Everyone has their own Lasagne recipe and everyone makes it a different way. This one is quick and easy and absolutely delicious. I have also made it using curly fettucine which works very well if you don’t have any lasagne sheets in the house. Just cook them following the packet instructions and layer them as per the recipe. The texture is lovely and something a bit different
3 cups of your favourite bolognese sauce
500g packet of frozen spinach (I use Birdseye – it is more coarsely chopped)
1 packet of fresh lasagne noodles (approx 8 sheets)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoon plain flour
approx 2 cups milk
3 tablespoons sour cream
1 cup grated cheese
salt & pepper to taste
freshly grated parmesan cheese
additional grated nutmeg for topping
Cook the spinach according to directions on the box – about 4 minutes in a covered bowl in the microwave
Spread a couple of spoonfuls of bolognaise sauce on the bottom of your oven proof baking dish
Arrange lasagne sheets over the bottom cutting to size
Spoon over about a quarter of the spinach and a quarter of the bolognese sauce
Keep layering until all the pasta, sauce and spinach are used up. (I usually get 4 layers)
Make a thick cheese sauce adding the sour cream when thickened
Pour the sauce over the lasagne and top with the additional grated nutmeg, salt & pepper and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
Bake in 180c (fanforced) for about 40 minutes or until top is golden brown.
Leave to rest for a few minutes before cutting into blocks to serve.
Bon Appetit! 🙂
