Equipment

  • Ovenproof dish

Ingredients
 
 

For Spinach Bechamel:

  • 35 g butter
  • 35 g flour
  • 500 ml milk
  • 200 g spinach
  • 5 g basil
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 50 g mature cheddar coarsely grated

For Lasagne:

  • 1 large aubergine
  • 1 large courgette
  • 4 tbsp tinned tomatoes or passata
  • 7 -8 lasagne sheets
  • 100 g cream cheese
  • 1 garlic cloves crushed or finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 125 g mozzarella torn into pieces
  • 60 g spinach optional
  • 25 g parmesan finely grated

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C Fan. Line two large baking sheets with baking parchment.
  • Top and tail courgettes and aubergine. Slice them lengthways into 0.5cm slices. Lay then onto baking sheets in a single layer, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 25-30 minutes until softened.
  • In the meantime, make bechamel sauce. Pour a kettle of boiling water over the spinach and leave to cool down. In a large pan, melt the butter on low heat. Add the flour and stir until you have a thick paste. Little by little start adding the milk, whisking continuously, making sure no lumps form. Finally add the spinach squeezing out any extra moisture as you add them. Carry on stirring on low heat until the sauce has thickened. Take the sauce off the heat, stir in the basil, cheddar and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, minced garlic and spring onion.
  • Add half of the chopped tomatoes/ passata to the bottom of the ovenproof dish. Lay a third of lasagne sheets on top. Then lay a third of cooked courgette and aubergine slices. Spoon a third of the cream cheese mixture on top fo the veggies, scatter a third of the spinach, a third of mozzarella and pour a third of bechamel of on top. Spoon the rest of the tomatoes on top of the bechamel.
  • Repeat the layering process twice more, finishing with a layer of bechamel. Then scatter the grated parmesan on top.
  • Place the lasagne in the oven (preheated to 180C) for 45-50 minutes.
  • When lasagne is cooked, leave it out of the oven for 5 minutes before cutting it into portions.
