I wish to make a lasagne 'type' dish, any ideas would be welcome please.

I have leeks,shallots,cheeses,tomatoes,store cupboard essentials(plenty)+ some beautiful mini portabello mushrooms.

If I layer up the ingredients like a lasagne, minus the meat, do you think it would work?

Hate the thought of wasting food, especially such lovely ingredients, so any ides would be very welcome please!

Many thanks, Odelle S.

wave  Hi Odelle and welcome.

 I have seen Ina Garten- Barefoot Contessa - making a mushroom lasagne before and it looked delicious.  She fried the mushrooms off gently first and used all the juices too.  Then layered with lasagne sheets and cheese sauce.  I am sure it would work well using different veggies.  In fact I might try this myself as I am salivating thinking of it.  i_am_hungry

Hi there danast+Toffeeapple,

Many thanks for the warm welcome to the forum, it is much appreciated, thankyou!

I shall confidently try the vegetable/ lasagne type dish now that you have given me the confidence to try it out.  I shall follow your 'lead' and look forward to sampling the results.

Kindest regards and I shall look forward to joining in the forum now that I have taken this first step, I'm sure that I will enjoy the friendliness, help, tips and advice.

Bye for now,

These kinds of dishes are lovely for this time of year: great cold-weather grub, but also an antidote to the likely overdose of meats in the coming festivities - much as I enjoy them too.

I'm pretty new here myself, OdelleS - they seem to be a friendly crowd, and they don't bite - so farwhistle

But I do wield my Spork spork every once in a while, that can be painful - ask Mos and Seth.  big_laugh

I'll try that again!

Welcome on board, Odelle !

Sorry to come in on this a bit late Odelle, but using flavoured milk is wonderful when making a vegetables lasagne. Heat up the milk first with bay leaves, cloves, onion and carrot. Then leave to infuse for at least one hour when you would remove the bay leaves and cloves. Then use this milk to make the white/cheese sauce - whatever you're making. I add soured cream to the sauce, too.

I have a vegetarian friend who often asked me to make this for her when entertaining - she loved it.

The veg used in my recipe is onion, carrot, red pepper, courgettes, and sweetcorn.

I have my nephew and family visiting at Christmas, and they are all vegetarian - I will be making this lasagne for them.

Hi toffeapple,

good to be back! Thank-you, yes, I just about survived the festivities with-out mishap, makes a change........not that I catch just about every thing that's going around, just about 'clear' now from the pneumonia & pleurisy see what I can manage next!......

The lasagne (vegetarian) dish turned out at treat thanks to all your help and advice, am I pleased that I found this site......it's taken me a long time before I ventured on to the Forum, oh, what I've been missing out on, fun, laughter, enjoyment and every-one is so helpful, friendly and welcoming.  All I need to do now is to learn to navigate the different elements of the site, could take some time, judging by my first few attempts, I'm pleased that I managed to reply to you so it's a start.

I'm back and forth to the kitchen at the moment as I've got soda bread still cooking, oh how I wished that I'd waited until morning, why do I get these silly ideas from!.....Never mind, come morning when I've got fresh bread all ready for breakfast I will be pleased that I did.

How did your Christmas celebrations go? I hope that you had a good time, ooh what did you cook, I'm always interested in what others had, I'm terrible. If friends say they've been out for a meal, that's it, I'm asking what they had for starters, main course the works, it's awful of me it's just that I'm interested in food so think to myself, ooh I think I'll try that.

Well it's back to the kitchen to check on the bread and of course I've still got the washing up to do, yeuch.....

So, I will say Cherio for now and look forward to many more attempts at the forum now that I've got the 'bug' and managed to 'find' my way around a little, I hope!

Night Odelle.dohdohdohwave
