We love lasagne, sadly, as with an awful lot of our favourite things, it’s not very Slimming World friendly. So we decided to make this Syn Free Lasagne.
A classic Lasagne is made by interleaving layers of pasta with layers of bolognese sauce, usually consisting of minced beef and tomatoes.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
However, we’re following the Slimming World plan, so as always we’ve packed in the speed foods.
Some of you love this Syn Free Lasagne recipe!
The Bolognese Sauce
The secret to a good Italian sauce is to use a good quality tomato. We used Cirio Cherry Tomatoes, but any good quality Italian tomatoes is fine.
They’re not as watery or acidic as some other brands, and they are great when you want that authentic Italian tomato flavour.
The White Sauce
Recently a lot of people have asked us how to make a white sauce for lasagne. We’ve tried quite a few versions of this sauce, from blitzed cottage cheese to quark, but this is probably the best one so far. So it’s well worth giving it a go.
This Syn Free Lasagne uses half of your HEA allowance if you get 6 portions out of this recipe. However, if you don’t want to use up your HEA you can always syn the cheese.
