Ingredients

For the mince filling:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 500 g mince We used Quorn mince
  • 1 each of red & green peppers
  • 2 medium onions
  • 200 g mushrooms
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 400 g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 30 g Tomato puree
  • 2 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Seasoning salt & pepper
  • Freefrom white sauce we used Tesco You can also make this with milk, gluten free flour and melted butter. To make ours DF and GF we use Doves GF plain flour, Vitalite and almond milk.
  • Freefrom Lasagne sheets we used Tesco
  • 50 g Grated cheese

Instructions

  1. Chop up the onions, peppers and mushrooms.
  2. Fry the vegetables and garlic in olive oil for a couple of minutes. Add the tomato puree, and chopped tomatoes next.
  3. You can add the mince right away if you want to but we were using Quorn mince so I waited a few minutes.
  4. Add the mince and fry for a couple more minutes. Add the basil, oregano, salt & pepper and stir well.
  5. Layer up the lasagne. Mince, lasagne sheets and then white sauce.
  6. Keep layering.
  7. Once you’re near the top of the slow cooker pot, or at your desired level of layers (we like 3), then add the cheese to the top.
  8. I place a clean tea towel under the lid. This helps to absorb the condensation and stops it making the top of the lasagne soggy. I’m at home when my slow cooker is on and I wouldn’t recommend leaving it unattended with a tea towel under the lid.
  9. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours.

  10. Serve! If you want a crispy top then pop it under the grill for a few minutes.
