Family Lasagne Serves 4

This dish has a wonderful rich flavour, and is great for all the family. It can be put together the day before, then covered and placed in the fridge until needed.


Preparation time: 15 minutes approx.

Ingredients

For the meat sauce:

  • 2 tins of Red Lion Minced Beef and Onion

For the white sauce:

  • 85g butter
  • 85g plain flour
  • 750ml milk
  • 250g pack Fresh Lasagne
  • 25g Parmesan cheese, grated

Cooking Time: 50 minutes approx.

Top Tip

Add mozzarella!
Take 125g ball of mozzarella, tear into thin strips, then scatter over the top before going into the oven.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.
  2. First make the white sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in plain flour, then cook for 2 mins. Slowly whisk in the milk, then bring to the boil, stirring. Turn down the heat and cook until the sauce starts to thicken and coats the back of a wooden spoon.
  3. To assemble the lasagne, lightly oil the bottom of a medium-sized ovenproof serving dish. Spoon over a third of the Red Lion Minced beef and onion sauce, then cover with lasagne sheets. Drizzle over about one quarter of the white sauce. Repeat until you have 3 layers of pasta. Cover the top with the remaining white sauce, making sure you can't see any pasta poking through. Then sprinkle over the grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbling and golden on top. Serve immediately with a salad or green vegetables.
