Method

Make the filling first. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and sauté the garlic and onion for about 3 minutes. Add the mush­rooms and continue to cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the spinach and nutmeg and cook for about 5 minutes, then stir in the soft cheese and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the cheese has melted and blended with the spinach mixture. Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 400°F/Gas Mark 6.


To assemble the lasagne, butter a lasagne dish and place a layer of lasagne on the bottom. Spoon some of the spinach mixture evenly over it, then add another layer of lasagne. Continue layering the pasta and spinach mixture alternately until both are used up, then pour the Cheese Sauce evenly over the top.


Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the lasagne and bake for about 40 minutes, until golden and bubbling.
