There was a lot of stages to this recipe but don't be put off, it is an easy dish to put together. I made a few substitutes as i didn't have some things to hand. I used asparagus and spring onions cut on the diagonal instead of the leeks and I have never heard of clam juice (I'm in the Uk) so I used fish stock instead, such a simple dish bursting with flavours. I took the leftovers to work for lunch and it microwaved really well too! I will definatly be making this again. Thank you Ev

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet.
  3. Stir in the leek and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until softened, about 6 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a large bowl and add the garlic and parsley.
  6. Wipe out the skillet.
  7. Add the spinach and toss over medium-high heat until wilted, about 2 minutes.
  8. Stir the spinach into the mushrooms and season with coarse salt.
  9. In a small bowl, combine the clam juice, cream, tarragon and 1 tsp coarse salt.
  10. In a large bowl, rinse the potato slices in cold running water until the water runs clear.
  11. Drain the potato slices and pat dry.
  12. In a 9 X 13 inch non-reactive baking dish, arrange 1/3 of the potatoes, overlapping the slices.
  13. Spread ½ the spinach-mushroom mixture over the potatoes and sprinkle with half of the smoked salmon.
  14. Repeat the process with another ½ the remaining potato slices and all the other ½ of the spinach-mushroom mixture.
  15. Cover with the last potato layer and pour the cream mixture evenly over the top.
  16. Cover the lasagne with foil and bake for 1 hour.
  17. Uncover and bake for about 30 minutes longer, or until the potatoes are tender and golden.
