  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the onion and courgettes for 5-10 mins, until just golden. Stir in the mince and cook for 5 mins.
  2. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute more, then pour in the stock and milk. Bring to a simmer then bubble for 5 mins before stirring in the spinach until wilted. Add the lemon zest and parsley, then season.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix the ricotta with the grated cheese until combined.
  4. To assemble the lasagne, place two sheets of the pasta in the bottom of a 1.5ltr baking dish then pour over half the mince mix. Follow with 2 more of the pasta sheets and the remaining turkey mix. Top with the two remaining pasta sheets, then spread over the ricotta mixture.
  5. Cook in the oven for 35-40 mins until the topping is golden and bubbling. Serve immediately.
