Vegetable Potato Lasagne

So what do you do when you’ve been building up all day to a vegetable lasagne and then you realise you are out of wheat free lasagne sheets? 

1. Make something else?

2. Make your own lasagne?

3. Use potato instead?

Today I was feeling a bit more inventive, plus I had a tonne of potatoes to use up… so option 3 it was.

This worked really well, it took longer to cook as I wanted the potatoes to definitely be on the softer side, but you could parboil them to help speed up the cooking time. My cottage cheese white sauce is a big hit.Healthier, quicker to make and lighter on the stomach and palate too, it takes lasagne from a “weekend meal” to an “everyday meal”.  My family are happy.

Someone suggested this was more of a moussaka, I’m not sure. I’m going with lasagne as that is what I based it on. Call it what you like. It’s delicious.
