• 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 750 g pumpkin, peeled and cut in 1-2cm dice
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp freshly chopped thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 400 g can Wattie's Chunky Tomato and Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce
  • 350 g bag Wattie's frozen Free-flow Chopped Spinach
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella or Edam cheese
  • ½ x 400 g pack fresh lasagne sheets
  • ½ cup cold water

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat a dash of oil in a large non-stick frying pan, cook pumpkin and onion until golden and tender. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

2. Combine cottage cheese with egg and thyme. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine Wattie’s Chunky Tomato and Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce with water, mix well.

3. To assemble, cut 3 sheets lasagne to fit a lasagne-style dish (2-litre capacity). Spoon a quarter of the pasta sauce into the base and place one sheet lasagne on top. Cover with half of the cooked pumpkin mix and half of the Wattie’s frozen Free-flow Chopped Spinach. Spoon over a quarter more pasta sauce and spread with half of the cottage cheese mixture, sprinkle with 1/4 cup mozzarella. Repeat the layers, finishing with a lasagne sheet. Spoon over remaining pasta sauce and sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated mozzarella.

4. Cook for 35-40 minutes or until golden and the pasta is tender.

Note: If using dried pasta sheets add an extra 1/2 cup water and cook for an extra 10 minutes.

Nicki's Review | Rating

Just awesome. i added crushed garlic and chillis when cooing the pumpkin. Needed to cook for longer than specified though as the pumpkin was still very firm. Delicious!

Darnielle Rogers's Review | Rating

The first time I made this, I was a bit disappointed with how it looked, but it tasted ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I prefer mashed pumpkin (especially because my lasagne dish is shallow), and I tend to make a double mixture for many meals. It holds up well! :)

Says to combine pasta sauce with water, what water? None mentioned in list of ingredients...

Reply from The Food in a Minute team

Hi Ruth, thanks for picking that up. You will need to combine the pasta sauce with 1/2 cup of cold water. I've updated the recipe to reflect this. Thanks!

Sofie's Review | Rating

So tasty and healthy! I made it with chive flavored cottage cheese rather than plain and basil flavored pasta sauce instead of roasted garlic.. No regrets! Simple components for a great dish. Hit all the right spots in the tum. Definitely will make again!
