Now, I love Lasagne, Lasagne is my most favourite Italian meal, I have eaten it out at so many restaurants and I have even made my own, although my own consisted of cream, white sauce, cheese sauce and full fat cheese, which in my defense is absolutely gorgeous, so so yummy, but I can’t bare to think of the syn content on that, so whilst I was trailing through the Slimming World website, I can across a Lasagne recipe, so I got all the ingredients and made it 🙂

How To Cook Lasagne:
1) Pre heat your oven to 200oc/Gas Mark 6. Get a large non stick frying pan and place it over a high heat. Add the minced beef, red pepper, courgette, onion, garlic and stir fry for 6-8 minutes. Then add the tomatoes, passatta and mixed herbs. Season well, continue to the stir the ingredients and cook for another 12-15 minutes.
2) In a separate bowl, mix together to yoghurt and the eggs, until their really smooth.
3) Spoon half the meat mixture into a dish and then place lasagne sheets on top. Coat the lasagne sheets with half of the yoghurt mixture and then place the remaining meat mixture on top. Add the final lasagne sheets, cover with the remaining yoghurt mixture and top with grated parmesan.
4) Bake in the oven for 25-30minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Serve on plates with your mixed salad.
It is so so simple, and I must say it tasted so nice, the only that was different was the sauce, because it was yoghurt and egg, it was a different texture and didn’t hold so well when I cut the first piece, it’s also a different texture, its like the topping of a moussaka, that soft, light mousse style sauce.
I also made my own salad with little gem lettuces and cherry tomatoes, because I prefer that to bags of mixed salad.
