Sunday Samples Lasange

This lasange is a fail safe method and always able to satisfy any hunger pangs that anyone should have. It's great if you're cooking for a family or any number of people and is delicious, I promise. You will need
A pound of minced meat
An ounce of butter
Some plain flour
Mature Cheddar Cheese
An Onion and 1 large or two small cloves of garlic
A tin of chopped tomatoes and a tablespoon of tomato puree
You can also add some bell peppers and mushrooms if you want

The spices you will need

Heat your olive oil and add onions. Allow to simmer on
low heat for 5 minutes, until translucent

I was asked by a friend the other day about how to make sure that the pasta sheets are cooked through and don't have that crunch. This is my trick for ensuring a soft and fully cooked lasange

Soften your pasta sheets in a dish of boiling water

Melt your butter on a low heat so it doesn't burn

Once butter is melted add flour a little at a time
to soak up the butter

Once ready for milk it resembles a dough

Add your milk and stir until all lumps of flour are gone,
then allow to simmer on low heat and for the flour to cook

Add your mince and garlic to the onions and
add your flavourings

Once the mince is cooked through add the table spoon
of Tomato Puree

Ensure it is all mixed in fully

Add your tin of chopped tomatoes and allow to simmer on a low heat
For me there's nothing much worse than a dry lasange so I always ensure that there is sufficient cheese sauce. If your are worried about how bad this recipe can be use low fat or not fat milk like I do and you can also use a low fat cheese.

Check your sauce, It should now look like this above once mixed. Add milk
and stir until at your desired thickness

Add a handful of grated cheese and stir in until melted

Add salt and pepper to your taste

Take your mince and place a layer on the bottom of your dish then
add a layer of the pasta sheets

Add a layer of the cheese sauce and repeat the 3 layers again
Add a sprinkling of cheese and cover with tinfoil.
Place in the oven for 20 minutes

I like to let the top brown a little so I will always put it in the oven without the tinfoil for another 8-10 minutes.

Your final product ready to be devoured
