  • 2 bunches English spinach or Silverbeet – washed and chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 500 g reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 spring onions – ends trimmed, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped parsley

  • 2 cups  milk
  • Freshly ground or cracked black pepper – to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan forced).
  2. To help soften the pumpkin, microwave for 5 minutes, then cool.
  3. Boil water then place spinach into boiling water until wilted, drain well and squeeze out any excess liquid.
  4. In a large bowl mix ricotta, onion and parsley.
  5. Place 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.
