Recipe by Latchy
This is a recipe I have had for ages and don't know where I originally got it from but have posted because of a request on the threads. It does work.

This was very easy to make and delicious. The only thing maybe I'll do next time is add a little pasta sauce on the base of the dish as the lasagne stuck a little. I also think I didn't use enough tomato sauce (400 grams of Barilla Olive (my favourite)). However nobody noticed as we finished the whole thing in one night. Thank you Latchy (RIP)
