Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan forced oven. Peel and chopped Sweet Potato and place in a large saucepan of boiling salted water and cook for 10 to 15mins or until you can put a fork through with ease. Drain. Place Potato back into saucepan and mash until smooth. If you like you can use a food processor too.

In a food processor add butter beans, spinach, basil, egg yolk and sweet potato until well combined and smooth. Cut lasagna sheets in half. Place ¼ cup of the mixture along the long edge of each piece. Roll up to enclose filling and place seam side downward so it doesn’t unroll. Repeat with remaining mixture and lasagna sheets.

Step 3
