Classic Lasagna

Ok so I guess I have been having cravings :-), for Italian dishes and pasta. I have made lasagna twice in the last couple of weeks, its great you make a big dish and enjoy the leftovers with a good salad. Here is a recipe for a classic lasagna and its so good ;-) 


  • one pack of minced beef
  • one - two teaspoons of Italian herbs, also fresh chopped oregano and basil about 1/4 cup
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • one chopped onion
  • 5 chopped tomatoes
  • 5 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 a pack of pre cooked lasagna
  • about a tablespoon of butter
  • a tablespoon of corn flour or all purpose flour to make a roux 
  • 2 cups of milk
  • a sprinkle of desired grated cheese for top, I used a sharp cheddar
  • 10 chopped mushrooms (Jasmine loves them :-))

  1. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for 3 minutes
  2. add the beef and simmer for 10 minutes
  3. now add the herbs, mushrooms, tomatoes and salt and pepper
  4. simmer for 30-40 minutes
  5. meanwhile melt the butter mix in the flour to form a roux and then slowly stir in the milk stirring all the while as not to get lumpy
  6. then layer the meat sauce then lasagna, then becharmel cheese sauce until you fill the dish
  7. top with sliced tomato and a sprinkle of grated cheese
  8. bake at 300 degrees for 30-45 minutes and serve with salad
