This lasagne is DELICIOUS! Really easy to make and just so tasty. I used fresh red peppers and roasted them myself beforehand and I used white sauce instead of Bechamel sauce then, to give it more flavour, added garlic, oregano, nutmeg and black pepper. I've been looking for a red pepper lasagne recipe for ages - thank you for this!
