Bolognaise lasagne


Bolognaise lasagne
Lasagne is an Italian pasta that comes in rectangular sheets. These are used to separate layers of filling, like a large savoury oven-baked millefeuille. A bolognaise lasagne combines bechamel sauce, minced meat and tomato sauce.

Peel and chop 500 g mushrooms.

Peel and chop finely 2 onions.

Add the chopped mushrooms and cook while stirring for 3 or 4 minutes.

Set aside.

Add 2 Bouquet garni, 2 beefs stock cube and 4 cloves garlic en chemise.

Leave to cook uncovered until the meat is cooked and has turned brown. It doesn't matter if some juice comes out; don't throw this away.

Stage 4 - 2 min.

Stage 6 - 18 min.

Prepare 600 ml Bechamel sauce, but it should be on the runny side, not too thick.

Check your lasagne, as there are 2 types: the sheets will either be ready to use, or they will need to be cooked first (follow the instructions on the packet).

Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F).

Stage 7 - 2 min.

Remarks

The proportions for this recipe are only approximate. You can vary them according to taste, the size of your dish, whatever you have to hand, etc.

For the cheese topping, Comté, Gruyère, Parmesan or Cheddar work very well. I prefer to use Parmesan for the inside layers and Comté on the top, as it browns nicely.

To save time, you can mix the cheese into the béchamel sauce when you are making it, keeping back a little to scatter over the top.

Lasagne is a dish that tastes even better when it is reheated, so make plenty in a big dish for later use. It freezes well.

And to drink?

An italian red wine, from the Bologna region (of course!), like a Sangiovese.
