Lasagne

My grandma makes the greatest lasagne in the entire world. This is a fact. So in tribute to her I attempted to make a lasagna half as good as hers. While it didn’t turn out too bad, I still don’t have anything on her’s!!

Ingredients –

  • 1lb minced beef
  • 2 diced onions
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 2 cans of chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1 generous dollop of tomato purée
  • 500g box of lasagne sheets
  • 200g diced mozzarella
  • 50g of butter
  • 2 cups of milk
  • About 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 150g of grated cheddar cheese, though feel free to add more

Steps –

  1. Fry the onions and garlic in some oil
  2. Add the beef and brown it
  3. Throw in both cans of tomatoes and purée
  4. Leave that to simmer for about 20 minutes meanwhile we make the white sauce
  5. First melt the butter in a pan then add the flour slowly till it absorbs all the liquid
  6. Then add the milk slowly while stirring all the time to stop the mixture sticking
  7. When all the lumps have disappeared add the grated cheese and stir till all the lumps have gone.
  8. Now get the pan/tray/dish thing in which you will assemble the lasagne, you might have to grease it. My grandma told me not to on the pan I used and I’m not sure why.
  9. First put in a layer of the meat sauce, then the white sauce then cover with the pasta sheets. Repeat this until the thing is full.
  10. Sprinkle mozzarella on top.
  11. Put in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for about thirty minutes, though you will have to watch it to make sure the cheese doesn’t burn.
