Details

PREP TIME: 30 Minutes
COOKING TIME: 50 Minutes
SERVES: 6-8 people

**With ingredients, please note to use plant-based milk such as soy or oat and plant-based butter and cheese.

INGREDIENTS

4 tbsp butter
1⁄2 cup plain flour
1 litre milk
1 quantity Bolognese sauce (see recipe below)
1 pack lasagna pasta sheets
250g grated mozzarella
125g grated parmesan

METHOD

Preheat oven to 160 degrees fan-forced (180 regular).

To make the bechamel sauce melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until foaming.

Add flour.

Cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbling.

Remove from heat.

Slowly add milk, whisking constantly, until mixture is smooth.

Return to heat. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 10 to 12 minutes or until sauce comes to the boil, thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon.

Remove from heat. Stir in half the cheese and salt.

In a large, deep baking dish, layer v2 Bolognese sauce (see below) and pasta sheets at least 3 times leaving pasta on top.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese over pasta and pour over the bechamel. Bake for 40 minutes or until bubbling brown and golden on top.

The Sauce

Olive oil

2 carrots, peeled and finely diced

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

500ml vegetable stock

2 tbsp paprika

1 tbsp dried mixed herbs

1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Salt and pepper

1 tin of diced tomatoes

Heat a large frypan on medium-high heat and add a splash of olive oil. Add the carrot, celery, onion and garlic and fry off until softened. Add v2mince and cook until browned and crumbling, using a wooden spoon to break it down.

Add stock and continue to stir gently. Add paprika, dried herbs, cloves and cinnamon and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour in a tin of diced tomatoes and reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
