This is my favourite lasagne recipe.

Ingredients:
1 carrot, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
250g minced beef
75ml white wine
75ml beef stock
400g tin chopped tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
2 TBSP basil
1 TBSP parsley


Bechamel Sauce
50g butter
50g flour
1 pint milk
100g grated cheese (gruyere and Parmesan)
Small pinch of grated nutmeg


12 Lasagne sheets

Method:
Step 1: Preheat oven 180c
Step 2: make bolognese sauce. Heat olive oil in pan and fry carrot, celery and onion for 4 mins
Step 3: Turn up the heat add garlic and beef, fry until it changes colour.
Step 4: Add wine, stock and tomatoes, seasoning and sugar. Simmer for 20 mins
Step 5: Add basil and parsley
Step 6: make bechamel sauce. Melt butter in pan, add flour and cook for 2 mins. Gradually add the milk stirring continuously. Wait for it to thicken then take off heat and add cheese.
Step 7: Assemble lasagne - spoon little bolognese in gratin dish, cover with layer of cheese sauce, then cover with lasagne sheets, repeat this until you almost reach top, finishing with layer of lasagne and bechamel sauce.
Step 8: Bake in oven for 40 mins.

  7. The lasagna looks wonderful. I'm surprised your husband can't tell there's celery in it though. I hate celery and can taste it immediately.

    Do you have the recipe for the malt loaf? I am from Devon but now live in the US and one thing I really miss is sticky malt loaf. They don't sell it over here.

  10. Beth, Thanks for the link to the malt loaf recipe.
    I lived in Torquay and spent two weeks a year on holiday in St. Ives. Right now I am very homesick and wish I was back there enjoying a 99 cone!
