Double Gloucester and Tomato Tortilla Bake
Just five main ingredients make this delicious tortilla bake. It’s a bit like a vegetarian lasagne, made with very little effort! There are many British cheeses to choose from, so if Double Gloucester isn’t quite to your taste, swap this for Cheddar or Cheshire cheese.

A little vegetable oil, for greasing
300g (10oz) fresh spinach
5 soft flour tortillas
440g jar tomato pasta sauce
3 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
150g (6oz) Double Gloucester Cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Salad, to serve
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C / fan oven 160°C / Gas Mark 4. Lightly grease a baking sheet with a little vegetable oil.
2. Put the spinach into a colander and pour over a kettleful of boiling water to wilt the leaves. Drain well, then squeeze out the excess moisture when cool enough to handle.
3. Put 1 tortilla onto the baking sheet, and spread with one-quarter of the pasta sauce, then arrange a sliced tomato on top and sprinkle with one-third of the grated cheese. Place another tortilla on top, spread with another quarter of the pasta sauce, then add half the spinach, seasoning with a little pepper. Repeat these layers once more, then finish with the final tortilla, sliced tomato and grated cheese.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool for a few minutes, then slice into 4 and serve with salad.
Cook’s tip: Use home-made or bought pancakes instead of tortillas, if you like.
