Fill your boots…with chorizo lasagne


With all the fantastic meal ideas currently flying around the web I thought I’d start a new feature called (drum roll please) Fill your boots.. Each week I’ll blog a meal that I’ve cooked with details on how you can recreate the magic at home. (I’m no Nigella or Delia but I’ll have a go!) Then at the end of the post I would absolutely love it, if you’d take part and share a link to a post on your blog showcasing the fantastic meals you’ve had. We can all learn something new and pick up some tasty ideas for fabulous family meals.

To start off the feature, please let me introduce you to one of my own personal favourites, Chorizo Lasagne.


1 Butternut Squash, 1 Onion , 1 Pepper, 1 Courgette, Cherry Tomatoes
Low fat cooking spray, 50g Chorizo Sausage, Small carton of Passata
6 dried Lasagne sheets, Cheddar Cheese Sauce Mix, 300ml Skimmed Milk

1. Heat the oven to Gas Mark 6
2. Chop all the vegetables, spritz with cooking spray, season well and roast in a large roasting tin for 15 minutes.

3. Add chopped chorizo, stir and cook for another 10 minutes
4. Add the passata to the roasted vegetables
5. Using a large baking dish, pour half of the mixture into dish
6. Place 3 lasagne sheets on top of the roasted vegetables and pour on the remainder of the vegetables
7. Top with the remaining lasagne sheets

7. Tip cheese sauce mix (hey, can’t make everything from scratch!) into a saucepan and mix with the milk, bring to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes. You will have incredibly thick, creamy cheese sauce
8. Pour cheese sauce mix over the lasagne
9. Bake for 35 minutes or until gorgeously golden brown

This recipe will easily serve 4 people and is best served with a crisp green salad. Enjoy! {sig}

    Wow, that sounds pretty good. A total new twist on lasagne – is it very pointy or not too bad?

      It works out at 7pp per portion and we managed to get 4 good sized portions out of it so plenty to freeze and for lunch.

    I love cooking with Chorizo, in fact I did last night. I have made Chorizo penne pasta but never thought of using it in Lasagna before, I just might have to try this! Thank you for sharing :)
