Mince, Spinach & Mushroom Lasagne
Mince Lasagne Recipe with Plenty of Vegetables
Lasagna is one of those dishes that seems like it is going to be tricky and time-consuming to make, but is actually surprisingly easy to prepare. This recipe makes a big batch, so it is a great dish to make to feed a crowd, but it is also a good option for meal prepping as it freezes well. It's also vege-packed with generous helpings of spinach and mushrooms.
