Cheesy Carrot Lasagne

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!
