    2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

    10-11 lasagne sheets

    1 tbsp vegetable bouillon

    2 garlic cloves, crushed

    1 tbsp tomato purée

    Pinch of paprika

    1 teaspoon oregano

    Black pepper

    1 tbsp olive oil

    100g grated low fat mozzarella cheese

    Light spray oil

    For the white sauce

    20g butter

    2 tbsp flour

    800ml low fat milk

     

    Method

     

    Heat the oil in a large pan and fry onions for few minutes. Add chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock and half of the washed spinach.

    Close lid and let the spinach cook into the sauce.

    Stir the sauce and add the rest of spinach once the first lot has wilted down. Stir in tomato puree, garlic, paprika, black pepper and oregano. Let it simmer for three minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Set aside until needed. To prepare the white sauce.

    Melt the butter in a pan. Add the flour and milk, stirring all the time.

    This sauce is meant to be very runny and only a minimum quantity of butter and flour is used to keep the calorie content down.

    Use spray oil to coat oven dish. Place a layer of white sauce in the bottom of the dish and cover with a layer of lasagne sheets.

    Pour more white sauce in the bottom so that the lasagne sheets are covered.

    Add a layer of vegetable mixture and over that another layer of white sauce and on top of that another layer of lasagne sheets.

    Carry on with white sauce and spinach mixture and lasagne sheets for another layer or two so that the last layer is spinach mixture. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top.

    Cover with tinfoil and place in oven at 200°C for approximately 40 minutes until lasagne is al dente.

    Serve.
