Vegetable Lasagne with Fior di Vita Halloumi

Fior di Vita Halloumi vegetable lasagne

Lasagne is a favourite all-season dish and is a sure win with family and guests. Veggy Malta prepares this vegetarian vegetable lasagne which is easy to prepare but intensely tasty. Adding with it slices of Halloumi cheese which doesn’t melt inside the oven (since it has a high melting point) and gives that extra punch to the dish. As a traditional cheese one should look for Cypriot Halloumi.
