Before we start making the lasagne, let's gather all the ingredients we'll need. You can find most of these ingredients in your local grocery store or supermarket.
- Lasagne sheets- 12
- Minced beef- 500g
- Tomato puree- 400g
- Chopped onion- 1
- Garlic cloves- 4
- Dried oregano- 1 tsp
- Béchamel sauce- 500ml
- Grated Parmesan cheese- 100g
- Parsley- to garnish (optional)
- Oil- as required
- Salt and pepper- to taste
Step 1: Prepare the Meat Sauce
Heat some oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced beef and cook until it turns brown. This should take about 5-6 minutes. Add the chopped onion and garlic and stir well. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the onions become translucent.
Now, add the tomato puree, dried oregano, and season with salt and pepper. Mix everything well and let it cook for about 10-12 minutes on low heat until the sauce thickens.
Step 2: Cook the Lasagne Sheets
Cook the lasagne sheets in a large pot of salted boiling water for about 5-6 minutes or until al dente. Drain the lasagne sheets in a colander and keep them aside.
Step 3: Prepare the Béchamel Sauce
In a separate saucepan, heat the béchamel sauce until it starts to simmer. Add half of the grated Parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir well. Cook for a few minutes until everything is well combined.
Step 4: Assemble the Lasagne
Preheat your oven to 180°C. Take a baking dish and grease it lightly with some oil.
Layer the cooked lasagne sheets in the bottom of the dish. Pour some of the meat sauce over the sheets, followed by some of the béchamel sauce. Repeat this layering process until you have used up all the sheets and sauces. The final layer should be the béchamel sauce.
Sprinkle the remaining grated Parmesan cheese on top of the lasagne.
Step 5: Bake the Lasagne
Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the top has turned golden brown and the lasagne is bubbling hot.
Remove the lasagne from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
