Cheese sauce
  • 50 gm butter
  • 80 gm plain flour
  • 1 L milk (I use milk powder)
  • 1 onion diced
  • 250 gm beef mince
  • about 600 gm grated vegetables (I used beetroot, carrot and broccoli)
  • 2 x 400gm tins of tomatoes
  • 1 x 400 gm tin of lentils drained
  • 2 tbspn tomato paste
  • 200 ml water
  • lasagne sheets
  • 200 gm grated cheese (I use half cheddar, half Parmesan)
  1. Fry onion in a little oil until softened, add mince and brown.
  2. Once mince is browned, add remaining ingredients and stir until combined, allow to simmer for about 30 mins. (But you can do it as it suits you, cook for less, or waaay longer, It'll continue to cook in the oven)
Cheese sauce
  1. Melt butter over medium heat. Once melted, stir through flour, until completely combined with butter. Allow to cook for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. Pour in 200ml of the milk, stir to combine. Stir slowly and allow to thicken. Add milk in 200 ml batches, allow to thicken between each addition. This is a slow process, that your time. Once all milk has been added, and sauce is thicken, remove from heat and stir in half of the grated cheese.
  1. To assemble, put two spoonfuls of sauce at the bottom of your oven pan. Add a layer of lasagne sheets, add half the sauce, half the cheese sauce, lasagne sheets, the remaining sauce, remaining cheese sauce, then finally remaining cheese sprinkle over the top. Bake 180*C until top is brown.
