Thermomix Vegetable Lasagne Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

Is there anything more delicious than a comforting lasagne recipe? This one is made in the Thermomix and jam-packed full of flavour. Get the recipe here...

I want to be completely honest here, I find lasagne exhausting to make, but it’s a meal my family really likes… so I do it. So if I was to order a meal to be dropped off to my doorstep, this would probably be it. Ah, Thermomix Vegetable Lasagne, you’ve won my heart. It’s got so much flavour jam-packed into it, and I’m crazy about vegetables… so seriously, just come to mama. The work will be worth it.
