1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Place kumara in a saucepan of water and bring to the boil. Cook until kumara is soft then mash.
2 Heat a non-stick saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add a little oil spray then garlic and mince and brown all over. Add passata and stir. Turn off heat.
3 Spray the base of a heatproof dish with oil. Lay 1 wrap on base then layer mince, mashed kumara and carrot on top. Spread all of the cottage cheese over another wrap then lay wrap, cottage cheese-side down, on top of carrot. Repeat layering: mince, mashed kumara then carrot on top. Finish with a layer of parmesan.
4 Cook in oven for 15 minutes. Season with black pepper and garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if preferred. Serve with salad.
