This recipe was cooked for us by some dear friends from Rhodes, when they visited us right before COVID kicked off and changed our lives! As a chef and his partner, they fed us a selection of tasty treats during their stay - but this was our ultimate favourite, and one I just had to ask them for the recipe for. They are very generous, and shared the recipe with us in a heartbeat. My thanks to them, always!
Lasagna (or Lasagne is correct, I think, in the UK and Europe) is heart-warming comfort food at the best of times. But this veggie-based spinach lasagna recipe, using the iron-packed and healthy spinach in place of mince, and the addition of that mouth-watering lime, makes this dish a whole different ball game! You still have that ultimate comfort dish - but with a twist. You know you’ve knocked it out of the park when the whole table goes quiet after that first mouthful, silently savouring the wonderful flavour explosion happening in their mouths! A healthy spinach lasagna is great to have in your repertoire as a veggie - but this lime-infused one is all the more special. We didn’t even have the fooodlove site back when they made this recipe for us - but it’s the best spinach lasagne recipe I’ve ever tried, and one I simply HAD to share with you guys onsite! I hope you adore it as much as we do.
To help tenderize your lasagna as it bakes, pour any remaining spinach-filling juices into the baking tray. The additional moisture will ensure you get a soft and delicious meal!

Slice the leeks, onion, and garlic and place them in a large nonstick pan. Sauté for roughly 6 minutes to savor their tantalizing flavor.
Subsequently, toss the spinach into the pan and sauté for an additional 3-4 minutes until its texture becomes limp.
Cut the tomatoes into thin slices, then place them artfully atop the spinach mixture for a visually appealing layer.
Infuse your dish with a burst of citrusy flavor by grating one and a half limes and sprinkling their zest generously over it!
To complete your lasagne, repeat steps 5 through 11 to assemble one more layer of spinach and all the remaining ingredients.
Once everything is covered, finish the dish off with a generous layer of freshly grated cheddar cheese.
Watch it step-by-step!
Spinach lasagna with lime might sound a little unusual - and it is! Our dear friends made it for us when they visited from Rhodes, just before COVID became a thing - and it silenced everyone around the table, as we all took a moment to appreciate the AMAZING flavour explosion going on in our mouths!
