Reader Recipes: Nige’s baked bean lasagne

.Nige’s Baked Bean Lasagne, serves 4.

Nige said… “I’ve been making this for a couple months now, two of our family of four are vegetarian and this gave them an option from the classic meat version. Most of the products are based on an Aldi shop with the addition of Tesco Every Day Lasagne sheets which are currently half the price of Aldi.”

Shopping List:

Lasagne Sheets Tesco 33p pack of 13 sheets
Every Day Aldi Baked Beans 1 tin 25p
Aldi Tomato & Herb Pasta Sauce 39p
Aldi Lasagne Sauce 75p
Aldi pack of 6 Tomatos 49p
Aldi Every Day Grated Cheese 450g pack 1.99


6 Lasagne sheets 18p
1 Tin Baked Beans 25p
Half Jar Tomato & Herb Pasta Sauce 18p
1 Jar Lasagne Sauce 75p
1 Tomato thinly sliced 8p
100g Grated Cheese 44p


Use a table spoon and layer one spoon of baked beans onto a suitable lasagne/pasta dish, create two layers and then top with one lasagne sheet. Repeat until you have 2 stacks, each with 3 layers of baked beans and lasagne sheets. Pour over the full jar of lasagne sauce making sure that all of the sheets are covered. Use the half jar of tomato & herb pasta sauce to spoon evenly around the edges and between the two stacks. Layer the sliced tomato over the top of each stack and sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake in a hot oven, 200c for around 30-35 minutes.

“This lasagne lasts four of us for one evening meal or two of us two days.

Regards, Nigel”

  1. I have prepared this for tonight’s tea, can’t wait to try it. Its in the fridge soaking away and getting all lovely mmmmmmm. The jar of sauce I had in the cupboard was for a tuna pasta bake so, and to add an extra dose of protein, I added tuna to each layer.

    Very easy to prepare and minimal washing up too. Perfect 🙂

    Thanks, Nigel and Jack!!


  2. I remember discovering baked bean lasagne many years ago when my lad was very young. I never got on with lasagne sheets, I always got hard edges so I cooked up my own variation – pancake lasagne! Made with baked beans and tuna or pilchards, the pancakes lend themselves to lasagne and canneloni (?) – where you wrap the food in the sheet and then pour sauce and bake.
