Introduction

A favourite family classic.

Method

MEAT SAUCE

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150°C, Gas 2
  2. Brown meat with care on a moderately high heat, allowing caramelised flavours to develop and set aside
  3. Add olive oil to an oven proof pan on a moderate heat and sauté onion until it begins to soften
  4. Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes ensuring it does not brown
  5. Add browned minced beef to pan with onions and garlic along with chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, dried oregano, stock, wine, sugar and a little seasoning
  6. Bring to the boil stirring frequently, and turn off heat
  7. Fix lid tightly to pan and bake in oven for 2 ½ to 3 hours until a thick sauce forms
  8. Remove from oven, season if required and blend through fresh basil

BECHAMEL SAUCE

  1. Whilst meat sauce is in oven, prepare white sauce
  2. Add butter, flour and milk, to pan on a moderate heat
  3. Stir continuously on a moderate heat and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until sauce has thickened
  4. Turn off heat, add cream (optional) ground nutmeg, season and set aside ready for use

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

  1. Pre- heat oven to 180°C, Gas 4
  2. Spoon a layer of meat sauce onto base of dish, then béchamel sauce, then lasagne
  3. Repeat this process covering the lasagne with a final layer of béchamel sauce
  4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake in oven for 30 -35 minutes until gold and bubbling on top

Gaynor's Tip: This dish can be made well in advance and is a real family favourite. Perfect with crusty bread and a crisp green salad. An oven-able rectangular lasagne dish approximately 30cm x 22cm would be ideal.
