I've made this twice now and am absolutely in love with this lasagne. I made a few errors the first time I made it but it still came out great, this time, I followed the recipe to the letter and what a fantastic meal this is. This is now a favourite of the household, I'll be sure to make enough to freeze next time too. Creamy, cheesy, substantial and filling, lovely. Thanks Sidu!
