This recipe is a bit of a cheat as it uses a few shop-bought ingredients, but it's still a healthy alternative to the usual sauce - and cheese-laden lasagne and includes 6 portions of your 5-a-day!


Lighter Veggie Lasagne

  • 2 sheets of ready rolled ‘light’ puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp shop-bought green pesto
  • 1 aubergine
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 150g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 large vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced
  • 170g jar of marinated artichokes, drained
  • Basil leaves, to serve

How to make Lighter Veggie Lasagne

1. Preheat oven to 200°C.

2. Start by preparing the aubergine, peppers and sweet potatoes, washing and slicing everything into 1cm thick slices.

3. Pop the sliced veggies onto a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and roast in the pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes until softened.

4. Meanwhile, cut each pastry sheet into four pieces, 5cm x 3.5cm and place on a lightly greased baking tray. Brush with egg and sprinkle with parmesan and a little nutmeg.

5. Prick just 4 of the pastry pieces with a fork.

6. Bake all pastry pieces for 10 minutes until light golden, then set aside to cool and turn the oven down to 180°C.

7. Next, spread the pricked pastry sheets with the pesto, then layer each with the sliced roasted vegetables, sliced mushrooms, tomato and artichoke. Season with black pepper.

8. Place the other piece of pastry, cheese-side up, on top and return to oven for 5 minutes to heat through.
Serve as individual lasagnes with basil on top and salad on the side.
