The Best Vegetable Lasagne

A large, hearty vegetable lasagne is always a great dinner idea when it’s cold outside. Serve with a huge plate of garlic bread and I feel like the night is just perfect. Lasagne is just one of those comfort foods that we all need to just eat and not count the calories. We can worry about calories another day.

  5. Once the water in the spinach dries up, then take it off the heat and set it aside to cool. Once cooled, mix it In with the cream cheese. Adjust the seasoning. Set it aside. 

  6. For the white sauce: melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and mix it well. Cook for 2-3 minutes then slowly add the milk and cook on a low heat until thickened. Set it aside. 

  7. Layer the lasagne in a 9x13 inch dish. Begin with a layer of the vegetable sauce, then top with cheese, lasagne sheets, cream cheese, then repeat the layers. End with white sauce and a layer of cheese 

  8. Bake at 220c for 30-45 minutes until golden and the cheese bubbles.
