  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.

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.

Instantly became a family favourite. I followed the recipe exactly and have made it several times with no problems whatsoever. It's really impressed veggie friends who confess that they sometimes get bored of veggie lasagne being served up to them. This one is different though and I've had to pass the recipe on several times. The spinach topping is delicious... I think this is what makes all of the difference.

It became quite watery/juicy when I made it but due to the passata it was still full of flavour, so not a problem. Nice and easy recipe for a quick lasagna but definitely not the best lasagna I've ever had.

One of the best recipe ! Lots of our clients are vegetarians, we deliver to them a personalised menu like this one:

While I enjoyed this, I found the topping rather lacking and the dish as a whole is slightly, dare I say it, forgettable. The filling saves it from being 3 stars. Tip? Bump up the seasoning for added oomph.

We tried this recipe and found that if you keep it simpler it works even better. It doesn't need all those different elements just a few key ingredients. We don't add in the pasta sheets to keep it gluten free.

I changed the recipe slightly and it turned out very good. What I used: 2 Tbsp olive oil 2 cloves garlic minced 1 medium eggplant diced into sugar cube size chunks 1 medium zucchini diced into sugar cube size chunks 3 bell peppers (any color) diced into chunks 1 medium onion diced 1/2 tsp red chili flakes salt and pepper to taste 150g fresh spinach cut into thin strips 600g low fat cottage cheese 3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese equivalent 6 lasagna noodles Good quality pasta sauce 2 TBSP pine nuts Heat oil. Add in garlic and cook for about a minute. Add in the eggplant, zucchini, peppers, and onions. Cook until onions start to become translucent and vegetable are slightly soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. While vegetables are cooking combine spinach, cottage cheese, and 2 Tbsp parmesan. Assemble the vegetable lasagna a previous stated. 1/2 veg mix, 1/2 pasta sauce, 1/2 noodles and repeat. Top with the cheese mixture. Sprinkle the remaining 1 Tsp parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Cover and bake for about 25 minutes. Then bake an additional 10-15 minutes until noodles are soft.

Simple and really versatile. I'm playing around with different versions e.g. adding cheese and using different vegetables. It does need salt and pepper added in, I think. I also found it better to roast all the vegetables together in the oven before adding them in.

We really enjoyed this. I made a few alterations to fit with what was in the cupboard - for 2 people to make the tomato based part I browned a chopped onion and a crushed clove of garlic then added 1 small aubergine 1 courgette 4 sundried tomatoes some mushrooms half a jar plain passata fresh basil and oregano a beef stock cube half a tin of green lentils and then made the rest as per the recipe and it worked pretty well and wasn't too bland.

The topping was horrendous but the filling was good.
