Easy Peasy Lasagne

I love eating lasagne but I'm not keen on making it! Yesterday we had lasagne for tea but I took an easier route so I could get on with other things. 


I browned some mince and a chopped onion...I added a handful of chopped mushrooms, a few dashes of Worcester sauce and let it cook for 5mins...I then sprinkled in a low salt beef oxo cube and a little boiling water...next I added a tbsp of tomato purée and a carton of passata... I left this to simmer while I prepared the cheese sauce...  



I made a roux by melting butter, adding flour and slowly adding milk while stirring to get the right consistency (I used a carton of cream with milk because I didn't have much milk)...I took it off the heat and added a good handful of grated cheese...time to assemble...I used fresh pasta sheets...I layered mince mix---lasagne sheet---mince mix---lasagne sheet---cheese sauce---grated cheese---sprinkle of parsley. I baked them at 150oC for 1 hr to slow cook the mince.

This is Daisy's lactose free one before going in the oven...


She assembled most of this herself!

This is one of ours...


I meant to take a photo of them out of the oven but forgot!


It was good!

  1. What I want to know is who licked the dish out, I would have had a spoon in there scraping away, the bits left behind are the best.

  2. Hi Mandy, I just discovered a really quick way to make the cheese sauce which I got from Frugal Queen. Put all the ingredients in a large plastic or suitable jug and microwave. Stop every 4 mins or so and stir. All comes out just perfect. X
