How good is lasagna? Seriously. Isn’t it one of the greatest meals, ever? I have to say, this one is a modification from my brother’s recipe (that is also great, but I’m just adding the Toto touch here).

What I love about this recipe is the flavor explosion it you get in every bite. It has quite a lot of ingredients that go great together and give it a very unique taste.

Below is a list of ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 pack Lasagna sheets
  • 1 pack Tomato sauce
  • 1 pack Creamy lasagna white sauce
  • 2 Onions
  • Fresh basil – handful
  • Fresh spinach – handful
  • Ground beef – 300g
  • 4 Mushrooms
  • Fresh chives – handful
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 200g grated mozzarella
  • 200g grated mature cheddar
  • Chili flakes
  • Olive oil

Step 1: red sauce

Start by dicing the onions, and chopping the chives, the garlic cloves, and the mushrooms. Grease a pan with olive oil, and fry the onions and garlic. Add the beef, the mushrooms, and the chives. Season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes, and keep stir-frying until all the meat’s cooked. Add the tomato sauce and let it simmer for 7 to 8 minutes

Step 2: layers

Layer 1: lasagna sheets. Get an oven baking tray and cover its bottom with lasagna sheets (try not to let the sheets overlap in order for the pasta to cook evenly)

Layer 2: red sauce. Spread an even amount of sauce all over the sheets.

Layer 3: white sauce. Cover the red sauce with an thin amount of white sauce.

Layer 4: spinach. Cover the whole thing with fresh spinach leaves.

Layer 5: Cheese. Mix 50 g of mozzarella with all of the cheddar, and cover the spinach with half of the mixture

Repeat the 5 layers again, and your pot should look about something like this now:

Now for the final touches:

Add final layer of sheets, pour all of the remaining white sauce and spread it evenly, then add the basil. Finally, smother the whole thing with mozzarella:

Preheat the oven at 160 Celsius, and bake the lasagna for 20 to 25 minutes.

You should be ending up with this:
