Who doesn’t love lasagne? I know I do! So today I thought I would bring you an easier, healthier alternative to meat lasagne. I have to be honest, I myself was a bit sceptical at first about putting spinach and ricotta in my lasagne. But having tried it, this is now one of my favourite dishes.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Spinach
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • White sauce
  • Lasagne sheets
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Ham (optional)

How to Make it

Step #1

Cook the spinach in a sauce pan with a little bit of salt and pepper. Turn off the heat, now add the ricotta cheese in making sure to it well with the spinach.

Step #3

The next step is to layer your pasta and ricotta-spinach mix.  Start by placing one layer of lasagne on top of the sauce you’ve spread on the base.  Now spread more bechamel on top of the pasta sheet.  Follow this with a layer of the spinach mixture, then with a bit of parmesan cheese on top.

Step #4

Repeat to create a few layers:  Lasagne pasta, bechamel sauce, the spinach-ricotta mix, a sprinkle of parmesan . Keep going with the layers until you almost reach the top of the lasagne dish. Top the final layer with a generous amount of parmesan cheese.

Step #5

Pop the dish in a preheated oven at 160º Celsius for about 40 minutes.  When it’s cooked, remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 – 10 minutes.
