PREPARATION TIME: 1 hour
COOKING TIME: 1 hour
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut zucchinis lengthwise into thin slices.
Place the slices in a Le Creuset 37/32cm Heritage Rectangular Dish and cover with boiling water. Allow to stand for 20 minutes. Dry on a kitchen towel.
Place the spinach in large bowl and cover with boiling water, leaving to stand until wilted. Drain in a colander and squeeze the excess water out of the leaves. Chop the spinach finely. Heat olive oil in a pan and add onion and garlic. Fry until soft, but not brown. Add the spinach and fry for 1 minute. Place the ricotta in large mixing bowl and add the spinach mixture. Add the egg and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
Place a single layer of sliced zucchini in the oven dish. Spoon half of the filling over the zucchini layer. Add another layer of zucchini. Spoon the rest of the filling on top.
Sprinkle cheese over and arrange the tomatoes on top. Drizzle with a little olive oil and place into the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour or until the zucchini is soft.
After arranging a sprinkle of fresh basil leaves on top, this gluten-free lasagne is ready to enjoy! Thanks to the heat-retaining properties of Le Creuset Stoneware, the Heritage Rectangular Dish can go straight from oven-to-table, for beautiful presentation of your meal.
