It was a really rather simple but effective way to use up the lasagne sheets.

After I’d made my alternative lasagne last week I froze the rest of the pasta sheets, I decided to use them up last night before they began to deteriorate and get freezer burn, I didn’t want to make another lasagne, so after a little think and a rummage through the fridge, I came up with a sort of ‘Giant ravioli’ idea..

Giant ravioli.

I had a slice of chicken left over from a pack of sandwich meat and I took the baby spinach leaves out of a bag of mixed salad.

I cut up the peppers,tomatoes and some onion and put it in the oven to soften up, then I blanched the lasagne sheets.

I heaped a little diced chicken, mozzarella and spinach on to a sheet of lasange, seasoned it and added a slice of cherry tomato.

I had also made some cupcakes to take up to the hospital the next day, it was Mr 5’s birthday and as he is unable to eat I thought the amazing nurses on his ward would appreciate them, unfortunately he was unable to enjoy his birthday and the visit from the dog I’d planned as he took a turn for the worse in the night and is now in HDU with a pulmonary edema, suffice to say he is responding well to treatment and should be back on track soon..
