Open Lasagne

When I discovered Palmini lasagna sheets, I knew the exact dish that I wanted to make with them.

This lasagne is a spin on my very popular Beef n' Bacon Lasagne from my cooking service.

For this dish you will need a fry pan or casserole dish that can go from the stove top to the oven.

Of course, if you don't have Palmini lasagna sheets. You can use anything you like as a pasta substitute - sliced zucchini or eggplant for example.

If you are using Palmini lasagna sheets, make sure you rinse them well. They can have quite a distinctive flavour if you don't wash them so you want to get rid of that. They don't need boiling beforehand, the time in the oven will cook them enough.

I topped this lasagne with mix of mozzarella and tasty cheese but of course, you can top it with any cheese you like.

I love hiding vegetables in lasagne. It's a fabulous way to get them into the kids! Finally diced capsicum or grated zucchini would be perfect additions.
