Perfect Lasagna

Lasagna is one of my favourite things to make and eat too! I enjoy playing around with the recipe by adding more vegetables and trying to pack as much nutrition as I can into the dish. I’ve even made a raw lasagna which is extraordinarily delicious which I’ll share in a later post if you can wait. But lasagna is also delicious as the plain classic version too.  This time I made the classic version and it did not disappoint. I made two and froze them for a happy awaiting customer to use at a later date.

The below recipe is from the Thermomix Recipe Community and can easily be made without a Thermomix.  And it really is Perfect Lasagna every time, enjoy!
