Description

It is what the title says!

I googled and googled some more, but could never find a recipe for this, and so I made up my own. It’s beautiful, but very time consuming. I’ve seen it linked to all over the ‘net and people seem to really like it!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE TOMATO SAUCE:
  • 14.8 milliliters Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, Crushed
  • 227 grams (1 Cup) Canned Tomatoes, Chopped
  • 14.8 milliliters Tomato Puree
  • 4.9 milliliters Sugar
  • 1.2 milliliters Salt
  • 1.2 milliliters Pepper
  • FOR THE VEGETABLES:
  • ½ whole Butternut Squash, Chopped Into 2cm Cubes
  • 1 whole Red Onion, Quartered
  • 1 whole Leek, Chopped In Half Lengthwise, Smaller If Desired
  • Olive Oil, For Coating
  • FOR THE CHEESE SAUCE:
  • 240 grams (1 Cup) Bluebell Falls Goat Cheese, Divided
    (60g – 1/4 Cup – Will Be Saved For Crumbling On The Vegetables)
  • 14.8 milliliters Flour
  • 300 milliliters Milk (about A Mugful)
  • 4.9 milliliters Butter
  • EXTRAS:
  • 3 whole Lasagne Sheets
  • Grated Cheese (I Used Derby For Its Mild Flavour)

Preparation

Vital Stats:

Serves four with a side salad or green vegetables. Please note: it is quite filling!

Suitable for vegetarians.

450 calories per serving. 25.4g fat – 15.2g saturated (this is high, but it’s a cheesy dish). These are rough estimates gained by putting the recipe into a calorie counting-magig. I have more stats if needed.

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 220 C.

2. Chop up the squash, onion and leek, ready for roasting.

3. Throw the veggies into a pan, coating with oil (jumble it up with your hands if you will) and roast for 45 minutes, checking every 10 to 15 minutes.

4. In the meantime, heat some oil in a frying pan and add the canned tomatoes, garlic, tomato puree, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and then allow to simmer for 10 minutes. If you double the sauce, increase the time to 20 minutes.

5. While this is going, chop up 3/4ths of the goat cheese as best you can (tricky stuff, unless you use the hard variety and can grate it) and put it in a saucepan.

6. Add the flour, milk, butter and any salt/pepper/paprika to taste. Heat on the hob and keep stirring until it’s thickened. Don’t allow the cheese sauce to boil.

7. With all this preparation and sauce-making, the roast veggies should be done. Put half in the bottom of the dish, crumble some of the remaining goat cheese on, and cover with the tomato sauce. Put the lasagna sheets on top.

8. Put the rest of the veggies in, crumble the remaining goat cheese and cover with most of the cheese sauce. Put lasagna sheets on.

9. Put the rest of the cheese sauce on top and add a bit of grated cheese.

10. Bake for about half an hour at 220 C.

11. Enjoy!
