Thermomix Chicken and Pumpkin Lasagna

A Chicken and Pumpkin Lasagna recipe with a delicious tomato base, hints of baby spinach, and a topping of creamy white sauce and golden tasty cheese – the perfect meal for freezing!

My whole family enjoy lasagna, especially when we have the time to make it from scratch! It’s a great meal to freeze too, which is why I always make extras, whether they be for my family or a new mum friend who could do with an extra meal in the freezer.

 I find this recipe tastes even better eaten the day after!

Thermomix Chicken and Pumpkin Lasagna recipe

I actually made this Thermomix Chicken and Pumpkin Lasagna for a friend who had a baby. It meant she had an extra meal in her freezer or fridge that was ready to cook on a night she didn’t feel like cooking. Find 50 more meal ideas you can gift a new mum here

I made this recipe in the Thermomix (original recipe from TRTLMT), but if you’re preferring some traditional oven-cooked lasagna recipes, you may enjoy these ones:

I seem to have consistent trouble printing your recipes. Every time I tap the Print button – on MAC or PC – it take me to a blank page. What am I doing wrong? Love the look of this lasagna!!
