Ingredients

  • 800g pumpkin, peeled and cut into 2cm chunks
  • 3 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2½ tbsp Co-op olive oil
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 125g bag Co-op baby spinach
  • 2 x 250g tubs Co-op ricotta
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp dried sage
  • 60g Co-op parmesan wedge, finely grated
  • 9 Co-op Irresistible Italian egg lasagne sheets
  • 125g ball Co-op lighter mozzarella, torn
  • 2 tbsp Co-op pine nuts
  • 180g pack Co-op Tenderstem® broccoli

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Toss the pumpkin with the garlic, 1 tbsp of the olive oil and season. Roast on a tray for 35-40 mins, until golden and tender
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp more oil in a saucepan and fry the onion for 20 mins over a medium heat, stirring. Add the spinach and cook for 2-3 mins until wilted
  3. Mix the roasted pumpkin into the saucepan, lightly crushing it with the back of a wooden spoon until evenly combined
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the ricotta, lemon zest, sage and 40g of the parmesan, then season
  5. Layer up the lasagne in a medium-sized ovenproof dish, starting with the pumpkin mixture, then a layer of pasta, the zesty ricotta after that, followed by more pasta. Repeat, finishing with ricotta, then top with the mozzarella and the rest of the parmesan
  6. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and bake for 35-40 mins, until golden and bubbling, sprinkling the pine nuts over the top for the final 5 mins of cooking time
  7. Leave the lasagne to stand for 10 mins while you steam or microwave the broccoli until tender. Drizzle the lemon juice over the broccoli, then serve alongside the lasagne
