Ingredients for Easy vegetarian lasagne

  • 2 x 400g cans cherry tomatoes* or crushed tomatoes
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g (2/3 cup) plain flour
  • 1L (4 cups) full-fat milk

    Easy vegetarian lasagne, How to Make

    • Step 1
      Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a 5cm deep, 20 x 30cm baking dish.
    • Step 2
      Drain tomatoes, reserving juice. Place juice in a pan with butter, flour and milk. Whisk over low heat for 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Cook 2 minutes further and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
    • Step 3
      Place 1/4 of the sauce in the prepared dish, swirl through 1 tablespoon pesto and cover with a sheet of lasagne.
    • Step 4
      Add a little more sauce and another tablespoon pesto, then cover with half the mozzarella, half the drained tomatoes, 1/3 of the parmesan and a lasagne sheet. Repeat this layer. Cover with remaining sauce and sprinkle with remaining parmesan. Dot vine-ripened tomatoes on top. Bake for about 35 minutes or until cooked through and golden on top. Rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with salad.

    Notes:
    * Canned cherry tomatoes are from Italian grocers. * Buffalo mozzarella is from selected delis and specialist cheese stores.
