Developed by 10 years old Ella, this tasty and healthy quick-to-make veggie lasagne is the favourite food of her family!
Ella says about her recipe: "In my family, we eat meat and veggies, but this vegetarian recipe has always been everyone’s favourite. We kids even lick the plates! This recipe was developed at our cottage – a bit by accident, from the ingredients left in the cupboard.”
Heat up the oven to 200°C, 180°C for fan oven.
If you use frozen spinach, de-frost and drain it. If you use fresh spinach leaves, chop them in the bowl. Remove the stems from kale leaves and chop the leaves. Also chop onion and garlic. Put the mascarpone in the bowl and mix it with chopped vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour crushed tomatoes to another bowl and season with herbs, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Take a big oven dish and spread green sauce on the bottom. Add tomato sauce and lasagne sheets, layer by layer. Repeat. To fit the lasagne sheets in your dish, you can chop them a bit. Leave some crushed tomatoes for the top layer and sprinkle with grated cheese.
Cook the lasagne in the middle rack of the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until the surface is golden and the sheets softened.
Let the lasagne rest for a while before serving it.
