Pork, Spinach and Mushroom Lasagne

Pork Spinach and Mushroom Lasagne

There are three sauces in this, a pork ragu, a spinach bechamel and a creamy mushroom, so I'll be honest and say it was a bit of a faff (my Nana loved that word) to make and put together - but well worth it when it came to tasting! It's beautifully rich and creamy and fantastic with a slice of garlic bread.

Pork Spinach and Mushroom Lasagne


PORK, SPINACH AND MUSHROOM LASAGNE

| Serves: 6  | Prep Time: 1 Hour | Cook Time: 30 Minutes | Total Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes |


INGREDIENTS:


  • 375g Lasagne sheets
  • 50g Parmesan, grated
  • For the Ragu:
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 900g minced pork
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 TBSP Sage, chopped
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 x 400g Tins if Chopped Tomatoes
  • For the Mushroom Sauce:
  • 110g Butter
  • 600g Mushrooms
  • 200ml double cream
  • 10 spring onions, chopped
  • Bechamel:
  • 50g Butter
  • 50g Flour
  • 700ml Milk
  • 200g Cheddar
  • 3 tsp English Mustard
  • 200g Spinach, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS:


  • Step 1: Prepare the ragu by frying the onion for 10 minutes until soft then add the rest of the ragu ingredients and simmer for 40 minutes.
  • Step 2: Prepare the mushroom sauce by melting the butter, adding in the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook on a high heat for 5 minutes. Add the cream and continue to cook for 5 minutes, remove from heat and sprinkle in the spring onions.
  • Step 3: Prepare the bechamel sauce by melting the butter, adding the flour to make a roux, then gradually whisking in the milk, continue to whisk until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the grated cheddar, mustard, salt and pepper. Add the spinach and put it back on the heat until wilted.
  • Step 4: Butter a large lasagne dish then spread a little spinach bechamel on the bottom, lay over lasagne sheets. Then spread over the ragu, followed by a layer of spinach becahamel and finally mushroom sauce. Start again with the lasagne sheets, ragu, spinach bechamel and finally mushroom sauce. Continue until all the sauces are used up except the spinach bechamel, which you need this for the top. Finish with the spinach bechamel and sprinkle over the Parmesan.
  • Step 5: Bake in oven (200c/180Cfan) for 30 minutes.

  11. Hi Garth. Rachel Allen makes a more involved bechamel infusing the milk with bay leaf and onion before using it. I just made a basic one as written.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Slow Cooker Boeuf Bourguignon

France has always held a soft spot in my heart. From the Pink Granite Coast around Plumanac'h where I spent many childhood holidays, to the sun, sea and cosmopolitan air of Nice on the French Riviera, it really does offer everything you could want, especially when it comes to food and drink.

Simple mussels in a garlicky white wine sauce in La Rochelle, a divine cassoulet in Toulouse... oh and I cant't forget the amazing tartiflette in Les Arc on a skiing trip. These are just a few of the French foodie memories that I've locked away for prosperity. But the best...well, that was an amazing clafouti aux cerises (Cherry Clafoutis) eaten with my then boyfriend (now husband) in Canal St Martin, Paris - an area just north of the famous Le Marais district. It was silky, creamy, almondy and utterly sublime. Such a simple dessert but made to perfection.



Given all of these fond memories of France, when Expedia asked me to develop a French themed Valentines Day menu, I didn't quite …
