Vegetarian Lasagne

Serves 1
Total Time
1 Hour 15 Minutes
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 clove of garlic
100g of asparagus, each cut into three pieces
100g of frozen peas
100g of frozen broad beans
100g of pesto
Zest of 1 lemon
150g of mascarpone
50g of vegetarian hard cheese, finely grated
salt and pepper
6 lasagne sheets
4 tbsp of milk
Green salad, to serve
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180C (fan 160C, gas mark 4). Grab yourself a smallish ovenproof dish.

Step 2

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Crush in the garlic clove and tip in the asparagus. Cook for two minutes, then stir in the frozen peas and broad beans. Cook for another minute until the peas and broad beans have thawed.

Step 3

Take the pan off the heat and chuck the greens into a bowl. Mix through the pesto, lemon zest, 100g mascarpone, half the grated cheese and some salt and pepper.

Step 4

Spoon a third of the mix into the ovenproof dish, then top with two sheets of lasagne. Repeat the process until all the filling and pasta are used up. For the final layer, mix the remaining mascarpone with the milk. Pour this over the top of the pasta sheets and sprinkle over the remaining hard cheese.

Step 5

Bake for 35–40 minutes until the pasta has no resistance when you prick it with a fork. Leave to rest for five minutes before diving in. Serve with a green salad.
