Lasagne are wide, flat-shaped pasta, and possibly one of the oldest types of pasta. “Lasagne”, or the singular “lasagna”, commonly refers to a dish made with several layers of lasagne sheets alternated with sauces and other ingredients
Ingredients for Spaghetti Bolognese is:
I kg minced beef or pork
1 large onion chopped
250 gm mushrooms sliced
3/4 cloves garlic
5/6 Fresh basil.
2 bay leaves
I large tin tomatoes
1 small tin
2 tbsp tomato puree.
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp sage.
Salt and pepper to taste
To make spaghetti sauce:
Heat a glug olive oil in pan and saute onions and garlic.
Add mince and cook until browned
Add tomatoes and cook for a few minutes then add tomato puree and mixed herbs, bay leaf, oregano, balsamic and Worcestershire sauce .
Cook on a slow simmer for 20 minutes and then add mushrooms, cook for another 10 minutes and stir in fresh basil.
Meanwhile make a white sauce.
When spaghetti is ready starting with a layer of mince then pasta sheets,
Then mince, white sauce, pasta until you have completed 4 layers finishing with the white sauce.
Grate over your favorite cheese, I use cheddar or a mix of mozzarella and cheddar.
Cheese can be difficult to get here so if I have plenty then I also use some between my layers for a cheesier lasagna.
I think lasagna is the type of dish where anything goes really sometimes I add bell pepper to my sauce it depends what I have in my larder.
Cook lasagna on 180C for 30 minutes or until pasta is cooked and cheese is golden and bubbling.
Serve with mixed Salad and or Garlic bread.
