Ingredients

Filling

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large red onion, chopped
1 large red pepper, deseeded and chopped
100 g spinach, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 chicken breasts, diced
2 x 400g tins cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp sundried tomato paste
Dash of sugar (optional)

6 dried lasagne sheets

Sauce

45g butter
45g flour
600ml milk
100g Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Method
  1.  Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the garlic, pepper and chicken and gently fry for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, sundried tomato paste, sugar (if using) and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the spinach, stir until wilted.
  2. To make the cheese sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour, then whisk in the milk. Whisk over the heat until thickened. Add the mustard and two thirds of the cheese and season to taste.
  3. Spoon a third of the tomato sauce in the base of an ovenproof dish. Spoon a third of the cheese sauce on top. Arrange the three sheets of lasagne on top. Repeat twice so you have 2 layers of lasagne and three layers of tomato and cheese sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 200C Fan / 220C / Gas Mark 6 or until bubbling and the pasta is soft.
