Preheat oven to 180°C / Gas Mark 4 / 350°F
- Place the lasagne sheets in a shallow heatproof dish and pour over boiling water to cover. Let stand for 5 minutes then drain and pat dry.
- Cut 2cm from the bottom of each asparagus spear and discard. Chop the rest of the asparagus into 2-3cm pieces. Cook the asparagus in boiling water for 15 – 20 minutes until tender.
- Meanwhile finely chop the onion, very finely chop the garlic and slice the mushrooms.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and fry gently for 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until the onion is tender.
- Add the tomatoes to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Stir in the cooked asparagus and season with salt and black pepper and set aside.
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat and stir in the flour. When fully combined, stir in the milk a little at a time. When all the milk is in, and the sauce is smooth, stir in the cheddar cheese. Remove from the heat when the cheese has melted in.
- Put a thin layer of the vegetable sauce in an ovenproof dish, spoon on some of the cheese sauce and cover with lasagne.
- Repeat in layers until you have used all ingredients, ending with a lasagne sheet with a thin layer of cheese sauce. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top.
- Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
Serve with a crisp green salad.
