  • 500 g pumpkin or sweet potato, peeled and sliced
  • 2 bunches English spinach or young Silver beet, washed and sliced
  • 500 g reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 6 spring onions (including green tops), ends trimmed, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 12 sheets instant lasagne, softened in hot water
  • 425 g can no-added-salt tomato pasta sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbs plain flour
  • 2 cups reduced-fat milk
  • pepper, to taste
  • ground nutmeg, to taste
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan forced).
  2. Microwave the pumpkin for 5 minutes, then cool.
  3. Place spinach into boiling water until wilted, drain well and squeeze out any excess liquid.
  4. In a large bowl combine ricotta, onion and parsley.
  5. Arrange 3 sheets of lasagne on the base of an ovenproof pan (approx. 33cm x 23cm). Top with 1/3 each of pumpkin, tomato sauce and spinach ricotta mixture. Repeat twice and top with remaining lasagne sheets.
  6. To make topping, break eggs into flour and mix until smooth. Slowly add milk to flour mixture while whisking, pour into a saucepan and bring to the boil, continue whisking until smooth and thickened. Add pepper and ground nutmeg, pour over top of lasagne and sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

    Disgusting, needs to be cooked for much longer than 30 minutes. Very disappointed
