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
- 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:
