Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220ºC, fan 200ºC.

Squeeze out as much excess water from the spinach as possible, put it in to a medium bowl with 175g of the ricotta, the beef, nutmeg and seasoning, stir well to combine everything together.

If using large lasagne sheets, cut them in half.

Place one-sixth of the beef mixture at the short end of each lasagne sheet and using the back of a spoon, spread it out to cover one quarter of the sheet.

Roll the pasta up to encase the filling and place in a shallow ovenproof dish.

Pour the passata over and dot the reserved ricotta on top.

Scatter with the Parmesan, then bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and bubbling.
