This is a fantastic alternative to lasagna, packed with delicious nutrition and lots of cheese. In my books this spells out WINNER. You will need:
- one onion
- 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 a glass of wine
- 2 cups diced tomatoes
- fresh spinach
- edam or gruyere or any similar cheese
- 2 medium courgettes
- concentrated tomato paste (kunserva)
- (optional) bacon
Prepare a tomato sauce as follows:
Chop up an onion, some garlic, and brown them in a pan. Add a splash of wine whilst they’re cooking. You can add some bacon bits too if you like.
Add 2 cups of diced tomatoes, or if you wish, a can of chopped tomatoes will do.
Cover the tomatoes in stock, add 2 tablespoons of concentrated tomato paste, 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar (or sugar, if you prefer), and simmer.
In the meantime, prepare 2 courgettes, sliced, 2 cups of grated cheese (edam or gruyere will do), and wash some fresh spinach leaves.
In a small casserole, layer the ingredients. Start with tomato sauce, then courgettes.
Cover in a layer of grated cheese.
Finish with the spinach, and start the sequence again.
Finish off with a layer of cheese at the top.
Cover, and bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees. Remove the lid for the last 10 minutes.
Serve with some red wine. 🙂
