sounds really yummy! but how come you can't buy minced pork in England? (i remember buying some from butchers in Chinatown, but i can't remember whether i bought any from sainsbury's and the like.)


Hi Johanna,
I finally figured out that the small photos were thumbnails and you have to click on them to see the bigger photo. This lasagna looks delicious!


i am told it is a cultural thing. as we have many communities who do not eat pork for religious reasons they cannot use their grinder for beef AND pork, as to not "contaminate" it. And they won't keep two separate ones. At least that's what I'm told at my butcher's as well as at Waitrose and Sainsbury's. I haven't tried Chinatown, though, thanks for the suggestion!


that would explain it, although i would think that those who can only consume kosher or halal meat would naturally get their meat from kosher/halal butchers? (they're even more cautious about things here in Malaysia!)

perhaps it's time to get a meat grinder? :)

ahh, i really miss the variety of food in London! haven't been there in nearly 4 years since finishing my degree :(

I am a vegetarian and this sounds delicious. Who cares if you can't get minced pork, this recipe sounds like meat would ruin it!!


This is exactly the kind of recipe I've been looking for :) Delicious!

Great recipe. Was a big hit with everybody round the table. :-)


Great recipe, have have used it twice at 2 dinner partys and what can I say everyone was very very impressed and asking for the recipe. Would highly reccomend it.


This recipe is amazing. It has been my staple 'Special' dinner for a year or 2 now


Cooked this for the girls on my hen night, as I wanted a veggie dish that I could cook ahead, would transport well and counld be just chucked in the oven when we wanted it.

I was the best Lasange I have ever eaten and everyone has asked me for the resipe. I did make a coupple of adjustments swapping the potato for sweet potato and the celery for carrot (grated).

Thanks you. x


This recipe sounds fantastic, just what I'm looking for. Does anybody know if it freezes well? Thanks.


Hi Nora,

I often freeze this lasagne as a full batch is too much for one meal... iut works very well. I would suggest that you defrost it over night (in its container on the kitchen counter), then re-heat in a casserole in the oven, sprinkle it with some water first. In the microwave it dries out a bit too much!

I hope this helps.


Thats perfect! Thank you, I'll definitely try it.
