

very tasty and easy (the most annoying part is grating the courgettes). just added 200g of ham to the courgette mix and everyone loved it!

Was surprised how nice this was since my only experience of vegetable lasagne or cannelloni before was the ricotta and spinach type ready meals that I didn't enjoy! Wife liked it too

Lovely :) I used homemade tomato sauce - a Goodfood batch recipe, and homegrown courgettes (which I grated and salted/drained) first. (I think a shop bought pasta sauce would be too artificially strong). We will be eating this a lot over the next few weeks with the zillions of courgettes from our polytunnel. We are not vegetarians but prefer this to a meat lasagne !
