Cheesy Carrot Lasagne



A cheesy, meatless lasagne that is healthy and delicious. The list of ingredients is relatively short which you likely have in your pantry. As it contains mainly carrots, it is skinnier than a usual lasagne. But the good news is that it does not taste skinny at all. It's packed with cheese but carrots and Greek yogurt keep it light. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Because sometimes you want food that doesn't take hours to prepare.

Cheesy Carrot Lasagne

2 tbsp oil
3  (300g) onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
4  (470g) carrots, shredded
1 tsp salt
1 can  (400g) chopped tomatoes with juice
180g / 2/3 cup greek yogurt
200g / 6oz your favorite cheese, shredded
250g / 9oz no-boil lasagne noodles

1) Preheat oven to 200C / 400F. Line a 20x20cm / 8x8inch baking dish with parchment paper or prepare a silicone baking dish.

2) In a medium saucepan, heat oil and add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned. Add shredded carrots and salt. Stir-fry until carrots soften a little bit. Remove from heat and set aside.

3) Cover the bottom of the baking dish with 1/2 of chopped tomatoes (with juice). Top with 1/4 of the noodles. Top noodles with 1/3 of the carrot mixture and sprinkle 1/3 of cheese. Top with 1/4 of noodles, remaining chopped tomatoes and another 1/3 of the carrot mixture. Top with 1/3 of cheese. Spread 1/2 of Greek yogurt and top with 1/4 of noodles. Top with remaining 1/3 of the carrot mixture and remaining noodles. Top with remaining Greek yogurt and cheese.*

*You don't have to follow all these steps. This is what I did but you can arrange your lasagne the way you like it.

4) Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 180C / 350F and continue baking, covered, for another 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for additional 10 minutes until the top is golden brown.

5) Let cool for a few minutes, slice and serve!
