Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Boil a full kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Peel and finely slice the red onion[s]


Trim the green stalks off the aubergine[s] and cut into quarters lengthways, then slice finely

Separate the lasagne sheets and add them spread out on a baking tray

Submerge them under boiled water, add a drizzle of olive oil

Set aside to soak for 6-7 min or until they've softened

Tip: Cooking for 4? Use 2 trays!


Re-boil half a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a generous drizzle of olive oil over a medium high heat

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and sliced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until softened


Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 400ml [650ml] boiling water

Stir in the tomato paste, chopped tomatoes and Henderson's Relish – this is your tomato stock


Once the onion has softened, add the dried oregano, sliced aubergine, baby leaf spinach to the pan with a splash of water

Give everything a good mix up and cook, covered, for 2-3 min or until the spinach begins to wilt


Once the lasagne sheets have softened, carefully remove them from the tray and tear them roughly into the pan

Add the tomato stock and stir everything together, evenly spreading out the torn lasagne

Bring to the the boil over a high heat and cook, covered, for 12-15 min or until the pasta is cooked and the sauce has thickened

Tip: Stir occasionally to stop the pasta from sticking together!


Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high

Once the pasta is cooked, tear the mozzarella and basil into the pan and season with a generous grind of pepper

Mix everything together, pulling some of the torn lasagne to the surface

Top with the grated Italian hard cheese and put the pan under the grill for 3-4 min or until bubbling and golden

Tip: Keep the pan handle outside of the grill if it's plastic!
