It's pasta for supper tonight, so I fancy a Vegetable Lasagne. Lasagne is a classic Italian dish and very straightforward but delicious to produce and everyone should know how to make it. Follow this recipe and you can't go wrong.

Ingredients:- (serves 4)
2tbs vegetable oil
150g green beans - chopped
1 onion - thinly sliced
400g can of tomatoes
125g lentils - rinsed
300ml water
pinch of oregano
500g cream cheese
2 eggs - beaten
125g ready-cooked fresh lasagne sheets
2tbs grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan and then fry the beans and onions for 5 minutes,
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then add the tomatoes, lentils, water and oregano and bring to the boil.
  • Simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the lentils are tender.
  • Heat the oven to 180'C or Gas Mark 4.
  • Mix together the cream cheese and the beaten  eggs.
  • Spread half the vegetable mixture over the bottom of a large ovenproof dish and cover with a third of the lasagne sheets.
  • Pour over half the cheese mixture, then cover with another layer of lasagne sheets.
  • Make a layer with the remaining vegetable mixture, cover with remaining lasagne sheets and, finally, with the rest of the cheese mixture.
  • Sprinkle over the Parmesan and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Garnish with a few basil leaves
