    • In a bowl, mix ricotta cheese with the egg until well combined. Stir in the wild garlic pesto.
    • Blanch the spinach by pouring boiling water over it, then draining and squeezing out excess water.

    • Repeat the layering process until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of lasagne sheets. Top with grated parmesan.
  3. Bake:
    • Cover the lasagne with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbly.
