  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan and saute onion and celery until soft. Add curry powder and saute a further minute. Add carrot, zucchini (courgette), brown lentils, tomatoes, tomato paste and salt. Bring mixture to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  2. To make sauce, place margarine in a bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 minute or until melted. Stir through flour, then microwave a further minute. Gradually add milk and then microwave for 8 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until mixture boils and thickens. Add cheese and salt and microwave for 1 minute.
  3. To assemble, line the base of a 20cm x 33cm ovenproof dish with lasagne sheets. Spread with half the lentil sauce, then half the white sauce. Repeat the layers, ending with the white sauce. Bake in a moderate oven, 180ºC, for 40 minutes. Serves 8.
