Ingredients :

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb. hot Italian sausage, casings removed
1 medium onion, finely chopped
6 garlic cloves (2 finely chopped, 4 whole)
1 1-lb. bag frozen spinach
1 lemon
3 cups whole milk
1 tsp. Diamond Crystal or ½ tsp. Morton kosher salt
½ tsp. freshly ground pepper
8 oz. low-moisture mozzarella, coarsely grated (about 2 cups)
8 oz. Parmesan, finely grated (about 4 cups)
1 cup heavy cream
1 lb. fresh lasagna sheets

Step By Step Preparation of spanish lasagna :

1 :

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Heat 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the hot Italian sausage, onion, and 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic, breaking up the sausage into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until the onion is softened, and the sausage is cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). Remove from heat and let it cool slightly. Break up any remaining large pieces of sausage with a fork or potato masher.

2 :

In a blender, place the frozen spinach. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from the lemon in wide strips and add the zest to a medium saucepan. Add the whole milk, salt, pepper, and the remaining 4 whole garlic cloves to the saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the milk is steaming (about 5 minutes). Immediately pour this mixture over the spinach in the blender. Blend starting on low speed and gradually increasing to high until the mixture is smooth and bright green.


In a large bowl, toss together the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Set aside 1½ cups of this cheese mixture for topping. Add the remaining cheese mixture to the spinach sauce in the blender. Pour in the heavy cream and blend just until combined.


Pour one-third of the spinach sauce (about 2¼ cups) onto an 18×13″ rimmed baking sheet and spread it to the edges of the pan with a large spoon. If the fresh lasagna sheets are in large strips, cut them in half or thirds. Arrange half of the sheets in a single layer to cover the sauce, trimming to fit as needed. Spoon the sausage mixture evenly over the pasta, then top with half of the remaining sauce. Arrange the remaining lasagna sheets in a single layer across the surface. Pour the remaining sauce over them and spread it evenly to cover the pasta. Scatter the reserved cheese mixture on top.


Bake the lasagna until the top is golden brown in spots, the filling is set around the edges, and a skewer or toothpick slides easily through the center (about 25–35 minutes). Let it sit for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
