Simple Spinach & Mushroom Lasagne

Quick Spinach And Mushroom Lasagne (14)

Lately life feels like a bit of a whirlwind.  The weeks are flying by and it feels like I’m achieving very little – after a long (often very long) week at work it’s a struggle to find time and energy for a big cooking session at the weekend, as much as I enjoy it.  My ideal lasagne (this one), takes a bit of prep time, whereas this quick and easy version gets the job done and gives me more precious time for leisure activities.  Such as sleeping.  Thank goodness it’s a three day weekend here!  Happy mid-autumn festival tomorrow, and indeed, happy extra day in bed!
