Place the onion, garlic, peppers, courgettes, mushrooms and tomatoes in a saucepan and stir to mix. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, make the white sauce. Place the St Ivel Gold Light, flour, mustard powder and milk in a saucepan. Heat gently, whisking continuously, until the sauce comes to the boil and thickens. Simmer gently for 3 minutes, whisking.
Remove the pan from the heat, add 75g (3oz) cheese and seasoning and mix well.
Stir the chopped herbs into the vegetable mixture.
Now assemble the lasagne. Spoon half the vegetable mixture over the base of a shallow baking tin or ovenproof dish. Cover this with half the pasta and top with one third of the cheese sauce.
Repeat these layers, topping with the remaining cheese sauce to cover the pasta completely. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
Bake in a preheated oven at 190C / 375F / gas mark 5, for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown on top.
Garnish the lasagne with fresh thyme sprigs. Serve immediately with a mixed side salad.
To add extra flavour to the milk, place the milk in a saucepan with a small piece of onion, 1 sliced carrot, 1 sliced celery stick, 1 bay leaf and a few black peppercorns. Bring to the boil, remove from the heat, cover and set aside to infuse for 30 minutes. Strain, reserving the milk. Use to make the sauce as above.
Use reduced-fat Cheddar cheese in place of the Red Leicester cheese.
