Butternut, Chevin & Speck Lasagne

Hello old friends, It's been a while since I actually posted a recipe on my site. Most of my recipes and foodie news are posted on my Instagram and Facebook. If you want to see what I've up to professionally, check out my LinkedIn profile. Some big news... Hubby, the furbabies and I are relocating to Kuwait for a few years. J got a job offer we couldn't refuse and I will be finding my feet and exploring the Middle Eastern & International food scene. It's going to be a massive change on so many levels, but we are so excited about this new adventure. So in October, I will officially leave my home, Cape Town, South Africa.  I hope to post on my blog more often to stay connected to you all. To keep myself distracted from work and life admin I'm dealing with at the moment, I made this Roasted Butternut Lasagne with Goats Cheese & Speck. It was so good that I shared it on my social media and asked whether I should post the recipe. It was a resounding yes from my loyal ''followers''. So here it is guys.  Thanks for all the support lovelies xx
