2 tablespoons oil
1 large onion
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto
660 grams canned crushed tomatoes
100 grams fresh lasagne sheets
1 cup grated tasty cheddar cheese

80 grams butter
50 grams plain flour
625 mls milk
44 grams grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees celsius
2. Peel and slice vegetables. Place pumpkin and sweet potato in a separate bowl and the rest of the vegetables in another bowl
3. Season both bowls with salt and pepper, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil and and toss to coat with oil.
4. Place the pumpkin and sweet potato on a baking tray and roast in oven for 10 minutes

6. Add the remaining vegetables and roast for about 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Turn the vegetables over once during cooking.
7. While the vegetables are roasting, heat a tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft (about 2-3 minutes).
8. Add garlic and pesto and cook for another minute. Stir in crushed tomatoes. Reduce heat and simmer for approximately 10 minutes, until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and stir in roasted vegetables.

10. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until sauce is smooth. Continue cooking until sauce bubbles and thickens. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
