Spinach, cheddar & tomato pancake lasagnePosted on: 01 February 2010 by Mark O'haire
This pancake stack is layered with tomato sauce for lasagne, sliced tomatoes, freshly cooked spinach and grated cheddar cheese.
It’s rather like a vegetarian lasagne - and it tastes fantastic. What’s more, the milk and cheese provide valuable calcium and protein, and you’ll get two portions of vegetables to go towards your 5-a-day!
Spinach, cheddar & tomato pancake lasagne
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 35 minutesIngredients:
- 175g plain flour
- 2 small eggs
- 450ml (3/4 pint) milk
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 350g fresh spinach
- 500g jar tomato sauce for lasagne
- 5 tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 175g mature cheddar cheese, grated
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C / fan oven 160°C / Gas 4. Tip the flour into a large bowl, add the eggs and milk and beat together using a hand whisk to make a smooth batter. Allow to stand for a few minutes.
- Heat a heavy-based pancake pan, adding a few drops of vegetable oil. Pour in some batter, tilting the pan around to make a thin pancake. Cook over a medium heat, and when it has set on the surface, flip over to cook the other side. Cool on sheets of kitchen paper. Make 5 or 6 pancakes until all the batter is used up.
- Pack the spinach into a large saucepan and add a little water. Cover and cook for about 3-4 minutes until the spinach has wilted. Drain well, squeezing out any surplus moisture.
- Stack the pancakes on a lightly greased baking sheet, spreading each layer with tomato sauce for lasagne, then topping with spinach, sliced tomatoes and cheese. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool for a few minutes, then slice into 4 wedges.
Leftover ideas and tips:
Use bought pancakes instead of home made ones for speed and convenience. If you like, make the pancake lasagne in a baking dish. Keep any leftovers covered and refrigerated, then re-heat in the microwave for about 1 minute on high until piping hot, or serve cold in a packed lunch.
