Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

For the bechamel sauce

  • 30 g butter (about 2 tbsp)
  • 2 tablespoon plain flour
  • 2 cups full-fat milk
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon ground black pepper

For the filling

  • 1 cup leftover chicken, cut into cubes
  • ½ cup frozen spinach, thawed
  • ½ cup canned artichokes, chopped

To assemble

  • 12 sheets lasagna
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan set over a medium heat, add the flour, and whisk well.
  • Pour over the milk, and continue to whisk until the sauce thickens.
  • Add the grated cheese, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, and mix well, then remove from the heat.
  • Divide the sauce, so that 3 quarters of it can go towards the filling, and the rest for assembling the lasagna.
  • Add the chicken, artichokes and spinach, making sure you squeeze the spinach well, so it's not watery.
  • Brush the dish with a thin layer of white sauce, arrange one layer of lasagna sheets (see photo no 2), then spread half of the filling over.
  • Arrange another layer of lasagna sheets, again filling, and top with other sheets.
  • Spread the remaining white sauce all over the top lasagna sheets, and cover with grated cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahreneheit) for about 20 minutes, or until the top is golden and the lasagna is bubbling hot.
