Lasagna and Salad

To make spaghetti sauce:

  1. Heat a glug olive oil in a pan and saute onions and garlic.
  2. Add mince and cook until browned
  3. Add tomatoes and cook for a few minutes then add tomato puree and mixed herbs, bay leaf, oregano, balsamic, and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Cook on a slow simmer for 20 minutes and then add mushrooms, cook for another 10 minutes and stir in fresh basil.
  5. Meanwhile, make a white sauce.
  6. When spaghetti is ready starting with a layer of mince then pasta sheets.
  7. 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.
  8. Cheese can be difficult to get here so if I have plenty then I also use some between my layers for a cheesier lasagna.
  9. 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.
  10. Cook lasagna on 180C for 30 minutes or until pasta is cooked and cheese is golden and bubbling.
  11. Serve with mixed Salad and or Garlic bread.
  12. Enjoy !
