How do you do yours?

make a pint of fairly thin white sauce, flavoured with nutmeg, thyme and bay

make a vegetable sauce with sieved tomatoes, onion, garlic, peppers, mushrooms, courgettes and herbs, which I then stick in the blender for a few seconds.

cook the beef and mix it in with the veg sauce.

butter lasagne dish and put a layer of meat sauce in, then layer of lasagne (uncooked), white sauce, meat sauce, lasagne etc until top layer, which has white sauce and then thick layer of grated cheese on top, usually mozzarella or cheddar.

Cover with foil,bake for 40 mins. take off foil, bake for another 20 mins.

It's a faff and uses every pan in the house, but DC love it.

how do you do yours? I'm always after a homemade version that doesn't use every chuffing pan I own.

Fry beef mince in pan. Add chopped onions, mushrooms & tomatoes. Chuck in Worcestershire sauce, red wine, rosemary, basil, garlic, beef stock, umm, think that's it. Let simmer.

Whip up a cheese sauce. Add nutmeg, salt & pepper.

Layer mince, lasagne sheet, sauce, mince, lasagne sheet, sauce on top. Grate a bit of Parmesan and crack some black pepper over, then bung in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Gorgeous.

ahem

Much simpler than that, but probably also less healthy...

Brown a load of mince, add stock cubes, mustard powder, oregano, tomato puree and Lea & Perrins, then a pack of passata. Leave to simmer.

Meanwhile make a cheese sauce.

Half the meat sauce into the dish, then lasagne sheets, then cheese sauce, repeat then finish with grated cheese.

Stick the pans in the dishwasher while its in the oven grin

Bol sauce, white sauce with nutmeg. Layer up (I always put a layer of pasta sheets on the bottom of the dish too otherwise I wouldn't get enough pasta in to fill dh the family up). Cheese on top. Oven.

My dm used to make it even quicker than that.

Stick frozen mince in a bowl. Pour over a jar of Dolmio. When heated through pour in dish layering with pasta. Pour over a jar of Dolmio white sauce and stick in oven.

Bless her, cooking was not her strong point.
