The Perfect Flavoured Vegie Lasagne

Many years ago we dined on this at a friend’s place and we have been cooking it ever since. ¬†Sometimes I cook it for friends, weekly lunches, shabbat meal, or when we just feel like something warm and hearty! Usually with a glass of red.

You can add your choice of meat if you wish, but I like to cook it without (although lamb mince is amazing too). My husband thinks all dinners should have some kind of meat/fish, but he seems to like this….probably the sour cream ūüôā

So what’s in it?¬†Gluten-free lasagne sheets (not too great on the top as it puffs up), sweet potato, normal potato, zucchini, squash, sour cream, tomato pasta sauce, eggplant, mushrooms, cheese, oregano and thyme (this time from my garden!). ¬†I just layer it up in a square dish and pop it on the oven….not too high cause you don’t want the sour cream to curdle and it is ideal to have the vegies cook through too!

Gluten-free lasagne sheets - just from Coles.

Herbs from MY garden! So nice to not buy them. Oregano and Basil.

Some of the layering.

My New Herb Garden

My selection of herbs

I have always wanted my very own herb garden.  I waste so many herbs when I buy a bunch from the supermarket for a recipe and then use a few sprigs and toss the rest.

Our cat Panini checking out the new herbage!

Warning Panini about my herbs - "Do Not Touch!"

Watering the soil. It was such a hot day that I set myself up in the shade and did my watering from there. I watered before I planted so that the soil compacted first.

Planting my baby herbs - can't wait to eat!

The herbs that I planted: baby spinach, cos lettuce, mix lettuce, chives, spring onion, basil, thyme, oregano, parsley.  I want to go and get some coriander and rosemary, but the shop had run out (apparently this weekend was the weekend for planting a herb garden).  In a separate tub I planted mint (which needs to be all on its own as it likes to spread), chillies and strawberries.
