Get Into The Kitchen-Lasagne

Who doesn’t love a great lasagne! Perfect for enjoying with garlic bread, a side salad or even on its own. I have always loved the convenience of a lasagne and don’t get me started on the amount of cheese you can add…optional of course!

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped

  • 30g of spinach (small handful)
  • Lasagne sheets (I a used gluten free option)

  • Parmesan and fresh parsley to serve (optional)

White Sauce Layer:

White Sauce:

  1. In a sauce pan, melt butter on a medium heat
  2. Add flour and stir continuously for 1min to ensure it does not stick to the pan
  3. Turn down to a low heat, add milk and whisk to ensure that the mixture mixes with the milk- don’t let it go lumpy
  4. When the mixture begins to thicken, add cheese and continue to stir for another 1min
  5. Take off the heat and allow it to cool slightly

Assembly

  • Layer meat mixture, white sauce and top with lasagne sheets
  • This recipe will make 2 layers usually
  • Top with remainder of white sauce, sprinkle with cheese and parsley
