myvirginkitchen's picture
This is a nice little twist on a lasagne dish – using pesto & spinach. Mix spinach with cream in a bowl and a jar of pesto. Then add cooked beef and layer in a lasagne dish with sheets…bake for twenty minutes and that’s it done. Don’t believe me? Check out the video, it’s got a unique taste and is super quick.
