    About this recipe: A unique take on lasagne that is bursting with flavour. The type of sausage you use is really up to you, and really makes the flavour of this dish. If you prefer, you can make your own white sauce instead of using shop-bought cheese sauce.

    Serves: 12 

    • 500g dried lasagne sheets
    • 450g smoked sausage, quartered lengthways and sliced
    • 450g skinless chicken breast fillets - cut into chunks
    • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon dried sage
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 2 sticks celery, chopped
    • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
    • 2 (350g) tubs fresh shop-bought cheese sauce
    • 200g grated mozzarella cheese
    • 40g grated Parmesan cheese
