Valentine Lasagne

Valentine’s day, rather luckily, fell on a Saturday this year. This of course means the husband cooks dinner. I fancied a good lasagne, as vege lasagnes are in the main, quite disappointing in my experiece (maybe i’m just adept at choosing bad recipes!) There was a tasty, easy looking lasagne in the March edition of the new Cook Vegetarian magazine, so he decided to have a bash at it.

After informing me that he’s never really been fond of ‘skin and mince’ as he calls it, he set about his task. This was a foolproof recipe for mushroom and spinach lasagne, that tastes every bit as good as it looks. I only wish you could smell it.


2tbsp olive oil

180g pack spinach leaves

2 garlic cloves, chopped

250 mushrooms, sliced

400g can chopped tomatoes with basil

fresh lasagne sheets

400ml creme fraiche

100g mature cheddar

1/2 tsp nutmeg

heat the oven to 200c

fry the spinach and half the garlic in 1tbsp oil, until the leaves have wilted. remove from the heat, season, and set aside

in the remaining oil, fry the mushrooms until browned. stir in the remaining garlic.

Mix in the tomatoes, bring to the boil, and simmer for a couple of minutes. remove from the heat.

season the creme fraiche with nutmeg and ground pepper.

now layer up the lasagne:

put half the mushroom mixture in the bottom of the lasagne dish.
