  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Spray a large frying pan with oil. Heat over high heat. Cook pumpkin and zucchini, in batches, for 1-2 mins each side or until lightly browned. Transfer to a baking tray.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until softened. Add the mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 mins or until cooked through. Add the pasta sauce and 1/2 cup (125ml) water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-7 mins or until thickened slightly. Stir in the capsicum and basil.

  3. Step 3

    Spread half the meat mixture over base of a 6-cup (1.5L) ovenproof dish. Top with half the pumpkin and half the zucchini. Drizzle with 1/4 cup (60ml) bechamel sauce. Top with 3 lasagne sheets, trimming to fit. Top with the remaining mince mixture, pumpkin, zucchini and 1/4 cup (60ml) of remaining bechamel sauce. Finish with remaining lasagne sheets and remaining bechamel sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.

  4. Step 4

    Bake for 30 mins or until golden and heated through. Stand for 5 mins before cutting into slices to serve.
