VEGGIE GUILT FREE LASAGNE - COOKING WITH FERNE 🥘
If you're looking for a lasagne with a twist and fancy and meat free meal. This recipe is for you, its so moreish and the reason why its guilt free is because instead of using béchamel sauce I used creme fraiche. So it's much lighter and of course it's all about balance, you can have this without cheese or lighter cheese. With this recipe, I also stay away from adding extra oil and salt to make it extra healthy.

YOU WILL NEED:
1 red onion
2 garlic cloves
2 carrots - grated
Mixed mushrooms
1/2 teaspoons veg stock powder
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 courgette
Sheets of lasagne
Creme fraiche and grated cheddar and parmesan
