  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Heat a large frying pan or wok over a medium heat and add a generous drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and fry for 3-4 mins until slightly softened, then turn up the heat and add the chestnut mushrooms. Fry, stirring once or twice, for 4-5 mins until browned, then tip everything on to a plate. 
  2. Add a little more oil to the pan, then fry the flat mushrooms and chestnuts for another 3-4 mins, until browned all over. Stir through the garlic, cook for 2 mins, then add the browned chestnut mushrooms and onions, passata, sugar and rosemary. Half-fill the passata bottle with water and pour that in too, then bring everything to a simmer and cook for 20 mins, until rich and thickened. 
  3. Stir in the spinach in batches, then season well. Stir together the ricotta and nutmeg in a bowl and season. 
  4. Spread a third of the mushroom mixture over the bottom of a 2-litre gratin dish. Top with a layer of lasagne sheets, cutting to fit if necessary. Spoon over teaspoons of the ricotta mixture (you only need to spread it out over the top layer). Repeat until everything is used up (you should get three layers), then crumble over the blue cheese, making sure the top layer of lasagne is completely covered by ricotta and blue cheese. 
  5. Bake for 30-40 mins until deep golden and the sauce is bubbling. Leave to stand for 10 mins, then serve with a green salad.
