    Aunty Dotty's Note:

    I took this from a lasagna packet and slightly modified - the original called for pumpkin but I wanted a lower GI meal. Try both sometime. Also, you could really take the total weight of veggies and make up whatever mix you felt like. BTW, this is a really filling meal! If anyone freezes this let me know how it works too!

    Bechamel Sauce

    Vegetable Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180°C.
    2. 2
      To make bechamel, melt butter in a pan over low heat.
    3. 3
      Stir in flour and cook for one minute.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat, add bay leaves and nutmeg and gradually stir in milk - I use a whisk from here.
    5. 5
      Return to low heat and keep whisking and stirring for about 5 minutes, should thicken nicely. Put aside, season and remove bay leaves.
    6. 6
      Now heat oil in a large frypan and add onion and garlic.
    7. 7
      Cook over med heat about 2 minutes, then add sweet potato. Cook another 3 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add mushrooms, oregano and zucchini and cook another 5 minutes til veggies are just softening. Remove from heat and add tomatoes and paste.
    9. 9
      To assemble, place half the veggie mix in the bottom of a large shallow oven dish. ( I used a 26cm x 20cm dish, 5cm deep and it was only just big enough! ).
    10. 10
      Top with 1/3 lasagna sheets, cover with all the ricotta and 1/4 the parmesan.
    11. 11
      Top with another 1/3 lasagna sheets, cover with other half veggies and 1/4 parmesan.
    12. 12
      Top with rest of lasagna sheets, cover with the bechamel and rest of parmesan - make sure completely covered.
    13. 13
      Bake for 45 minutes or until nicely golden and tender.
    14. 14
      Serve with a big crunchy salad!

      This was a lovely, flavoursome and REALLY filling lasagne! I added a bit of red wine to the veggie sauce bit, and also increased the garlic proportions.
