Meat free Italian..


I’m back in control and it feels good. I’ve had a good day, stuck to the foods I’d planned on eating and have being able to drink quite a bit of water. For our dinner tonight, I cooked up some Vegetable Lasagne. I saw the recipe in the Good Food booklet that the lovely Lisa sent me and it looked yummy so thought I’d give it a go.

This recipe serves 4 people (or 2 very hungry people) at 5ProPoints per portion (or 10pp per hungry person!)
It takes 20 minutes to prepare and only 35 minutes cooking time.

What you’ll need:
125g baby corn, 2 peppers, cut into chunks, 1 courgette (I replaced this with mushrooms instead), 350g passata, 8 cherry tomatoes, halved, 1 stick of celery, chopped, 1 tsp dried oregano, 6 dried lasagne sheets, 200g Philadelphia light and 50ml skimmed milk.

How to: Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 5. Blanche corn and peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes. Add in celery and mushrooms (or courgette) and blanche for a minute. Drain all vegetables, return to saucepan adding tomatoes, oregano and passata. Mix well. Using a medium sized lasagne dish pour half of the mixture into the bottom of the dish. Cover mixture with 3 lasagne sheets. Spoon on rest of vegetable mixture and arrange final 3 lasagne sheets on top. Mix together the Philadelphia and milk until smooth and spoon on top of lasagne sheets. Season well and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Serve with a mixed green salad and enjoy!

My verdict: I really enjoyed it. Very filling and the creamy Philadelphia offsets the tomatoey taste.
Hubby’s verdict: Nice but (isn’t there always a but?) a bit too cheesy for his liking and would like a bit of meat in it! {sig}

    Looks really yummy, we have same complaint in my house about no meat, my dad says same thing, so now started adding quorn mince, cant tell the difference. Or if need be then add turkey mince but only a little bit just to give the flavour/texture for my dad. Would add a couple more points but might make it bit more filling/tasty for your husband.
