Tomato Sauce

1 tin tomato puree 1 onion, sliced & sautéed ½ cup water 2 teaspoons sugar 2 teaspoons soy sauce Salt & pepper (Simmer all the ingredients on the stove in a small saucepan for 5 minutes)


1 x kg pre cut butternut, microwave for 16 minutes until soft and mash it up 1 x packet fresh baby spinach 250g button mushrooms, sautéed with garlic, salt & pepper


3 eggs 1 tub of Mascarpone cheese or Ricotta 1 cup fresh cream Salt & pepper (Whisk all the ingredients together) 1 x packet lasagne sheets of your choice – I like the spinach ones


Start with the sauce, then the tomato puree, lasagne, butternut, spinach leaves, mushrooms, lasagne, tomato puree and the sauce all over to finish. 1 cup mozzarella grated – over the dish and bake for 40 minutes. Serve with a lovely green salad.
