How to make Vegetable Lasagne

Thanks to me being in UK, I could learn this Italian Dish. An extremely heavy, yummy, and cheesy main dish! Try it out!

Serves: 3

Lasagne strips - 4 (depending on the size of your baking dish)
Mozarella cheese - 300 gms (shredded)
(TIP: you can use a mix of cheddar, parmesan and mozarella instead of using Mozarella alone)

Carrots - 1 cup
Cauliflower - 1 cup
Peas - 1 cup
Cabbage - 1/2 cup
Oregano seasoning - 1-2 teaspoons
Salt - just a pinch

White Sauce:
Butter - 1 tablespoon
Maida - 1 tablespoon
Milk - 1 cup
Pepper powder - a pinch


To make the white sauce:
1. In a dry pan, add butter, maida and pepper powder and fry the maida till it turns light brown.
2. Add Milk and keep stirring in low flame till it becomes a thick paste.
3. Add about 1/4 cup cheese and stir till it melts.

For the veggies:
1. Cut the veggies into small cubes.
2. Boil them (with salt) in the microwave for about 10 mins till they are half-cooked.
3. Drain the water and add oregano seasoning. Mix well.

* Once the veggies and the white sauce are ready, grease a baking dish with butter.
* Pre-heat the Oven.
* Add a layer of vegetables, cover the layer with a layer of thick white sauce.
* Place lasagne strips on the white sauce layer.
* Repeat the vegetable and white sauce layers.
* After the final layer of white sauce, add grated cheese. Make sure it covers the whole top surface.
* Bake in the oven at about 200 degrees for 45 mins.
(Tip: to find out if the lasagne has baked, insert a knife or a fork and make sure the lasagne strip is soft. Also, note if the cheese has turned color)

Lasagne is ready to eat! Enjoy
