  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.

Very easy and very tasty. My 3 sons (2, 4 and 5) and my carnivorous husband loved it!!

I've made this a few times and we love it. It's surprisingly delicious and filling. I find it a little dry though as we prefer things with more sauce, so I use more tomato sauce than suggested and more ricotta and cheddar on the topping, but use the suggested amount of courgettes.

Yummy scrummy! Pretty much the same recipe as the Olive magazine one (for two persons). Really delicious. I always make my own pasta sauce from a 500ml carton of passata with onion, garlic, mixed herbs, ginger and chilli and used this. It was delicious!

delish!!! i used the magimax to slice the courgettes and used fresh pasta (just soaked in boiling water for 5mins) and no issues with sticking. everyone was impressed with how the courgettes stayed nice as they still had a bite to them. i did put extra cheese on top and baked for 20mins. both hubby and bro-in-law wanted to know when i was making it again!!!!

We all enjoyed this, I will definitely make it again. I prepared this ahead so didn't heat the sauce first. Made with one giant overgrown courgette from the garden, and half fat cheese, but it still tasted fabulous. Healthy and economical- it doesn't get better than that!

I make this quite often but use marscapone instead of ricotta which makes it much more calorific but also a lot more tasty and creamy! This has to be one of my favourite dishes because it is fairly easy to make (apart from the laborious grating of the courgettes) and also tastes amazing! I freeze what's left into portions and they keep really well in the freezer.

Excellent. Easy recipe. I used garlic and herb cream cheese instead of ricotta and took the advice about not cooking the lasagna and adding some bacon. Yummy!!

Delicious and a hit with the kids! Will be making this again.

Not being a veggie and expecting such guests for lunch I was panicking wondering what to make. I have just made this as a trial with my sons as testers and they loved it. I added a bit of tarragon to the courgettes and mushrooms to the sauce and used gluten free lasagne (coeliac In the family) and it was a great success! It will be on my lunch menu, Thanks!
