Roasted Vegetable Lasagne

May 26, 2015

Shut up and Cook

Preparation can be really boring, the endless chopping and never ending strips of vegetable peel, but if you keep complaining and procrastinating the meal will never be cooked.  Better to just put on some music and try to enjoy the preparation of the meal.  These days all you have to do is pop some clingfilm and shove the food in the microwave, but that doesn’t really give a strong sense of satisfaction.  Don’t be lazy, shut up and cook.  This is a vegetarian lasagne,  it is very filling and uses high quality fresh ingredients.

This recipe was taken from Helen Aitken’s The Really Useful Ultimate Student Cookbook (Murdoch Books, 2000).
