How To Cook

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan until it reaches near smoking point, then turn the heat down a little and add in the mushrooms along with the thyme. After two minutes add in the garlic and cook for a further two minutes.
  2. Now make a white sauce: melt the butter in a small pan, then stir in the flour to form a roux. Cook for a further 30 seconds before gradually incorporating the milk, whisking continuously to avoid any lumps. Grate in the nutmeg and season to taste.
  3. Add a thin layer of the white sauce to the bottom of a baking dish, followed by a layer of lasagne sheets. Top with another layer of white sauce followed by 1/3 of the mushrooms, walnuts and spinach, scattered with 1/3 of the cottage cheese. Repeat for a further two layers, finishing with a layer of white sauce. Scatter the top with the Cheddar and Parmesan-style cheese to finish.
  4. Bake the lasagne in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and bubbling on top.
