Classic lasagne

Who’s up for a classic lasagne? Whether you like yours on the dry side, so it is easy to cut and serve in squares, or slightly sloppier with plenty of sauce, is a matter of personal taste. Tweak to your liking; it tastes just as good for example without any cheese on top, or with the cheese layered up within it.

Quick courgette lasagne

This must be the best easy vegetarian lasagne! Mix the courgettes, garlic and chilli with ricotta, add a shop-bought tomato sauce and fresh lasagne and dinner can be on the table in under 30 minutes.


White lasagne

White lasagne, like white pizza, doesn’t contain any tomato sauce but is still rich and savoury. This version with porcini and pancetta is a bit posher than the usual. Look for high-welfare or rose veal mince.

Vincisgrassi (pasta baked with parma ham)

Vincisgrassi, a type of baked pasta, comes from the region of Le Marche in Italy. It’s attributed to both General Windischgrätz (who fought Napoleon at Ancona), and to princisgrassi (meaning fat for the prince). In either case it’s very rich – some versions being even richer with the addition of sweetbreads and a pasta dough made with vin santo or marsala.


Healthier lasagne

Our low calorie lasagne is a delicious dinner recipe for six people. Serve with a green salad for a healthy version of this classic Italian dish.


Leek and crab lasagne

Leek and crab lasagne is lighter and more refreshing than beef lasagne and it has a great flavour. Either buy cooked crabs and pick out the meat yourself, discarding the grey-coloured gills and stomach, or buy picked meat.


Butternut squash lasagne

This vegetarian take on a family favourite is perfect if you’re trying to cut back on meat, and is ready in just 30 minutes, making it quick enough to cook midweek.
