After a week of warm weather (for Scotland at least!) we’re thankfully having a bit of a cool break and some rain. The perfect weather for comfort cooking! There’s nothing better, to me than spending a cosy rainy day in my kitchen. Especially when it gives me the time, and luxury, to make lasagne. Or today’s recipe – my healthy lasagne.

One of my favourite dishes to cook is lasagne – layers upon layers of indulgence, taking hours to prepare. However, it is probably not best suited to summer when I prefer to eat lighter meals. That’s why in Summer I make my healthy lasagne, with less than 500 calories per serving. There’s no bechamel sauce, just layers of lean beef and roasted Mediterranean vegetable – yum!

In my healthy lasagne, I replace the bechamel sauce with roasted Mediterranean vegetables. Starting with a layer of pasta at the bottom of my favourite lasagne dish, I then top this with vegetables, followed by the lean beef, then more pasta, and repeat! On top of this is buffalo mozzarella – and a little of this goes a long way!

And in Summer I find I don’t want greasy cheeses, or rich sauces to be honest. I just want soups and salads, or light pasta dishes with oodles of vegetables. I want my food as bright and light as the weather! That’s why I think this lasagne is perfect for summer. It’s light, and it doesn’t weigh you down, and there’s little guilt involved.

I love serving this with an easy side salad, made with rocket, shaved parmesan, red onion, tossed through a balsamic dressing. Absolutely delicious!
