Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C / fan oven 170°C / Gas 5.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan and add the green beans, courgette, red onion and peppers.  Cook over a medium-high heat, stirring often, until the vegetables are softened – about 4-5 minutes.  Add the cherry tomatoes and stir in the tomato sauce for lasagne with roasted onion and garlic.
  3. Tip half the vegetable mixture into a large rectangular baking dish, measuring about 26cm x 20cm.  Arrange 3 lasagne sheets on top, then spread half the creamy sauce for lasagne over them.  Repeat the layers, then sprinkle the grated mozzarella cheese evenly over the surface.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until cooked and golden brown. Allow to stand for a few minutes, then serve, garnished with a few basil leaves.
