Winter Warming Lasagne Recipe with Lean Minced Beef

Everyone loves a lasagne don’t they? There is more than one reason to cook a few this Winter. A lasagne is cheap to make and lasts for more than one meal, proving you are not cooking for a large family. You can freeze what’s left for another day. It’s a good hearty meal, with plenty of protein and a splash of carbohydrate. Don’t diss the carbs. We need them and even more so in the cold Winter months. As long as you don’t go over-board, then they are fine and make up a balanced healthy diet.

Fresh Lean Meat for Better Health

Lean meat is better for us. Don’t neglect your seasoning however, as we get a more intense flavour from a higher fat content, so we must infuse our leaner cuts with flavour ourselves. We all know that salt is it when it comes to flavouring food, but let’s not get too handy with the grinder!

Your Ingredients List

  • One pack of lean beef mince
  • Half an onion
  • Six dried lasagne sheets
  • A pinch of chilli flakes, or one finely chopped fresh chilli
  • 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • Black Pepper
  • Salt
  • Lasagne (red) sauce
  • Beef stock cube
  • Paprika

For the White Sauce

  • Knob of butter
  • Handful of grated mature cheddar
  • Plain flour
  • warm milk
  • Pinch of mustard power
  • One grind of salt

Cooking Method

Fry off the onion on a medium heat until soft. Add you mince meat and turn to heat through. Leave for a few minutes so that all of the mince is brown.

Add you beef stock cube, black pepper, salt and chilli. Cook for a further three minutes on a low heat. Next add your lasagne sauce and your Worcester sauce to the mix.

Cover the pan with a lid and leave to simmer on a low heat whilst you make the white sauce.

White Sauce

Heat up a sauce-pan and melt a knob of salted butter until runny. Next add a tablespoon of plain flour and make a rue. Slowly add your warm milk and whisk as you go. Stop when your sauce is as thick as you like it. Next add a handful of cheese, some black pepper, mustard powder and salt. Bring to the boil and then turn the heat down to low.

Making up Your Warming Lasagne

Add two sheets of dried lasagne to a square oven dish. Next spoon over your lasagne mix. I like to add the sauce onto the pasta rather than the meat. So add another two sheets and spoon over some of the white sauce. Then add another layer of your mix followed by one more layer of lasagne sheets and a further layer of sauce.

Top it off with plenty of grated cheese and some paprika.

Cook on 180 degrees for 25 minutes in the centre of your oven, or until the cheese top is starting to brown.

Serve with winter vegetables and garlic bread!
