Ham & Crab Sticks Lasagna - BeMyOwnChef Recipes

I have created this fusion style of Lasagna using Ham and Crab Sticks as fillings and Crispy Spinach for the toppings. This Lasagna dish really turned out great and yummy and my Family & Kids love it.

· 8 ounces lasagna noodles
· 1 tablespoons salt for cooking water
· 1 tablespoon olive or truffle oil
· 2 ounces low fat ricotta cheese
· 8 ounces sliced Mozzarella cheese
· 3 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
· 1 bunch of Spinach Leaves


· 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
· 2 cloves garlic, minced
· 2 tablespoons olive oil
· 300g of ground ham
· 10 pieces of crab sticks (slice to 4 pcs each)
· 3 large fresh tomatoes
· 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
· 2 teaspoons salt
· 1 teaspoon sugar
· 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
· 2 cups water

Start sauce about 30 to 40 minutes in advance.
Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until onions are soft; add ground ham and brown, then add crab sticks and the remaining ingredients; stir well. Simmer slowly, uncovered, for 30 minutes.

Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water with 1 tablespoons of salt for about 15 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Drain; add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Arrange noodles in a shallow 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Make 3 layers each of noodles, ricotta cheese, Mozzarella cheese, ham & crab sauce, and Parmesan cheese. Add 1 tablespoon of truffle oil and Bake at 325° for 40 minutes. Deep fry the spinach leaves in oil until crispy, remove and add to the top of the lasagna dish when ready. Serves 6
