About this recipe:Loads of lovely vegetables make this vegetarian lasagne absolutely delicious. You could play around with the types and proportions of vegetables used... feel free to make it a 'broccoli lasagne', for example, just by omitting the courgette, green pepper and carrot and adding another head of broccoli instead. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add lasagne sheets and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When oil is hot add broccoli, carrots, onions, peppers, courgette and garlic. Saute for 7 minutes; set aside.
Place flour in a medium saucepan and gradually whisk in milk until well blended. Bring to the boil over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, or until thick, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper; cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in spinach. Reserve a ladleful of the spinach mixture. In a small bowl combine cottage and ricotta cheeses; stir well.
Spread a ladleful of spinach mixture in the bottom of the prepared dish. Layer lasagne sheets, ricotta mixture, vegetables, spinach mixture and 3/4 of the mozzarella cheese, ending with lasagne sheets. Top with reserved spinach mixture, remaining mozzarella cheese and remaining parmesan cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Cool for approximately 10 minutes before serving.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
I found this to be quite a labour intensive recipe I ended up with loads of pans and a kitchen that looked like a bomb had dropped
Having said that this Lasagne was beautiful really nice my family enjoyed it.
I will definitely make it again but be more attentive when it comes to preparation. I would definitely recommend it, its lovely
