This is a very popular Turkish version of lasagne but not as saucy but with a wonderful thick cheese sauce. Wonderful with a salad drizzled with olive oil and lemon or with a roast chicken and roast potatoes which is how we eat it at home on a Sunday with brown sauce-its nice trust me! Its a little time consuming but well worth it-trust me. I think Nigella would be like this one-its comfort food at its best.
