“This is based on my Our Special Vegetarian Lasagne but this one includes anchovies so unless you eat fish it's not vegetarian. Use a disposable foil tray if you don't have a large enough baking dish. This is my first recipe trying anchovies and I've got to say that I really enjoyed what they bring to the dish. Come on be brave, "they're just hairy, not scary"! Please note that prep time is time to make the lentil sauce.”

  6. If sauce is too thick thin with a little water. Season to taste with salt and pepper as desired.
  7. Start with a spoon of sauce, then layer lasagne noodles and sauce together, finishing with a layer of sauce.
