Spinach Tomato Sauce and 3 Cheese Lasagna

Method

                                                                                                                                                 Photo credit: G. Drakopoulos - Food Styling: T. Webb

  • Sauté the onion in some olive oil, in a pot.
  • Add the garlic and sauté 2 minutes more.
  • Add the spinach in batches to soften it. Add 2-3 pinches of salt to help it along. You don’t want the spinach to release all of its liquid. It needs to be juicy so that the lasagna can use its moisture to soften more.
  • Add the fresh onions and herbs. Give it a toss so that the herbs give their aroma to the spinach.
  • Remove from pot and put in a bowl.
  • Turn on the oven and heat to 200* C (390* F).
  • Brush some olive oil onto the pyrex or baking dish.
  • Add 2-3 tablespoons of sauce. Mix with the olive oil to coat the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Add the first layer of lasagna.
  • Add 1/3 of the spinach mixture.
  • Top with ¼ of the sauce and ¼ of the cheese.
  • Make another 2 layers of all the ingredients (lasagna, spinach, sauce, cheese)…
  • Finish with a layer of lasagna and the remaining sauce and cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until you can see the food bubbling through the side of the baking dish, the cheese has melted and the whole house smells divine…
