  • 2 onion peeled and chopped

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 500g spinach

  • 300ml vegetable stock hot

  • 1.5 nutmeg freshly grated

  • 1kg squash peeled and cut into cubes

  • 2 cloves garlic crushed

  • 75g stilton crumbled

  • 250ml creme fraiche reduced fat

  • 200g chestnut mushrooms chopped

  • 6 fresh lasagne sheets


  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Put the squash in a roasting tin, drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle over the nutmeg.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the onions for 3 minutes over a gentle heat, then add the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the mushrooms, and cook for 5 minutes to soften. Spoon in the crème fraîche and pour in the stock, stir and simmer for 15 minutes until the liquid is reduced to a creamy consistency. Season.
  5. Pierce a couple of holes in the bag of spinach and microwave according to the pack instructions. Alternatively, empty into a pan, cover and cook until wilted. Drain in a colander and press to remove excess liquid. Crush the squash with a potato masher.
  6. Spread a thin layer of the mushroom sauce over the base of a large, shallow, oven-proof dish (30x20cm/12x8in) and top with 2 sheets of lasagne. Spoon half the squash over the lasagne. Sprinkle over half the spinach, then half of the remaining mushroom sauce. Top with 2 more sheets of lasagne and repeat the squash and spinach layer. Top with 2 more lasagne sheets and a final layer of mushroom sauce. Sprinkle over both the cheeses.
  7. Cover with greased foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for a further 30 minutes, until the topping is golden and bubbling. Serve immediately.

    At the end of the recipe it said sprinkle over both cheeses but only mentioned stilton in the ingredients. I found it was a Tesco recipe and mozzarella has been missed off. It also fails to say what you need to do with the onions, garlic, squash and mushrooms. It was very tasty and will make it again.
