To make the pasta : Finely slice the courgette lengthways using a peeler.
To make the tomato sauce: Add all of the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. Tip out into a jug.
To make the muhroom mince:  Add the mushrooms to your food processor and pulse into small mince-like pieces. Add to a jug and stir in the tamari soy sauce.
To make the pesto: Add all of the ingredients to your blender and process into a chunky paste. You may wish to add a little water to it to make it more spreadable for the lasagne.

    how do you find the courgette/zuchinni pasta? is it as tasty as traditional gluten/wheat pasta?

      sorry for the misunderstanding! the “pasta” is not actually pasta, just regular courgette pretending to be pasta!

        :D I do understand this … it is just my wife (me by proxy) has been placed on a gluten free lifestyle and “pasta” dishes are my favourite and so I was wondering how this compared to say the gluten filled original … sorry I did not make my understanding and question more clear.

    This may seem like a silly question but could you tell me the proper name of that plate the food is on? I always tell people I want those plates used for salad at Mongolian Grill but no one ever knows what I’m talking about!

    OK guys, Just a little advice its not food related but i just watched you all in a program… My partner wants me to go to a nudist camp… I think i like the idea, well it did not bother me watching the program, i am going to go no matter how nervous i get.
    But do you have any confidence tips, as i’m not small built. maybe i rely on clothes too much! I was just wondering when you see people who are nervous do you have any confidence tips etc… Thanks guys
