  • 1 red capsicum, diced

  • 100g mushrooms

Method


Step 1. Cook filling

Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Bring a frying pan to medium heat. Add a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and sauté all vegetables, except for the baby spinach for approximately 4mins. Add lentils, dried oregano or mixed herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Add the tinned tomatoes, bring to the boil then simmer for 5-7 minutes to thicken the sauce. Finally, add the baby spinach and mix through until wilted. Remove from heat and set aside


Step 2. Make Lasagne

In a baking dish, layer a third of the mince to cover the base. Top with a single layer of raw eggplant strips, 1/3 of the ricotta, and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat again, ensuring the final layer is the remaining mozzarella


Step 3. Cook Lasagne

Bake for 25 minutes until the cheese is nice and golden. Rest for 5-10 minutes and serve
