An incredibly rich and satisfying lasagne recipe which has only 416 calories a slice?   Yes please.    Trust me, you will not miss the pasta.

[recipe-foody]Serves 4

  • Bolognese sauce (get the recipe here)
  • 1 large courgette (or 2 small)
  • 250g tub of ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 25g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil (for cooking)
  • ½ of a 125g mozzarella ball, sliced

Method

  1. prepare the Bolognese sauce – this can be done ahead of time
  2. beat the ricotta cheese together with the egg, half of the grated parmesan and a good grinding of pepper and set aside
  3. slice the courgette as thinly as possible and sprinkle salt over both sides (NB. if you are short of time you can skip this step and the following three but the lasagne will be a little more watery)
  4. spread the courgette slices somewhere where they can drain, e.g. in a sieve or a roasting tray with a rack – the salt will draw out some of the moisture
  5. cover with a clean tea towel and leave for 30 minutes
  6. using the clean tea towel, wipe as much salt and moisture off the courgette slices as possible
  7. preheat the oven to 180°C
  8. heat up the oil in a large frying pan and fry both sides of the courgette slices until they are beginning to brown
  9. spread the first layer of Bolognese sauce over the bottom of a  medium-sized casserole dish
  10. add a layer of courgette slices and cover with a layer of the ricotta mixture
  11. repeat the three layers again and, if you have any leftover Bolognese, spread over the top
  12. cover with the mozzarella and the remaining parmesan cheese
  13. put the dish into the oven and serve when the cheese on the top has browned – this should take around 25 – 30 minutes
