Home made lasagne

Ingredients:



  • 80g Flour
  • 80g Butter
  • ltr Milk
  • 150g Cheese (Mozzarella/Gruyere/Emmenthal)
  • 1 tbsp Grapeseed Oil or Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 White Onion
  • Pinch of Dried Thyme
  • Pinch of Dried Basil
  • Pinch of Dried Oregano
  • 1.5kg Lean Minced Beef
  • 800g Tinned Plum Tomatoes
  • 18 Lasagna Sheets
  • 800g Spinach

    Method

    1.To start making the sauce, melt the butter in a medium sized pot on a low flame. When the butter has melted add the flour and, using a wooden spoon, combine and continue cooking for a further 2 minutes taking care not to stop stirring;
    2.Heat up your milk in a small pan and when it comes to the boil add it to the roux you made in the first pan. It is very important at this stage to switch to a whisk and continue whisking thoroughly for a further 2/3 minutes until the sauce is velvety smooth;
    3.When the sauce is completed cover with a layer of cling film and set aside;
    4.Place a large frying pan on a medium heat and add some grapeseed oil. When it reaches the right temperature add your onions and garlic and cook for 2 minutes until they start to become aromatic and translucent;
    5.Add your dried herbs (basil, oregano and thyme) to the onions and garlic;
    6.Add the beef to the frying pan and using a spatula or wooden spoon move the beef around and break up any lumps until it is golden brown;
    7.When the meat is golden brown season it with salt and pepper and add your tins of whole plum tomatoes, again using the spatula to break them up slightly;
    8.Turn the temperature down and cook for 20/25 minutes on a low heat;
    9.Start making layers, in your oven proof lasagna dish, using alternative layers of lasagna sheets, the white sauce and meat sauce;
    10.If you’re using the optional spinach add a couple of layers as well close to the centre of the lasagna;
    11.Make sure the top layer of the lasagna is the white sauce and place your grated cheese on the top layer ready to be finished in the oven;
    12.Cook your lasagna for 45/50 minutes at 180C/360F;
    13.Serve hot. Lasagne is great with chips and/or salad.
