From the Farmhouse Kitchen…. Lasagna

This is one of the family’s most favourite meals ever. It is tasty and is great for when a group come over for dinner.


  • 1 kg beef mince
  • garlic
  • mixed herbs ( basil is delicious if you have it)
  • ground black pepper
  • salt
  • 1 and a half jars of traditional bolognese pasta sauce.
  • 2 carrots grated
  • 1-2 Tbsp sugar
  • lasagna sheets
  • Milk – about a litre
  • Cheese grated
  • flour
  • Margarine – about 2 Tbsp

Brown your mince – add garlic, pasta sauce and herbs. Add grated carrot and simmer till brown and carrot is soft. I add sugar to my meat mix as I like it with a rich tomato flavour that is a little sweet. You can adjust your flavour as you like it.

Make cheese sauce. Melt margarine in pot. Add flour and mix. Slowly add mix making sure there at=re no lumps. Bring milk to boil stirring continuously until sauce thickens. Add grated cheese and mustard, salt and pepper.

Place lasagna sheets in bottom of pan. Top with a layer of meat mixture. Place another layer of lasagna and pour over layer of cheese sauce. Then layer meat, lasagna, cheese, meat, lasagna, cheese. Finally grate some cheese on top and bake in oven at 180 degrees for about 30 – 40 minutes. Enjoy with a salad and garlic bread and a glass of wine.

NOTE TO SELF: Don’t make it again in a round dish/tray (Lasagna sheets should be made in circles too!!)

    Your Lasagne sounds delicious and looks even better! We also enjoy it and I usually make one to eat and one to freeze – that is one advantage of being just the two of us – I am sure that you do not ever have the opportunity to freeze any leftovers! I have sent you an e-mail with a nice recipe for Muffins for Zoe to try.
