Spinach and Corn lasagna

I usually cook the lasagna sheets before making a lasagna but recently I came across a couple of recipes that urged me to try the uncooked version. may I say the results are fantastic and obviously more effective.

This post is a part of the Electric Appliance theme at BM#24 hosted by Srivalli.

Appliance highlighted- OTG.

You shall need: [Serves 1]

For bechamel Sauce-

3 tbsp… Butter

2 tbsp… All Purpose Flour/maida

1 cup…milk [Plus more to adjust the thickness]

To add to the sauce-

15-20… Washed leaves of Spinach [Blanch them in boiling water for 1 min and then put under cold water.]

1/3 cup… American Corn [Boiled]

1/2 + 1./4 cup … Cheese of your choice [I used cheddar and processed half and half]

Salt and pepper

3 sheets of lasagna pasta

Method-

  • heat the milk and keep aside.
  • In a heavy pan, melt the butter.
  • Add the flour and stir well and quickly.
  • It shall look like a scattered mass of flour and butter but keep stirring it until a uniform mass of flour is not formed.
  • After cooking it for 4-5 min, the flour shall turn slightly brown.
  • Add a couple of tbsp of milk to moisten the flour and butter.
  • Take a whisk and add the remaining milk while stirring constantly.
  • You shall be left with creamy sauce.
  • At this point, add salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese, corn and spinach.
  • Mix well and keep aside until use.
  • Pre heat oven to 165-170 C.
  • In a baking tray, put some sauce in the bottom of the tray.
  • Put a sheet of pasta on top of it.
  • layer with some more sauce and repeat the process.
  • Once the 3rd sheet is placed on the sauce, pour the remaining sauce.
  • Now add the 1/3 cup cheese on top.
