Our best loved spinach lasagna recipe, and its variations.
For special occasions the spinach lasagne recipe is a good choice. It is one of those dishes everyone looks forward to and remembers afterwards. All the same if it is prepared as an all vegetable lasagne or with salmon.
Prepare the Béchamel sauce and let simmer for a while at the lowest heat. Stir regularly!
Meanwhile wash the spinach thoroughly then spin dry. Shred carrots and onions.
Choose a big pot and heat olive oil to fry the onions and small diced or squashed garlic until clear. We usually use our soup pot since fresh spinach is quite voluminous. Then add the carrots, season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir! Finally add the spinach. (If the amount seems to much let simmer and stir under before you add the remaining spinach.)
Putting everything of the spinach lasagna recipe together:
Oil your tray place the first layer of lasagne sheet in and cover with one third of your béchamel sauce. Half the filling and spread it onto the first layer. place the second layer followed by the second third of sauce and the second half of the filling.Top it with the third pasta sheet. Finish it off with the rest of the sauce and sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese.
Bake for 25-35 minutes at 180C°. Convert! This depends on oven and lasagna sheets used. To avoid surprises check in the last minutes.
Depending on season spinach might be difficult to find. Silver-beet proofed to be an excellent substitute we even tried it once successfully with the leaves of broccoli (just the leaves).
Our produce grower had too many during the broccoli harvest. Everyone asked the leaves of the broccoli to be cut off. It was their loss and our gain. He asked if we would like them. Naturally mum was as uninformed as everyone else, but asked what you could do with it. His reply was just use them like you would use spinach.
Transform the spinach lasagna recipe into a salmon lasagna
A special treat is to spread on each layer cubes or slices of salmon. If we use supermarket bought smoked salmon 300gr are enough to give a fantastic flavour. Do we use fresh salmon we take about 500-600gr.
