How to make it

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 375F/190C/gas5.
  • 2. To make lasagne: roll out the pasta dough (if using fresh) on a lightly floured surface to make a single sheet3mm/1/8in thick. Cut into rectangles about 10x20cm/4x8in in size.
  • 3. Cook the fresh or dried pasta, adding the pieces one by one to boiling water to which you have added salt and 1 tbsp of oil, to prevent the pasta sticking. Allow 5 minutes cooking time for fresh pasta, 8-10 minutes for dried. Carefully remove the pasta and pat dry on clean tea towels.
  • 4. To make the spinach balls: cook the spinach in a little water until tender, drain well and chop finely. Mix the spinach in a little water until tender, drain well and chop finely. Mix the spinach with 1 tbsp beaten egg, the dried breadcrumbs and 25g/1oz of the parmesan cheese. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste. Using your hands to shape the spinach mixture into walnut-sized balls.
  • 5. Heat enough oil to deep fry the spinach balls, until lightly browned on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on paper towels.
  • 6. To prepare the aubergines: put half of the other 2 beaten eggs in a dish. Dip the aubergine slices into the flour and then into beaten egg. Heat enough oil to deep fry the aubergine, until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on paper towels.
  • 7. Prepare the courgettes in the same way as the aubergines, dipping them into flour and beaten egg, then deep frying them. Set aside on paper towels.
  • 8. To prepare the mushrooms: heat 1 tbsp oil in a separate frying pan, add the mushroom slices and fry briefly. Stir in the garlic and parsley with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 9. To assemble the lasagne: put 3-4 tbsp tomato sauce on the bottom of a large baking dish. Cover with a layer of pasta. Next add a layer each of the mushrooms, the courgettes, aubergine and spinach balls. Add some of the fontina cheese. Now add 3-4 tbsp tomato sauce, 3-4 tbsp of the beaten eggs and a generous sprinkle of the remaining parmesan cheese.
  • 10. Starting with a layer of pasta repeat the sequence of layers until the ingredients are all used, finishing with a layer of vegetables.
  • 11. Bake for 20 minutes. Cut into portions and serve.

    Does this freeze well? It sounds great but cooking for myself I like to portion out the finished product and freeze for dinners later in the month.
