  2 tsp chopped rosemary
organic lasagne sheets 
750g pasta sauce
     1kg zucchini, thinly sliced on diagonal
     250g mushrooms, thinly sliced
250g grated tasty cheese
125g parmesan cheese

Brown the sliced zucchini in a pan.

Smear the bottom of a lasagne dish with a bit of the pasta sauce. Lay 1/2 the zucchini slices over, smear on more sauce. Sprinkle with 1/4 of the combined cheeses. Place on a layer of lasagne sheets, then more sauce then all the mushrooms and the rosemary, then 1/3 of the rest of the cheese.

Place on another lasagne sheet, then sauce then the rest of the zuccini, the pepper and 1/2 the rest of the cheese.

Place on the last lasagne sheet then the rest of the sauce and the cheese, adding extra parmesan if necessary to fill the gaps.

(If using instant lasagne sheets, now pour 1/2 cup water in around the edges.)

Bake 190C for 10 mins.
Reduce to 170C for 20 - 30 mins until well browned.
If possible, let rest 10 mins before serving or even until next day.
