Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne

Make our microwave vegetarian lasagne in no time at all. Layered with delicious ingredients, lasagne is a family favourite. This old-school Italian dish is generally heavily on the meat sauce and quite time-consuming to put together. We’ve given lasagne a meatless makeover and created a recipe that you can put together and then have on the table in no time at all, using a standard microwave. Check out our microwave range.
