‘Lasagne is our favourite Sunday meal. We cook it once every week, and usually on a Sunday. Though easy to make, it does have a long cooking time,’ shares Rosy, an educator who offers online poetry class.

The recipe that we are sharing with you will need twenty minutes of preparation time and one hour and twenty minutes of cooking time. The cooked lasagne will be enough to serve eight people. 

What do you need?

  • Two teaspoons of olive oil
  • Mixed salad leaves for garnishing
  • One finely chopped halved brown onion. 
  • Two crushed garlic cloves
  • Half a cup of dry red wine
  • Two 400 gram of cans Italian diced tomatoes
  • 750 gram of regular Coles beef mince
  • Four fresh lasagne sheets
  • Additional Olive oil for greasing
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt
  • One-fourth cup of tomato paste
  • Half cup of Devondale mozzarella cheese coarsely grated

Cheese sauce

  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • Sixty-grams of butter
  • Ground white pepper
  • Two bay leaves
  • Four whole cloves
  • Eight whole black peppercorns
  • Four cups of milk
  • One-third cup of plain flour
  • Salt
  • One cup of finely grated parmesan
  • Eight whole black peppercorns
  • Eight fresh parsley stalks
  • One finely chopped halved brown onion. 

How to make it?

  • First things first heat the oil in a large pan on a medium flame. To the hot oil, add garlic and onion, and let it cook for about five minutes. Next, to the mix, add mince and let it cook. 
  • Keep stirring the mixture with a spatula to avoid any lump formation. Continue this for five minutes or till the mince changes color. Next to the mix, add tomato paste, wine, and tomato, and bring the mixture to boil. 
  • Switch the flame to low, and continue uncovered, stirring for 30-minutes. 
  • Take the mixture off the heat, and taste it. 
  • Now, add pepper and salt according to taste. 
  • For making the cheese sauce, combine parsley stalks, onion, peppercorns, bay leaves, and milk in a medium pan on medium flame, and bring it to boil. After a boil, remove from the flame, and keep aside for fifteen minutes. 
  • Now, strain the milk via a fine sieve and transfer the sauce to a bowl. 
  • Now, take a large pan, and melt butter in it on a medium-high flame. Now, once foaming has started, add flour and let it cook for two minutes. Now, remove the pan from heat. 
  • Next, slowly pour in half of the milk. Use a balloon whisk, and continuously whisk it till you get a smooth mixture. Now, you can add the remaining milk and repeat. 
  • Now, place the pan on a medium-high flame, and bring it to a boil while stirring for about five minutes. Remove from the flame, and add parmesan, and keep stirring till cheese melts. Now, taste the mix, and add salt, white pepper, and nutmeg, as required. 
  • Preheat the oven at 180°C.
  • Take a rectangular ovenproof dish of three liters and grease it with oil. 
  • Now, spread one-fourth of the bechamel sauce on the prepared dish’s base, and take one lasagne sheet and arrange it onto the sauce. 
  • Layer it with the one-third mince mixture and one-third of the bechamel sauce. Go on layering with the reminder sheets and the mix. Sprinkle mozzarella on top, and put it on a baking tray. Now, take it for baking for 40-minutes. Remove from the over, and leave for 10-minutes. 
  • Cut the lasagne into eight pieces, and serve with mixed salad leaves.
