- 1. Pre-heat the oven to 225C.
- 2. Heat the olive oil in a hot pan. Grate the onion and carrot and crush the garlic before frying together. Season with the bay leaf, a pinch of oregano, Worcestershire sauce and a little salt and pepper. Allow the onion to soften before making a well in the centre of the pan. Place the mince in the middle of the pan and stir to break it up. Add the tomato puree and allow to cook out for 30 seconds. Continue until all the meat has browned nicely. Add the wine and cook off the alcohol before adding the tomatoes. Leave to simmer for a further 2-3 minutes. Finally add the milk, turn off the heat and set aside.
- 3. To make the cheese sauce, first melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and using a wooden spoon, stir to form a paste. Over a gentle heat add a third of the milk, whisking to prevent any lumps forming. Add the rest of the milk a third at a time, whisking as you go. Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of ground nutmeg. Allow the sauce to cook out for another minute before adding the Cheddar cheese. Stir and remove from the heat.
- 4. Spoon half of the meat sauce into the bottom of the baking dish and place pasta sheets on top (break the sheets if necessary to avoid any overlapping). Next, pour in just under half of the cheese sauce, and spread evenly using a spatula before spooning the remaining meat on top. Add the final layer of pasta and use the spatula to pour over the remaining cheese sauce.
- 5. Finish with the grated Parmesan and sprinkle with another pinch of oregano Add a light seasoning of salt and pepper before cleaning the edges of the dish and placing in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

- MEAT FILLING
- 500g Minced Beef
- 100g Diced Pancetta
- 1 Onion chopped
- 5 Cup mushrooms chopped
- 1 400g tin Chopped Tomatos
- 1 tablespoon Tomtato Puree
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- 1 dash of Worcester sauce
- WHITE SAUCE
- 1 Pint Semi Skimmed Milk
- 1 oz Butter or Marrg
- 1 heaped tablespoon plain flour sifted
- salt and pepper
- Parmisan cheese
- Sheets Dried Lasagne
- Dried Lasagne sheets
- Firstly fry off the pacentta then add the onions and fry until soft. Add the mince and fry together until the mince is brown. Add the garlic, worcester sauce and freshly ground black pepper. Fry for a couple of minutes then add the chopped mushrooms and the tin of chopped tomatoes. Stir well and add the tomato puree. Bring to the boil then turn off the heat and put aside until required. If the mxture seems a little runny at this point, I would usually thicken with beef gravy graules but only if it needs it.
- Make the white sauce by adding the milk and butter/marg to the pan, start to heat on high and add the sifted flour, whisk gently until the mixture starts to boil and thicken. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. You do not want the sauce too thick it should coat the back of a spoon quite thickly.
- This dish can then be assembled as follows and put aside to cook later.
- Use a good size oven proof dish. Place a layer of the meat mixture at the bottom of the dish and cover with sheets of lasagne, these can be broken to ensure that all of the meat is covered. Place another layer of meat on top and drizzle over some of the white sauce, then cover with sheets of lasagne. Continue this until all of the meat mixture has been used (probably 3/4 layers depending on how thick you have put the meat on), and on the top of the lasagne use the remainder of the white sauce and top with grated parmesan cheese.
- This can then be baked in a preheated oven Gas 5 for 40 mins until golden on top. Serve with Garlic Bread and a nice Green Salad.
