Lasagne

This is my recipe for Lasagne.

First, proceed as per my Meat Pasta / Chicken pasta recipe but make the sauce slightly thicker with slightly less vegetables.

Then:

Cheese Sauce

Ingredients

  • 60g butter
  • 60g flour
  • 300g grated Mozarella cheese
  • 1 pint of milk
  • nutmeg
  • salt
  • black pepper

Method

  • Melt the butter in a pan, being careful not to burn
  • add the flour, stiring constankcaltly
  • cook for 30 seconds or so
  • Gradually add the milk, stirring all the time.
  • Continue heating and stiring until the sauce has fully thickened. Be careful of the heat, it can catch on the bottom of the pan and burn easily!
  • Take off the heat
  • Add the Mozzarella and stir in until melted – this produces a thick, rubbery sauce.
  • Stir in nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste
