Chicken, Ham and Spinach Lasagne

Chicken, Ham and Spinach Lasagne

This lasagne utilised the leftover meat I had in my fridge, both from my Sunday Roast and also the large gammon I cooked on New Years Day.

Ingredients:

  • 75g Butter
  • 1 Onion, chopped

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180c (350f). Melt 25g of the Butter in a pan and gently fry the Onion and Garlic for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove from the pan and set to the side.

Spoon over another third of the sauce then cover with lasagne sheets. Finally spoon over final third of the sauce and top with grated cheddar.
  • Step 5: Bake for 55 minutes in oven.
