For the topping:
- 600ml semi-skimmed milk

- 30g low-fat vegetarian hard cheese, grated
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- To make your lasagne preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF, gas mark 4).
- Heat a large non-stick pan, and dry-fry the onions and garlic until soft. Add the Quorn mince, and cook until brown.
- Add the remaining ingredients and simmer gently for 20 mins to allow the flavours to combine while you make the topping.
- Heat the milk and mustard powder in a saucepan. Dilute the cornflour with a little cold milk and whisk into the milk and mustard. Season with salt and black pepper.
- Spoon a thin layer of the sauce into an ovenproof dish. Cover with a layer of lasagne sheets (don't overlap them, as they will expand during cooking). Continue layering the Quorn sauce and lasagne sheets.
- Cover the top of the lasagne with the remaining sauce and sprinkle with the grated cheese.
- Bake the lasagne in the oven for 35-40 mins until brown.
