  • Mrs M Kennedy
  • Fleming Fulton School, Belfast
  • Special Education


  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1 courgette, cut into chunks
  • 1 red pepper
  • 8 plum tomatoes, halved
  • 350ml passata
  • 200g ready cooked lasagne sheets
  • 6 tbsp Northern Ireland half–fat crème fraîche
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Coleslaw:
  • Red and white cabbage, shredded
  • Carrots, grated
  • Onions, finely chopped
  • Dressing


  • Heat the oven to 190ºC / Fan 170ºC / Gas mark 5.
  • Slice the courgettes and onion, pepper and garlic. Toss oil and vegetables together and roast in a large shallow tin for 15 minutes until lightly charred.
  • Spoon a layer of roasted veg over the bottom of a medium–size baking dish. Pour over some passata and cover with a layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat layers to use up all the roasted veg and passata finishing with a layer of lasagne.
  • Use a spoon to dollop over the crème fraîche then sprinkle with parmesan.
  • Return to the oven for 20 minutes until the lasagne is heated through and the top is golden and bubbling.
  • For the coleslaw, shred the cabbage, grate the carrots, chop the onion and mix together with dressing.
