Classic Beef Lasagne

This rich and tasty beef lasagne is great on a cold winter night, served piping hot from the oven alongside a crisp green salad and crusty bread.  If you are short of time the lasagne can be prepared the day before,  which will allow the flavours to really develop.  This is a delicious meal the whole family will love.

How to Cook

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. To prepare the mince mixture, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the mince and cook for 4 to 5 minutes over medium high heat, until it is brown. Mash with a fork to break up the mince as it cooks. Add the Gregg's Crushed Garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the Gregg's Whole Bay Leaf, Gregg's Italian Herbs, Gregg's Tomato Paste, canned tomatoes and water. Season with freshly ground Gregg's Natural Sea Salt Grinder and Gregg's Whole Black Peppercorn Grinder to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the sauce is thick and the mince is cooked.
  3. To prepare the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the flour and Gregg's Ground Nutmeg and cook over medium heat, stirring, until blended. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly. Continue stirring over medium heat until the sauce boils and thickens. Cook for a further minute then remove from the heat and stir in the cheese.
  4. Lightly grease a 2 litre capacity rectangular baking dish. Add a sheet of lasagne. Top with ⅓ of the mince mixture and ⅓ of the cheese sauce. Repeat twice, ending with a layer of cheese sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the lasagne is golden brown and bubbling.
  6. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  7. Garnish with basil leaves if desired.
