Ready in 4 hours and 20 minutes
- 700g passata
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 3 roasted red peppers in brine from a jar, drained and chopped
- A small pack fresh basil, shredded
- ¼ tsp dried chilli flakes
- 300g low-fat natural cottage cheese
- 100g ricotta cheese
- 4 level tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese or vegetarian alternative
- 9 dried lasagne pasta sheets, each snapped across into 4 pieces
- 2 medium courgettes, thinly sliced lengthways
- 100g baby leaf spinach, coarsely shredded
- 1 level tbsp cornflour
- 500g fat-free natural Greek yoghurt
- 2 medium eggs, beaten
- ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
In a large bowl, mix the passata with the chopped tomatoes, peppers, basil, chilli flakes and seasoning to taste.
In a smaller bowl, mix the cottage cheese with the ricotta, half the Parmesan and a little seasoning.
Spread about one-third of the tomato sauce mixture over the base of the slow cooker pot and cover with one-third of the lasagne sheets.
Spread over half of the cottage cheese mixture, then half of the sliced courgettes and half of the shredded spinach.
Repeat the layers once more then cover with the remaining lasagne sheets and tomato sauce. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.
Mix the cornflour and a little yoghurt in a bowl to make a paste, then mix in the rest of the yoghurt, the eggs, nutmeg, remaining Parmesan and a little seasoning to taste. Pour over the lasagne, cover again and cook for 1 hour.
Serve with a side salad.
Tip: Don’t have a slow cooker? Build up the layers as above but in a shallow ovenproof dish. Top with the yoghurt mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until cooked through in an oven preheated to 200c/fan 180c/gas 6.
