Truffled Pumpkin and Leek Lasagne

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Peel, de-seed and cut butternut pumpkin into 1 cm slices.
  3. Wash and thinly slice leeks.
  4. Place pumpkin slices in a single layer in an oiled baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 35-40 minutes or until lightly golden and tender.
  5. Heat the truffle butter on a low heat in a large heavy-based frying pan and add the sliced leeks. Saute until soft but still uncoloured, around 15 minutes.

  7. Top with parmesan and sliced bocconcini and carefully pour the rest of the cream over the dish.
  8. Bake in oven for around 45 minutes or under golden.
  9. Shave extra truffle!!
