The beauty of this dish is there's no sauce to make. The layers of lasagna are moistened with a blend of soft cheese and cream, flecked through with dill and sharpened with a little lemon juice. It tastes quite rich so a little goes a long way, which is good as it's definitly not fat free!!! Great dinner party entree!!!

I made this recipe for a ladies lunch recently and it ticked all the boxes! Everyone wanted the recipe. It was easy to follow, not time consuming and very delicious!! I only did two layers as I had a shallow dish and that was fine. However, next time, I will add a little more of the cheese mixture because I had to go a bit easy so it would last the distance so I was glad I only did the two layers. Serve with a salad and most of your lunch is covered.
This was a great recipe. I thought it could use a bit more salmon. So I made it again with double the amount of salmon and we like it better. Thanks
This is a super recipe. So simple to make and utterly delicious. Looks and taste like something you would get in an expensive eatery!
