    Home grown lamb chops with roast Beetroot, sweet potato and carrot. Grilled zucchini and steamed beans, broccoli and asparagus.
    Chops and veg are always a winner in this household.

    One egg
    Teaspoon of lemon rind

    Cook the onion or French shallot in olive oil until soft, add chopped spinach to the pan and stir until the spinach shrinks down. Set aside to cool (I put straight into the fridge).

    Mix the cooled spinach with the cheeses, an egg, lemon rind, season with salt & pepper (I just used a little pepper and no salt as DD was having some).

    You can do small rolls but I used a whole sheet and did 2 big rolls with lots of filling. Sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

    I baked them for about 30min on 180C then turned the oven up to 220 for 10min as the pastry was taking ages to cook. Next time I'll probably put it on 200C the whole time and see how that goes. You might need to experiment with your oven.

    It was really nice! DD ate the pastry but refused to eat anything else. I think she was a bit tired and not very hungry, so I expect she'll eat it next time given that she generally loves things with spinach filling.
    Do you strain/drain the ricotta? Anything I make spinach and ricotta always comes out soggy

    Nope - but you do need to make sure the spinach is well drained especially if you use frozen spinach. I grow my own so after washing it I make sure it's really dry.

    Also make sure your oven is hot enough so it cooks properly and doesn't sort of stew and go soggy.

    Yum! Did you make the rice in a rice cooker? I've been wanting to try some flavoured rice.

    Not too exciting, I don't even feel remotely like cooking and there's not much in the freezer, so DD is having cheesy scrambled eggs and toast triangles. I figure there's some nutritional value in there...

    I just cooked it in the saucepan. Softened the onion and garlic first then added spices, rice & stock.
