Chicken lasagne

500g chicken mince
3 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
Finely grated rind of 1 lemon
1 tsp dried oregano
670g jar tomato passata (purée)
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
300g fresh lasagne sheets
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

Return mince to the pan with lemon rind, oregano, passata and vinegar, then season and cook for 10 minutes.

2. Layer sheets of lasagne in an oven-proof dish with chicken sauce, mozzarella and pesto, finishing off with a thin layer of cream, some mozzarella and pesto.

3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with a salad of your choice.
