Ingredient swaps

  • If you don’t have baby spinach, you could use 2-3 cubes of frozen spinach (thawed and drained).

Budget tips

  • Frozen carrots and zucchini can be used in place of fresh. Just chop finely.
  • You can save money by using home brand canned tomatoes, tomato paste and lasagne sheets.

Reduce waste

  • This lasagne can be frozen for later.  If freezing, you can freeze it before baking.  When you’re ready to use, remove it from the freezer, defrost in the fridge overnight and bake as usual.
  • Leftover cooked lasagne can be frozen and reheated until piping hot we needed. 

Nutrition tips

  • Tomatoes provide Vitamin C. Vitamin C supports your immune system.
  • Chicken and ricotta cheese provide protein.  Protein is important for our cells to grow and repair.
  • Meals that use lots of different coloured vegies are rich in a wide range of nutrients.
