I love converting meat recipes into vegan recipes and finding out just how yummy they are without meat. Well when I am getting ready in the gym they always have the TV on and on a Saturday that means cooking shows. Very recently I saw Gennaro Contaldo making a classic lasagne and it looked so lovely I thought that I just had to make it.

When making lasagne you do need to take a bit of time and get all the elements made but it is worth the extra effort to allow all the flavours to infuse. When I served up this lasagne it went down very well and brought back memories of the traditional Maltese Macaroni that we used to have when I was a child (we had already made it vegetarian).

I did make a few changes to the original recipe, for example there we no herb or garlic in Gennaro Contaldo’s recipe and although that may be traditional it just did not feel right for me and so I added those bits into it. I also added a little bit of mustard into the white sauce just to lift everything a bit. There are a lot of steps to this, including making vegan parmesan but just work through it step by step and you will have a wonderful vegan lasagne
