How to prepare: 

  1. Chop the onions and peppers. Grate the courgettes and carrots
  2. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan. Add mince and onions.
  3. When mince is browned add the carrots, courgettes, peppers and cans of tomatoes. Stir.
  4. Add vegetable stock cube, black pepper, garlic, tomato puree, paprika, and oregano. Cover and let it simmer for 35-45 min, stirring occasionally.
  5. Prepare white sauce. In a pan melt the butter. Add the flour and milk. This sauce is meant to be very liquid and only minimum quantity of butter and flour is used to keep the calorie content down. You need this sauce only to moisturise the lasagne sheets.
  6. Use spray of oil to coat oven dish and spread out with fingers. Pour the white sauce in the bottom so that the lasagne sheets are covered. Add a layer of mince/vegetable mixture and over that another layer of white sauce and on top of that another lasagne sheet. Carry on with white sauce and mince/vegetable mixture for another layer or two so that the last layer is mince/vegetable mixture. Crumble the feta cheese over the top.
  7. Cover with tinfoil and place in oven at 200C for approx.30 minutes.
