Time to share my first recipe of 2015. Lasagne is a firm favourite family meal in our household. Here is one variant that I make.
Ingredients (serves 2 adults and 2 children)
6 sheets of lasagne
200g frozen spinach
100g cooked chicken
75g frozen sweetcorn
50g plain flour
100g grated cheddar
salt and pepper to season
Preheat fan oven to 180 degrees.
Defrost the spinach in microwave.
Chop chicken into small pieces.
Grate the cheese
Melt margarine in jug in microwave.
Mix in flour.
Mix in about a quarter of the milk and heat for 1 minute on medium in microwave.
Continue to mix in milk, about a quarter at a time and heat for 1 minute each time.
Continue to heat for 1 minute intervals until sauce has thickened, stirring between heating.
Season with salt and pepper.
Stir in most of the grated cheese, reserving a small amount.
Stir in the sweetcorn, chicken and spinach.
Put about a third of the sauce in the bottom of an oven proof dish.
Cover with half the lasagne sheets.
Then cover with another third of the sauce.
Then cover with remaining lasagne sheets.
And then top with remaining sauce.
Sprinkle on the reserved grated cheese.
Cook for about 40 minutes in preheated oven until lasagne is soft, turning dish round halfway through cooking.
Serve and enjoy.
