Traditional family-friendly lasagne

Traditional family-friendly lasagne

A shortlist of 5 quality ingredients is all you need to make this easy, impressive family favourite. Go on - give them a taste of what they really love!

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes

What you need:

  • 500g lean minced beef
  • 500g jar DOLMIO red sauce for lasagne
  • 6 lasagne sheets (weighing about 100g)
  • 470g jar DOLMIO white sauce for lasagne
  • 75g mature Cheddar cheese, grated

What you do:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C / fan oven 170°C / Gas 5. Heat a large frying pan and add the mince, cook over a high heat, stirring well until browned and cooked through. Tip in the DOLMIO red sauce for lasagne, stir and simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  2. Tip half the Bolognese mixture into a large rectangular baking dish measuring about 26cm x 20cm. Arrange 3 lasagne sheets on top, then spread half the DOLMIO white sauce for lasagne over them. Repeat the layers, then sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the surface.
  3. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until cooked and golden brown. Allow to stand for a few minutes, then serve.

Handy cook's tips:

Add 150g sliced closed cup mushrooms to the mince mixture when you add the sauce. Make sure that you choose lasagne sheets that don't need pre-cooking (most varieties sold are ready-to-use). For a vegetarian alternative, use Quorn mince instead of beef. If you want a change from red meat, substitute pork mince or turkey mince for the beef.
