Pancake Lasagne

This is a recipe I have been making for over 30 years – it came about when a friend wanted to make lasagne for dinner but we didn’t have a square casserole dish in the house so she decided to make it with round pancakes!  What a gem of a recipe this turned out to be…

The ingredients can be amended to accommodate just about any combination you fancy – want some meat sauce in there – just add it in.  Want to make it with tuna – add a tin of tuna to the cheese sauce!  The possibilities are endless.

Just one point – this is a labour of love – you need to assemble everything before you start then it’s a breeze to put together.  I haven’t included recipes for the tomato sauce or the pancakes – everyone know how to make them!

And here is the finished product straigh out of the oven.  Cut it into wedges like a cake and serve with a green salad – delicious…

Pancake Lasagne just out the oven



6 large pancakes

450g box frozen spinach (cooked as per instruction on pack)

6 hardboiled eggs, sliced

Approx. 2 cup Napolitano sauce (homemade Italian tomato sauce)

Approx. 2 cups thick cheese sauce

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Have all the ingredients ready to assemble

Place a tablespoon or so in the bottom of a round casserole dish

Lay down a pancake

Top with a couple of tablespoons of tomato sauce, a sprinkling of spinach and a sliced boiled egg

Top with another pancake

Continue to layer until all the ingredients are used

Finish with a plain pancake for the top layer

Carefully pour over the thick cheese sauce until the top is covered

The sauce will slowly fill in all the gaps around pancakes and filling

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and some freshly ground nutmeg

Bale in 180c fan-forced oven for around 40 minutes or until top is golden and bubbly.

Cut into wedges like a cake and serve

Excellent with a green salad

Bon Appetit!  🙂

Lizzie’s Lasagne

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

Lizzies Lasagne

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
grated nutmeg
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! 🙂
