How To Make A Lasagne

Updated on September 9, 2011

Okay, so i'm not a brilliant a cook, and have never been experimental in the kitchen. I'm 19 years old and a few weeks ago I cooked my very first lasagne. I originally cooked it for my boyfriend, who said it was the best lasagne ever. So then my parents and brother tried it and they said it was really nice as well, so I'm going to share with you how I made my lasagne.

So first off here is a list of ingredients you will need:

  • 1 Onion
  • 250g of minced beef
  • 1tsp of minced garlic
  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Cheese sauce
  • Pasta sheets
  • Grated cheese

Okay let's start with how to actually make it.

  1. Firstly start by chopping an onion up however you like it to be, I chop it up into smaller bits just because I don't really like onions and they can easily be disguised.
  2. Heat some oil in a large frying pan
  3. Fry the onions that you have chopped up for about 3 - 4 minutes
  4. Put all of the mince into the frying pan with the fried onions and add a 1 tsp of minced garlic, fry the mince until brown.
  5. Dissolve 2 stock cubes into 200ml of water
  6. Add tinned tomatoes and stock water to the mince
  7. Simmer everything in the frying pan for about 20 minutes, make sure the sauce is quite thick.
  8. In an oven proof dish layer these ingredients:
  • Mince
  • Pasta sheets
  • Cheese sauce
  • Grated cheese of your choice
  • Mince
  • Pasta sheets
  • Cheese sauce

9. Bake in the for 25 minutes at 200 degrees (This is just a guideline, every oven will be different)
10. Sprinkle grated cheese on top
11. Bake for another 20 minutes
12. Now your lasagne should be ready to eat, and enjoy!

      I like to add mushrooms and fry with the onions. I also put wafer thin sliced ham with cheese slices in between the layers of lasagne sheets and bolognese sauce.

      I first came across this when holidaying in France.Keep sharing you recipes Stacey and play around with ingredients to add your own signature to it. Listen to me I sound like an advert for Masterchef. Above all have fun.
