  • 8 sheets fresh lasagne

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 3-4 mins over a medium-high heat. Add the sausage chunks and cook for another 5 mins to brown all over. Add the garlic and cook for 1 min before stirring in the cream, mustard, chilli flakes and seasoning. Cook for another 2 mins, then stir in the basil.

There wasn't enough sauce to fill the lasagne sheets unless you have 1 each. It does state in the ingredients section 8 sheets though and in the picture I note there are seven. There wasn't enough sauce to put on top, so when baked in the oven the pasta was dry and cracked. I don't think this recipe has been tested, and would recommend doubling up on some of the ingredients.

This recipe is nice but I took on board the below comments and added one 400ml can of chopped tomatoes and reduced the amount of cream to 200ml. Serve with peas or other veg and it makes a nice, quick, tasty meal.

We really enjoyed this dish, it was so tasty, but do have to agree with the other reviewers comment about the sauce being very rich but this could be overcome by serving with lots of veg as a side.

There is not enough sauce to cook the pasta leaving dry sheets of lasagne with creamy, slimy sausage inside. Very rich and made us all feel sick.
