5 Vegetable Lasagne

Last night I just had to have some of this spinach....our bright lights chard is growing so well.

I didn't have time to do much other than a quick lasagne. Getting my elder daughter to make the pasta sheets was a huge time saver and being able to take out a ready made tomato pasta sauce from the freezer cut the cooking time even more. Now, count with me to see how many veggies I snuck in for my youngest child and a very reluctant veggie eater.

The sauce contains tomatoes (1) carrots (2) celery (3).

Once the beef mince was cooked in the sauce I added 3 grated courgettes (4) and when cooked put a small layer to the bottom of the oven dish. Then a layer of fresh pasta. Then all the spinach (5) which had been rinsed and chopped really fine. I crumbled 2 rounds of low fat feta cheese onto the spinach then added another layer of pasta.

The rest of the beef mince went on top then a nice layer of grated cheese and (for those who have cholestrol problems don't read any further!) I poured over 250ml of cream.

After baking for 30 minutes it was deliciously rich and creamy with a yummy flavour from all the veggies. It got a thumbs up from everyone.
