3 – Preheat the oven to 200c / Gas mark 6 (only do this if you’re planning to eat straight away – skip this step if you’re making the lasagne to heat later).

6 – Add a second layer of mince, then the rest of the lasagne sheets and the remaining yogurt and cheese mixture.

7 – Sprinkle the parmesan over the top.

8 – Cook in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes (up to 45 minutes if cooking from cold) or until the top is golden. Serve hot with Slimming World chips or salad.
