  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan. Fry the aubergine for 5 mins until softened, then tip into a bowl.

Lush recipe. I roasted peppers in oven first and added some chilli flakes, to spice it up. Everyone loved it.

I made this today, instead of using passata I used 2 tins of chopped tomato which I added a bit of sugar and tomatoe purée to and blended it!! I also added olives instead mushrooms, courgettes and red onion. It is very tasty and I will most Definatley making it again!

Lovely recipe, easy to make and tastes great! I added some lardons for a bit of extra meaty protein.

Absolutely lovely :) made this tonight for me and my boyfriend. Will deffinately be making it again! We didn't have any ricotta so used soft cheese similar to philadelphia instead. We used dried pasta sheets and next time will use fresh as it took nearly 1hr in the oven.

Good base recipe - made for adaptation. We used sweet potatoes, courgettes and a hold hunk of other veg to make it more of a 10 veg lasagne! We also added Italian herbs and some chilli too, to give it a kick - found it very odd there wasn't any herbs in. Overall, a fair recipe. Topping was good, especially with a sprinkling of nutmeg!

This turned out quite plain to start with, but I added plenty of seasoning, and that made quite the difference:

I liked the recipe so I gave it a try last night. It did not turn out as I expected. A bit bland. I am not making it again. sorry

Just made this. It was OK, but I wish it had a bit of a kick to it!

I haven't tried it but please note: PARMESAN IS NOT VEGETARIAN! This recipe should either be in the non-vegetarian section or the ingredients should be changed to read "vegetarian parmesan alternative". Any cheese actually called parmesan contains animal rennet and is therefore no suitable for veggies.

Made this yesterday and it was yummy. Altered a couple of things though. Used Lloyd Grossman's bacon & tomato pasta sauce instead of passata. Bought a large jar of pre-cooked red peppers and added those-from Sainsburys where the olive section is set out- and doubled the ricotta cheese and instead of parmesan, I had Emmental in the fridge so used that up. It went down a treat with french bread and green salad.
