  1. Hello. I prepared it with whatever pasta I had, didn’t have lasagna sheets. Anyways, it turned out to be great!!! My 8 year old son who is quite picky had 2 portions, so it speaks for itself. Thanks 🙂 ??

  2. Cooked this today, the family loved it. I want to try this in the 1.5 litre slow cooker, so I can make small batches for lunches. It is very tasty indeed, and will be a regular event at our place. Note, instead of using just cheddar, I added some parmesan.

  3. A quick throw together for stunning flavour. I added a bit of sambal oelek (chilli) for spice, and I’ll be doing that again. Love this so much that I made extra for my work lunches (freeze and re-heat works well). This will be a regular item in my menu, even though I’m not vegetarian.

  4. 4 stars
    Mine turned out a bit dry maybe because I added extra ingredients like mushrooms onion garlic and herbs, I will make it again but will also add a white sauce. Nice to add another meatless dish to the menu.

  5. 5 stars
    A regular in our house and always a winner.
    I usually don’t have pesto so I might add tomato paste, or sweet chilli sauce instead.
