Chicken and Sweet Potato Lasagna

This Chicken and Sweet Potato Lasagna is a great twist on the traditional beef lasagna, with the delightful addition of vegetables hidden inside, carrots, zucchini, capsicum, onion, sweet potato and spinach. My kids loved it, which was fantastic. I first made this when I was trying to introduce more sweet potato into our diet.  I haven’t really loved sweet potato until recently, now it’s one of my favourite vegetables.

I found this recipe on the Thermomix recipe community, but it was missing a step so I have added it here.

Regular Recipe: I have found two very similar regular recipes on weight watchers and taste.com.au, which uses ricotta instead of a bechemel sauce, an even healthier option again.
