Besides a strong preference for Indian food, I have another weakness: Lasagne. Delicious that Bolognese sauce combined with dough and cheese. However, there is one thing I absolutely can not appreciate: a thick layer of béchamel sauce. Yes I know it officially belongs in this dish, but it’s just not my thing. I personally find it such a waste of the tasty lasagna. Of course I make the lasagna from scratch. Want to know how? Look at the recipe below!
- 1 onion;
- 3 cloves of garlic;
- 500 grams of ground beef;
- herbs ( thyme, rosemary, basil);
- bay leaf;
- 2 cans of tomato paste (140 grams);
- 1 can of peeled tomatoes;
- 1 pack sieved tomatoes;
- 4 teaspoons of sugar;
- 1 teaspoon salt;
- Lasagne (homemade recipe to follow until the part of cutting the spaghetti );
- Cheese: aged chees or mozzarella.
- Oven baking dish;
- Pasta Machine.
Cut the onion and garlic fine. Grab the frying pan and put a little olive oil in it. Put the pan on the stove on low heat. Add the onion and bake for 3 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Grab a skillet. Open the cans of tomato paste and put them in the skillet. Put the skillet on the stove on low heat. Stir with spoon carefully about 3 minutes. Smell if the tomato paste is done. If it still smells sour, it must still bake a bit longer, otherwise it’s ready . Then turn off the heat and add the onions / garlic. Grab the frying pan and put it in a little oil. Bake the minced beef brown. Throw in the collected herbs, salt and pepper. Add the tomato/onion mixture with it , the peeled tomatoes and sieved tomatoes. Add sugar and top it with a bay leaf . Put the lid on the pan and let simmer for 30 minutes . Stir occasionally.
Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Spoon 1/3 of bolognaise sauce in the baking dish. Cover with a layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat this once more. Spoon the last bolognaise sauce on the lasagne sheets and sprinkle with grated cheese or sliced mozzarella (or a combination). Set the dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.4Pure: lasagne
