    Used fresh lasagne sheets rather than tubes, made it far less fiddly to prepare. Really tasty mid-week supper enjoyed by adults and kids alike.  -  13 Mar 2013


    Really excellent! A quick tasty recipe. I used dry pasta and cooked it covered for 30 minutes and then uncovered for 20 minutes. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes and you can't go wrong.  -  12 Dec 2015


    Loved this recipe, followed it to the letter. Whole family loved how creamy it was, if not a bit sickly, good with some fresh veg to make it feel healthier!!  -  02 Jul 2015
