    • I made this vegetarian lasagne last year for a W.I. quiz night. It was a huge success and I have been asked to make it again for this year's event. If its good enough for the discerning ladies of the WI, that's a sure sign of how good it is.

    • I had to part make this night before to save on time for day after as cooking for just 1 vegetarian. So I made the red sauce but my carrots stayed very aldante and so cooked them longer until they had started to soften Leaving out the cream as i googled and wasnt sure i could part cook with cream then reheat without it splitting do i didnt risk It for my guest. Let it go cold then chilled till next day. On cooking day i added the cold cream to cold red sauce and mixed well. then followed rest of recipe used grated mixed cheese montery jack, mozzarella, Cheddar for topping bought already done in bag from supermarket. Prepared it fully all ingredients are cold anyway and sat in fridge for 2 hrs until it was time to for lunch. My guest said it was nice and now it's late I'm doing a Nigella raided fridge and eating leftovers cold and I have to say very impressed as a meat eater this is lovely doesn't need anything else I will add this to my meat free Mondays list which is my new yrs promise to eat more veg.
