Vegetable lasagne

Why ease into winter half-heartedly by making semi-comforting Autumnal recipes when you can jump right into it, indulgently, with a really hearty vegetable lasagne?

Method

 
Prepare your selection of vegetables to your liking, individually seasoning but keeping the end-result in mind.
Once cooked, combine with pasta and béchamel sauce in a rectangular oven-proof dish.
Start with a layer of pasta – fresh homemade pasta sheets are ideal – and then top it with the tomato and lentil mix.
Add another layer of pasta and top with the roasted fennel bulb and handfuls of crumbed ricotta.
Top this with another layer of pasta, and then add the chopped baked carrots and half of the béchamel sauce.
Finish with a final layer of pasta and the rest of the béchamel sauce.
Lastly add a generous sprinkling of grated mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
Bake in a preheated oven (180°C) for approximately 30 minutes.
Serve piping hot, with fresh basil, parmesan shavings and a glass of silky red wine.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
