Slimming World’s beef lasagne is a great family dinner and it only takes 15 minutes to prepare. 

There are only four steps in the method and the lasagne can be prepped ahead and cooked later if you like. You can cook the lasagne in one big dish but if you have smaller individual dishes it can be easier for serving. The mixture is bulked out with red pepper and courgette but you can easily swap for the veggies your family likes the most. Mushrooms, aubergine and even finely chopped cauliflower or broccoli all work well. 


  • 500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 courgette, chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed or grated
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 400g passata
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 500g fat-free natural yogurt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 12 dried lasagne sheets
  • 4 level tbsp freshly grated Parmesan
  • Mixed salad, to serve




  1. Place a non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the beef, cook for a few mins and drain off any fat in the pan. Then mix in the pepper, courgette, onion and garlic and stir-fry for 6-8 mins. Finally, add the tomatoes, passata and dried herbs, season to taste and lower the heat to medium. Cook for 12-15 mins, stirring often.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan, Gas 6). Mix the yogurt, eggs and nutmeg until smooth. Season and set aside.
  3. Spray an ovenproof dish with low-calorie cooking spray. Spoon in some of the mince mixture, top with a layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat until you have your desired number of layers and all the mince has been used. Finish with a layer of lasagne sheets then spread the yogurt mixture over the top.
  4. Sprinkle over the cheese and bake for 25-30 mins or until golden and the lasagne sheets are soft. Allow to stand for 5 mins then serve with the mixed salad.

Top tips for making Slimming World's beef lasagne

You can make this lasagne even healthier by swapping the beef mince for turkey mince or use a vegetarian alternative such as Quorn. Both are both lower in fat. If you're doing a vegetarian make sure you use a vegetarian hard cheese instead of the Parmesan.

“I like to add a little grated cheese to the creamy lasagne topping and sometimes I'll mix in some finely chopped herbs too. Chives, parsley and basil are all tasty options. If you don't like nutmeg you can simply omit or use some freshly ground black pepper.”
