Can You Slim Down Lasagna?

…. the anwser is yes you can do it! Seriously… and I’m so not kidding you. Lasagna was always to me about white sauce, plenty of white sauce, tomato sauce and decadent amount of cheese. As mentioned before Mom is sentenced to low fat food as otherwise her body seems to have huge issue with it. But Mom loves Italian food and loves lasagna, so she wants it and I will make it for her. Challenge excepted! Allez…

First thing was to get rid of white sauce – too much cheese, too much flour, too much milk. I substituted that with layer of spinach with garlic and lovely mashroom sauce with few spoons of sour cream and 1 spoon of flour.

This is simple lasagna, quick fix if you like but pack with goodies. So let’s get cracking with recipe:

Skinny Lasagna is Skinny

portion of your favourite bolognese sauce
200g of mushroom, sliced
ca 100g sour cream
1-2 tbsp flour
1 pack of frozen spinach leaves
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 lemon, juice
salt,
pepper
herbs of your choice
handful grated cheese of your choice
1 pack of lasagna

Now it’s all about clever assembling. First of all give mushrooms a nice quick fry on olive oil, if you fancy you can slice/dice an onion or two for extra kick. When fried, mix well flour and cream and add to the pan, add some water and mix until nice and creamy and cooked. Set aside. In the other pan heat some olive oil, add garlic and defrosted spinach. Give it a quick fry and add lemon juice, season to taste.

In the lasagna form pour on the bottom some mushroom sauce, then layer of pasta, spinach, pasta, tomato sauce, pasta, mushroom sauce, pasta, tomato sauce, cheese :)
Now place in the oven and cook for about 40-45mins on about 200C. MIght be longer if you have a big portion of lasagna or you making two, just to save time and have sth tasty in deep freezer. Just watch pasta and you will know when it’s ready. Easy? Easy peasy…. now stuff your face and have glass of red with it, coz you so deserved it!
