Courgette and Goats’ Cheese Lasagne with Caramelised Onion Marmalade


Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F

Melt the butter in a medium sized saucepan over a moderate heat, stir in the flour and cook out for 1 min. Gradually add in the milk whisking continuously until fully incorporated, cook for around 5 mins until smooth and thickened. Add in the nutmeg, parmesan and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Add the olive oil to a medium sized frying pan over a moderate heat, add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds before adding in the chard and a generous pinch of salt. Sauté the chard for 2-3 mins until wilted down.

Cook the lasagne sheets in plenty of salted hot water as per packet instructions, drain and put to one side.

Add a third of the béchamel sauce to the base of a medium sized baking dish, top with a third of the sliced courgette, goats’ cheese and ½ of the chard. Add a third of the Caramelised Onion Marmalade, dotting it around with a teaspoon, top with a layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat the layering as before using up the remaining chard.
