  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Add the mushrooms and thyme, then cook for 3 mins until they start to soften. Throw in the spinach and stir until the heat of the pan wilts the leaves. Remove from the heat and stir in the soft cheese, 1 tbsp of the Parmesan and some seasoning.

  2. Put a quarter of the spinach mix on the bottom of a medium-sized baking dish, lay 2 pasta sheets on top, then repeat until you have used all the pasta. Finish with the final quarter of the spinach mix, sprinkle over the rest of the Parmesan, then bake for 35 mins until golden and the pasta is tender.

This recipe makes lovely food but needs so much changing and this makes it not "quick" anymore. Firstly spinach need wilting in advanced so you can drain it properly as it's most water and the sos would be very watery. Than you need to fry mushrooms off to get rid of the water (I've added a shallot to a garlic). After that I've thrown spinach in and fried it a little more to combine well and get rid of any moisture left. At the end I've added herby soft cheese and parmesan. I've tripled quantities (except of soft cheese which I used a tub and a half ) as we are family of 5 and used dried lasagne sheets. Everyone loved it ! It will also taste great with tagliatelle.

Disappointing! I read the comments so knew I had to double the quantities of the spinach/mushroom mixture, which I did, but there still wasn't very much filling. I can't even imagine how meagre it would have been had I stuck to the original quantities! There was also way too much liquid. I guess a lot of water came from the mushrooms and spinach and so the sauce was very watery rather than creamy. Such a shame as the spinach/mushroom/cheese filling did taste nice, there just wasn't much of it and each portion, once plated up, sat in a sorry puddle!

I made this a couple of weeks ago and there wasn't nearly enough filling, I only made one layer so you can imagine how measly the lasagne looked. However I'm making it again today and doubling the ingredients as suggested so hopefully there will be more to enjoy. That aside it tastes delicious!

Just had this for lunch and it was absolutely delicious. I can see why people thought there wasn't enough filling, thankfully I'd already decided to add chestnuts and was using quite a small dish so I didn't have a problem. If I wasn't making it for vegetarians, I would be tempted to add some crispy bacon too. A great recipe experiment with.

Great idea, quantities needs some tweaking as other comments suggest but really tasty non the less.

Little bit disappointed. After reading the comments I used extra spinach and mushroom so I wouldn't run out but still did! Also, after baking the cheese was almost non-existent, had to make a cheese sauce the next day and insert it into each of the layers which made it remarkably better! I would advise making a cheese sauce either in addition to the mushroom and spinach or together, because it definitely wasn't cheesy enough for my taste the first time round!

I agree with the comments made. This quantities given for this recipe need to be doubled. I thought my choice of baking dish was reasonable for four persons, but I was disappointed the filling quantity was not enough and the success of the dish was compromised as a result.

Well, either I got it all wrong or it's just not to my taste but it wasn't great. Certainly edible, certainly easy, but not that amazing. I won't be trying again, it was disapointing.

Haven't tried this yet but I have a similar yummy recipe - it involves layering the lasagne sheets with wilted spinach, sauteed mushroom/onion/red pepper. and cubes of butternut squash roasted with some chilli flakes. Also, if you make the sauce with 1/2 white sauce and 1/2 garlic and herb soft cheese, it is very, very tasty. I use skimmed milk and light soft cheese so the fat content is negligible.
