    Healthy Lasagne, anyone have a recipe?

    Hi all,

    I lurve lasagne but am struggling to find a descent recipe that is really low in fat or at least a healthier alternative without having to use a microwave readymade version, I know its the cheese thats the worst part but I do love a good creamy lasagne!

    cheers and my tummy is rumbling now thinking about it! yum yum

    Low fat dairylea cheese can be used in the sauce rather than "proper" cheese. It sounds gross but actually tastes nice. my kids love it!

    Hi Hammyswife

    I'm veggie and I use this recipe. It's hardly fat free but it's lower in fat than a fully fledged meat/whole milk/ full fat cheese version, so it might be worth you trying it to see if you like it.

    1tsp olive oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    Half an aubergine roughly chopped
    1 carrot, finely chopped
    4 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
    400g soya mince or minced quorn
    Freshly ground black pepper
    315ml red wine
    400g tin chopped plum tomatoes
    1tbsp tomato purée
    1 bay leaf
    ½ tsp dried oregano
    2 courgettes, thinly sliced lengthways
    1 jar of roasted red peppers in brine
    8 sheets of lasagne

    For the cheese sauce:

    500ml semi-skimmed milk
    A good grating of whole nutmeg
    Salt and pepper
    3tbsp cornflour
    1tsp English mustard
    60g reduced-fat cheddar cheese

    For a low carb version, I've substituted the pasta with slices of aubergine, pepper and courgette! Sounds weird, but it works!! xx

    I use water to cook instead of oil in everything i cook I hate the grease, for lasagne try and spread low fat phillidelphia on your pasta sheets and for cheese sauce and use low fat cheese to top

    Try turkey mince instead of beef - much lower in fat!

    Quorn mince is good not much fat and still tasty.
