Method

  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. Fry the mushrooms in the remaining oil for a few mins until golden, then mix with the aubergine and peppers. Spoon half of the veg into a 20 x 30cm baking dish. Spoon over half the passata, then arrange a layer of lasagne sheets on top.

  2. Spread the rest of the veg over the pasta, cover with passata and another layer of pasta. Drain any excess liquid from the spinach and mix together with the ricotta and half the Parmesan. Spoon over the top of the pasta, then sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan and pine nuts. Cover with foil, bake for 20 mins, uncover, then bake for another 10 mins until browned. Serve with a crisp green salad.

Great lasagne. I only used 2 roasted peppers and i'm glad I did as I think 4 would have made the dish too rich.

Carnivore husband loved this dish. I made a couple of alterations to this recipe though: Added a splash of balsamic vinegar to the vegetables and finished the layering with sliced courgette before spooning on the spinach & ricotta

My boyfriend and I found this recipe in a 101 Healthy eats book by the BBC Good Food and decided to make it. It was very tasty but there did seem like quite a lot of prep work to get it ready for the oven. We aren't vegetarians and it isn't particularly low calorie - so I'm not sure we'll be making it again instead of regular lasagne but we now have this veggie recipe in our repertoire so if a vegetarian ever comes for dinner - I know what I'll be cooking for them!

I enjoyed this meal, it's a great way to get your five a day, and can be made earlier in the day and cooked when you're hungry. I did however feel like it was missing something. Next time I might add quite a bit more seasoning, or try adding some chilli and cumin for a bit of extra flavour. It was a large portion as well, too much for me to finish. Would be nice with crusty bread.

Lovely recipe, although I used tinned tomatoes instead of the passata and chopped and added garlic and onion too. Was nice with a bit of home made garlic bread! Overall an easy, healthy recipe! Would recommend!!

Just a heads up to people - parmesan isn't vegetarian.

Parmesan is not vegetarian, but the lasagne with feta worked quite well!

This recipe really didn't do it for us. It was quite "claggy", I'm not sure if this was due to the pasta sheets not being correctly cooked or if it was the topping but it was not very pleasant. In order to brown the pine nuts it needed longer than 10 minutes but this dried out the topping, making it taste quite dry. I would make again but with changes - I'd use a normal cheese sauce on top as I don't think this version saves you many calories and is certainly poorer in taste. I think Delia's veggie lasagne is a much better alternative to a meat version, although is more time consuming.

I'm not a vegetarian but wanted to try this recipe. Didn't follow recipe completely. Took out the aubergine and put in roasted butternut squash and courgette, added chilli to the passata and used a cheese sauce between the layers of lasagne. Was delicious and even nicer heated up the next day!!
