Sea salt

Freshly ground pepper

360g ricotta cheese

1 large egg

8 lasagne sheets

100g Alex James’ sheep’s cheese, crumbled

How to make it

Loaded with flavour, this Chorizo and Sheep’s Cheese lasagne is a great alternative to traditional lasagne, and because it’s made from ewe’s milk it’s got less lactose than cow’s milk.

  • Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C Fan)
  • In a large frying pan, cook the chorizo over medium high heat for 3 minutes, until it starts to brown
  • Add the marinara sauce and season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • In another saucepan melt the butter. Add the flour to make a roux
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the lactose-free ricotta, egg, sea salt, freshly ground pepper and 80ml water
  • In an 8-inch-square baking dish, spread 1/3  of marinara sauce and top with 4 lasagne sheets, breaking them as necessary so that they fit
  • Pour half of the marinara sauce over the top, then spread with half of the ricotta
  • Add another layer of lasagne sheets
  • Cover with the remaining marinara sauce and ricotta, and top with the sheep’s cheese
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminium foil and bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes
  • Remove the foil, turn on the broiler and broil for 5 minutes, until the sheets are soft and the cheese is browned and bubbling
  • Let the Sheep’s Cheese lasagne rest for 10 minutes before serving
