TASTE’s great lasagne guide

It’s the comfort food we know and love – we’ve featured five (and linked to eight more) of our favourite indulgent lasagne recipes to satisfy all your comfort food cravings.

A traditional lasagne is all about the layers of hearty Bolognese sauce, perfectly cooked al dente pasta sheets, moreish béchamel sauce and the bubbly grilled cheesy top! Read on to find our favourite ways with this classic comfort food.


If you’re looking for something a little different try this version, which uses baby marrows instead of pasta and is on the table in just 20 minutes. It might also mean one less session at the gym and more time on the couch, too.
