How to make Spinach Basil Cottage Cheese Lasagna Recipe
Heat olive oil in a wok; add the garlic, and stir-fry for a few seconds. Next add the spinach, basil and salt. Stir-fry the spinach and basil until they get cooked completely and are soft and tender. This takes about 4 to 5 minutes on medium-high heat.
The next step is to assemble the Lasagna. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Whisk the tomato basil sauce and the cream together until well combined. We will spread the sauce and spinach over three layers, so it's good idea to divide them into three portions.
Spread a portion of sauce at the bottom of the pan; Then scatter a portion of the spinach and cottage cheese and parmesan over the sauce layer. Place a layer of lasagne sheets over the spinach layer until all the portions are covered.
Repeat the similar process for another two times. Finally, sprinkle the mozzarella cheese and torn basil leaves evenly over the top covering the entire Lasagna.
Tightly wrap with aluminium foil and place in the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow the Spinach Cottage Cheese Lasagna to sit for at least five minutes before serving.
