A Little Effort
23 g of fat

- 1 tbsp of olive oil (Unlike beef mince, Quorn Mince does not need to be cooked in oil, you can just add it into the sauce. So you only need 1tbsp of olive oil for this recipe)
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of crushed garlic
- 100g mushrooms, sliced
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 3 tbsp vegetarian red pesto
- 1 tsp oregano
- 3 tbsp red wine
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 2 tbsp fresh basil, shredded

- 300ml milk
- 100g mature cheddar cheese, grated plus extra for topping

- Preheat the oven to 200C, 400F, Gas Mark 6.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes until softened.
- Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes.
- Stir in the Quorn mince and then the tomatoes, vegetarian red pesto, oregano, wine and vegetable stock cube. Increase the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
- Stir in the basil, season to taste then remove from the heat.
- Make the white sauce by melting the butter, stir in the flour and cook gently for a minute stirring constantly. Slowly add the milk and reheat until beginning to thicken. At this stage add the cheese, season to taste and simmer gently for 2 minutes.

The nation has spoken
Really delicious lasagne - I added half a jar of passata/pasta sauce to the mince mixture because it wasn’t quite saucy enough to cover the lasagne sheets. I managed to please the meat eaters in my household with this meal!
The quorn mince is a pretty good substitute for beef and is lower in fat. I used fresh lasagne instead of courgettes. I took it to a group supper and several guests told me it was delicious. I thought so too. Lasagne is not a quick dish to prepare though. I made it a day ahead and reheated it although the recipe says to serve immediately.
