This quick and easy veggie lasagne has been created by celeb chef James Martin to celebrate National Vegetarian Week.


  • 6-8sheets lasagne
  • 2 (283g) cans creamed mushrooms
  • 2 (390g) tin ratatouille
  • 50g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 50g Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 600ml (1 pint) milk
  • 25g (1oz) plain flour
  • 25g (1oz) butter

Lasagne is the perfect stress-free dinner. Make it in advance and keep in the fridge until you want to bake it.


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6).
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 mins.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and gradually stir in the milk to get a smooth cheese sauce. Return to the heat, continue stirring. Bring to the boil then simmer for 8-10 mins.
  4. Add half the grated cheese and heat gently for 1 min, whisking until the cheeses have melted, season with nutmeg, salt and black pepper.
  5. Put the creamed mushrooms into a bowl and combine with half the cheese.
  6. Put half the cheese and mushrooms sauce in the bottom of an oven proof dish and pour over 1 can of ratatouille. Lay 3-4 pasta sheets over the top then repeat.
  7. Pour the remainder of the cheese sauce over the top of the lasagne, sprinkle with the remaining Gruyere and Parmesan.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30-40 mins. Allow to stand for 10 mins before serving.

Parmesan cheese is not vegetarian.


I tried this recipie for the first time tonight and thought it was delicious. A real twist on your average veggie lasagne.

I am a little dissapointed that James Martin couldn`t have come up with a better offering. It seems as if he feels its not worth putting any effort into a recipe unless it has meat in it.
