Okay so I was at the supermarche with no real idea of what to make for dinner and ended up with spinach, mushrooms, lasagne sheets, parmesan, butter, milk etc - and thought, great, I'll do a spinach & mushroom lasagne. Now I get home and all the recipes say that you need ricotta cheese/ cottage cheese. Wouldn't this be cheese overload, what with the white sauce and all? And I really can't be a*sed to go back to the shops. Can I just do a layer of lasagne sheets, a layer of spinach and mushroom mixture (maybe with some tomato, if it has to be a bit wetter?) and a layer of cheese sauce? Will this work?

do what you like, love
AFAIA there are no lasagne Police operating in your area this month.

ugh, what I am getting at is whether anyone knows whether his will work - not whether I have permission - but, oh, thanks ever so much for clearing THAT part of it up for me!

OK then, put some double cream and nutmeg in with the spinach and mushrooms and some toasted pinenuts for texture

tomatoes sounds fine, i wouldn't worry too much.... there are about 200 million differant versions of lasagne and they mostly taste fine
