How to make Chicken and Pesto Lasagna


1. Dry fry the minced chicken or turkey and onion for about 5 minutes until browned and the onion is beginning to soften. Add the garlic, tomatoes, tomato purée and then the red pepper and oregano. Cook for 2-3 minutes then pour over 150ml water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
2. Meanwhile soak the lasagne sheets in boiling water or as directed on the packet.
3. Place the spinach in a colander over the sink and pour over boiling water until the spinach has wilted. Press gently to remove as much water as possible then place the spinach in a bowl with the ricotta and Pesto. Mix well.
4. Set oven to 180°c/160 fan/gas marks 4.
5. Place 2 sheets of lasagne in the base of a 2.5 lt oven proof baking dish and pour over half the chicken mixture. Top with half the ricotta mixture. Add another 2 sheets of lasagne and most of the remaining chicken mixture, reserving a couple of tablespoons for the top.
6. Add the remaining ricotta mixture and top with the last 2 lasagne sheets. Spoon over the reserved chicken mixture then spread with crème fraiche and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until piping hot in the centre and golden brown.
