Giving you more ideas to commit to Meatless Monday! The beans give this lasagna a nice ‘meaty texture’, while adding quality protein and fibre. A very satisfying meal, great with a side of greens, or garlic bread if desired. 15 min preparation time +30 min in the oven needed so may wish to cook this in advance, then freeze or reheat.
