    Put the spinach in a large colander and pour over a kettle of just-boiled water. Leave to drain and cool.

    To assemble, put a thin layer of sauce in a 20cm x 30cm baking dish. Top with lasagne sheets, 1/3 of the remaining sauce, 1/3 ham and 1/3 mozzarella. Repeat with another layer of pasta, 1/3 of sauce, ham and mozzarella. Add another layer of pasta, sauce, ham and mozzarella then finish with a layer of pasta.
