Quatro Formaggi Lasagna

Happy Christmas Eve Day!

I Came up with a 4 cheese lasagna recipe and nailed it! Preparation is about 20 minutes and cooking up to an hour.
You will need:
300g lasagna noodles
200g spinach (frozen, canned)
200 ml cooking cream
150g smoked cheese
150g blue cheese
150g fresh mozzarella (shredded)
200g shredded cheddar (mild fits better but any kind will do really)
2 eggs (beaten in a separate bowl)
Dried oregano and basil
4-5 finely chopped garlic cloves(could be less I always put a LOT an you can use garlic powder)
2 med size onions (yellow) and 150g of fresh mushrooms (both sliced thin)
2t.s virgin oil (any oil)

How to make it:

Check your noodles bc some brands want you to precook them a bit!
Sauté lightly the mushrooms and onions (5minutes on medium heat, remember you don’t need them fully cooked).
Meanwhile in a sauce pan put the cooking cream, blue, smoked cheese on low-led heat. Stir often until it becomes thick and creamy and all the cheese is melted, about 10 min. Then add the spinach and cook for another 5 min occasionally stirring.
Mix the cheddar with garlic and the eggs then set a side.
Put a thin layer of the sauce and then lasagna noodles.
The way I did the layers: lasagna noodles- cheese/spinach sauce- onions and mushrooms, sprinkle mozzarella, some oregano an basil, top with cheddar and egg mixture (not too thick). Continue until you run out of mixtures. Cover fully with aluminum foil and bake on 200C for 45 min to an hour. Sprinkle with Parmesan and enjoy!
It should be enough for 4 people.

A few tips:

When you put ingredients in layers- try to place them close to the center of each noodle. When you put a new layer, press gently with your hand so it spreads evenly on the bottom layer. That way it won’t leak everywhere when it starts cooking.
The top layer should be only cheddar and egg(no mess when you cut it)
Veggies are optional ( I tried it just with cheese and it’s awesome too)!
Also- if the spinach cheese sauce gets too think- add a table spoon of milk or 2 or 3 🙂
