Spinach & Mushroom Lasagna

Another new recipe. That is 2 this week. I made a spinach & mushroom lasagna. It was great, although it took a long time to cook. I made the sauce from scratch, something I had never done before, and it took over an hour to reduce enough. It was worth it though. We had friends over for dinner who seemed to like it too, which was good. I am always nervous when other people try my food.

I served it with a garden salad and some sweet potato wedges that I got out of my Vegie Food book. I didn't actually like the wedges. They were way too oily. I will try them again, but with a lot less oil.

Despite how long this took to prepare, I actually really enjoyed it. I spent half the afternoon in the kitchen, chopping, and stirring, and measuring, and tasting. It was a wonderful way to spend the day.

That looks absolutely delicious Kylie - I might even have been tempted to have some myself - I hate spinach though and it has to be well disguised - LOL.

Linda, you can barely taste the spinach. The sauce uses red wine, and I used a STRONG wine as it was all I had and that really disguised the spinach. ALthough, I have to say I used silverbeet in place of spinach as it is what I had...
LMK if you want the recipe and I will post the link.

I think i can slip that to the whole family - who are lasagne lovers :)

I have the recipe at home, and the link to it. I'll post the link for you. I altered it a little tiny bit, but you can do the same depending on your tastes.
