  1.  Preheat the oven to 180°C and prepare an ovenproof dish (30 x 20 cm) by spraying with oil.
  2. Combine passata and cream in a bowl.
  3. Combine ricotta, chopped herbs, eggs and Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl.
  4. Add one-third of the passata mixture to the prepared dish. Top with lasagne sheets, the sliced pumpkin, zucchini and mushroom, then one-third of the ricotta mixture.
  5. Repeat layers until all ingredients have been used up, aiming to end with a layer of zucchini slices.
  6. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
  7. Remove foil then bake for a further 15–20 minutes.
  8. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving with a tossed salad of green leaves.


  • Any sort of pumpkin - Kent, Jarrendale, Jap, Queensland Blue - will be fine.
