Allium B Kitchen: Lazy Lasagne


As the weather outside is utterly horrendous, we have a little treat for you in the form of rich, cheesy goodness. As usual we are good to you and have made it as easy as possible, so you spend less time in that kitchen. Although we are not positive that the picture does it any justice, it really does taste amazing.

You will need (for 2)

250g beef mince
1 onion, chopped
2 large cloves of garlic
100g mushrooms
1 beef oxo cube
1 tbsp lea & perrins
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1/2 tube of tomato puree
1 glass of red wine
3 tbsp mixed herbs
1 bay leaf
1 large squirt of tomato ketchup (very technical)
cheddar cheese
lasagna sheets (fresh or packet)

1. Heat a large pan/wok on a high heat, add the mince and brown for about 5 minutes
2. Add your chopped onions, garlic and lea & perrinns into the mince and cook for another 2-3 minutes
3. sprinkle your oxo cube over the mince and mix
4. Add your tin of tomatoes and turn down to a medium heat
5. Add your wine, puree, ketchup, herbs, bay leaf and stir all together
6. Simmer and stir for another 5 minutes
7. Now add your lasagna sheets so they cover the mixture entirely. This will work better with fresh pasta as it won't take anytime at all, but you can still use sheets from a pack (that's what I did)
8. You will need to cover the pan with a lid (I used a microwave lid) and leave for 10 minutes so the pasta can cook. You will need to check on the mixture so the mince doesn't get stuck to the bottom of the pan. If you are using fresh pasta please follow the packs instructions for cooking times, it's normally only a few minutes
9. Once your pasta is nearly done, lift the lid and add the mozzarella all over the mixture. You can add as much as you like.
10. Cover with the lid again, so the heat can melt the cheese
11. After you feel the mixture looks gooey enough, take it off the heat and give it a stir to mix it all up a bit, and you will be left with a very lazy lasagne
12. For good measure you can sprinkle with cheddar/parmesan or any cheese of your fancy

lazy lasagna yummy
