Roasted chestnut & mushroom lasagne

Tonight I put some festive nuts into my dinner. To make this delight you….

  • Roast off some chestnuts in the oven (220°C for 20 minutes)
  • Peel the chestnuts and put them to one side (this takes ages by the way so put some tunes on)
  • Sauté some garlic with some groundnut oil and mix in a handful of chopped parsley
  • Add the peeled chestnuts
  • Boil some lasagne sheets in a large pan until almost cooked-this can be tricky as they tend to stick together
  • Pour some double cream into the mushrooms and chestnuts. Cook through for a few minutes and season to taste
  • Layer the pasta sheets and mixture in a dish. Grate some mature cheese on top (I used grana padana)
  • Cook in the oven at 180°C for 20 minutes
  • Serve with chopped up basil & parsley and add some sweet chopped tomatoes 

It’s nice sometimes to have a change from your usual meaty lasagne .
