Add salt and pepper to taste. Then mix in the mashed potatoes.
ASSEMBLING:


Add a layer of white sauce to a dish and place the boiled lasagna strips. Layer with some red sauce and capsicum, mushrooms, then a few tablespoons of white sauce. Another lasagna layer, then some meat sauce, a few tablespoons of white sauce, another layer of lasagna sheets and so on. Cover with remaining white sauce and top with shredded cheese or sliced cheese and mushrooms. Bake till golden brown in color. Let it rest on the counter top for about 10 minutes before cutting to ensure it doesn’t fall apart!
P.S. i couldn’t wait to get my hands on it hence you can see the layers disturbed and slightly falling:P
