I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to try to make it at home! Of course I doctored it to suit my pocket and it was actually pretty easy! Hubby, being a fan of lasagne, loved it!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 3 or 4 people
3 sheets of lasagne pasta
3 handfuls of grated cheddar cheese
1 can of chopped tomatoes
One onion (optional)
10ml mixed herbs
1 teaspoon garlic
Oil for frying
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat your oven to 190°c and grease the dish that you will be putting the mix into with Spray and Cook or with a thin layer of oil.
Break the sheets of lasagne pasta in half so that you have 6 “sheets” of pasta. I used a knife to crack them in half. Put them into a bowl of boiling hot water and cook them in the microwave for about 5 minutes until they are soft. Take them out of the water and put them onto a flat pan or counter.
Cut up your onion and fry half of it with the garlic in your pan. Once it starts browning, add the mince and 5ml mixed herbs, salt and pepper. Cook the mince until it starts to brown and take it off the stove.
Mix your can of tomatoes with the remaining herbs and onion and put ½ of this into the pan that you will be cooking the lasagne in.
Roll your mince into balls that will fit the width of the lasagne pasta. Starting at the end with the mince balls, start to roll the lasagne noodles up as you would with a carpet. When you get to the end, put the rolled up lasagne on top of the tomatoes in the pan with the last seam or last end facing downwards.
Cover the lasagne with the rest of the tomatoes mix and sprinkle cheese all over. Pop into the oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is light brown and crispy. Take it out and serve with garlic bread and a salad or on its own. If there are left over’s, it also freezes very well!
