My favourite food Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne

I love lasagne, but this is the best version in my opinion. A tomato sauce with a rosemary, thyme and a hint of chilli, a mixture of ricotta and spinach and a cheesy bechamel sauce...and arrest me if you must, I love it topped with cheddar rather than parmesan. Guilty. I just love the way cheddar melts, more than anything. I made this lasagne on Friday. They were all out of Ricotta in my local supermarket, so I made my own. It tasted very nice too, I must admit. I know it's not traditional with bechamel in spinach and ricotta lasagne, but I love it anyway (As you can see, I'm not a purist). Luckily, I made a large portion so I could eat it this evening too while the others ate Tarragon Chicken. Not only that, I can also eat it tomorrow! Good times.
I know it is a little naughty to re-heat spinach, but one makes exceptions. I served it with lots and lots of salad. Yesterday the avocado was still not ripe enough to eat, but today it was, thank God! I find myself slightly in panic if I don't have avocado. But that's another post.
What's your favourite lasagne?


  1. Cheddar is a little unconventional in lasagna, but it sure looks delicious. I love any lasagna, but maybe lasagna with butternut squash and sausage might be near the top of the list.

  2. You lasagna looks so tasty. I not sure what I would pick as my favorite, as I am easily swayed by what's in front of me.

  3. MMMM. I love lasagne. Yours sounds good. I like strong cheddar with it too but I melt it in the bachamel. Yum Yum

  4. This is one of my husband's all time favourite dishes and I am getting hungry looking at it :)
