Whether you are vegetarian or just fancy a meatless meal, this (Eggplant) Aubergine Lasagne is Delicious. My kids don’t even realize this is meat free.
I had an Aubergine (Eggplant) that needed to be used up (one of my favourite vegetables) and was originally going to make a gratin of some sort to accompany some chicken, but thinking about my love of Greek dishes and things like this Low Syn Moussaka or Moussaka Meatballs or Mediterranean Layered Bake, I decided on this (Eggplant) Aubergine Lasagne.
It really was amazing and because the filling is mostly vegetables, you are getting in a good ratio of speed vegetables. I had a mixed salad on the side too, just to increase my speed foods even further.
This (Eggplant) Aubergine Lasagne is also perfect for freezing. I cooked it all in one dish, then froze one serving. But you could make it up in 4 little containers and just cook the portions you want and freeze the ones you don’t for another day.
You won’t be disappointed in the amazing white sauce cheesy topping. I always make any Slimming World Lasagne with a white sauce this way. When you use your healthy extra a choice, it really isn’t that many syns. So you may as well have the real thing. There is just no compromising on taste in my opinion.
If you use gluten free lasagne sheets, then this (Eggplant) Aubergine Lasagne will also be gluten free. I like brown rice pasta, as it’s the closest I have found in taste and texture to regular pasta. This recipe is also suitable for vegetarians, however if you wanted to add some meat to this, extra lean ground beef would be great, or even some cooked chicken.
