Combine both a classic lasagne dish with tasty bolognese for a filling cheat after a long day at work.
If you have a little extra time on your hands, make your own pasta sauce using canned tomatoes, vegetable stock, and fresh herbs for a delicious meal which works well with a shiraz red wine.
700g beef mince
11 lasagne sheets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion (chopped)
300g tomato cooking sauce
1 tin canned tomatoes (finely chopped)
1 cup water
300g grated cheese
Salt and pepper
4 cups milk
1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon salt
- Heat a pan with olive oil and cook the mince until brown. Add the cooking sauce and stir occasionally. Season with salt, pepper, and herbs.
- In another pan add the butter until it begins to bubble up. Remove, then add milk and put it back on the heat. Keep cooking until the sauce begins to boil, then remove again and leave to cool.
- Cover the base of one tray with meat sauce and one layer lasagne sheets, then evenly distribute the meat sauce mixture. Keep this going for 2 more layers, then pour the béchamel sauce, and top off with the grated cheese of your choice.
- Set your oven to 180ºC (350ºF) and cook for 30-40 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown.
