|Cheesy vegetable lasagne|
Make no mistake, this dish is harder work than a regular meaty lasagne (rather than being difficult to make, there's just more "bits" to this sauce). There's saucy layers, a ricotta layer, a spinach layer, and also pumpkin, that I feel makes it all the more special. This is as colourful as it is tasty, and i feel that although there's plenty of dairy, it's still quite a nutritious dish! Most definitely a complete meal (even though it was not served as so above!)
The pumpkin was never a part of my veggie lasagne, which I've made a few versions of over the years, but my mate Becky (also an ex house-mate) had added some mashed pumpkin to the ricotta layer of a veggie lasagne she'd made, which was awesome! So I decided to add it as an extra layer on top of the ricotta/cheese layer, which worked really well!
