Lasagna has never really been a part of culinary repertoire because I’ve always thought that it takes too long to make. However, recently I tested a vegetarian lasagna with green lentils and grated beetroot instead of beef mince. The results were much better than expected, and I suspect I’ll be making this recipe again some time soon. The expression is true: good things take time…

  3. Wow, I never would have thought about putting lentils and beetroot in lasagna! I make veggie lasagna all the time with spinach and ricotta, but I’ll definitely have to try this version out.
