If there is one meal that I am drawn too when wanting (a) something I can put together in advance and (b) yields enough for multiple meals, it is always lasagne.
A great way to use up whatever veggies and ingredients you have on hand when pulling together the meat sauce..
(in this case it was pancetta, celery, carrots and onion).
And an easy dish to have bubbling away on the stove with relatively little attention.
And, as for the layering, with the help of a ricotta sauce (in place of béchamel) and some fresh lasagne sheets – well it really is very simple.
(ricotta, an egg, frozen spinach (thawed) and a handful of grated parmesan).
Once the layering is done (think sauce, lasagne sheets, ricotta, repeat), and the whole dish is given a generous sprinkling of mozzarella and parmesan, just cover and set it aside until it is time to bake!
30-40 minutes later – and dinner is served!
So much cheesy, meaty goodness – oh and the healthy addition of spinach right?!
Served with a side salad – and you have yourself lunch / dinner for the next day (plus some portions to place in the freezer).
Yup I do really love lasagne.
What about you? Are you a fan of lasagne?
