The ingredients (a bigger dish was needed!

Chatting to some good friends about basa(Vietnamese river cobbler, pangassius, panga, a type of catfish) recently, inspired me to create this dish. Basa is a really tasty, firm white fish that is, to my mind, nicer than cod, sustainable and about half the price.

We have fresh eggs from the chickens to make the lasagne and the rest of the ingredients were knocking about taken from the garden.

This was a fabulous dish and will be made again!

Chef's note

The amount of liquid in this dish was perfect for using with fresh pasta. However, if using dried pasta I would pre-cook the sheets in boiling water first or it is likely to dry the dish out. Refer to the packet for times.

I've made this many times, however this time it looked as though there would not be quite enough liquid so I added half a glass of white wine (or dry sherry / water:50/50) and mixed that in before cooking. Yum!
