Mid week, last week was one of those days. I therefore decided to cook one of our favourite meals! Lasagna. Made my way (and according to hubby, THE BEST way!)
From the ingredients below I used the food that was kindly supplied by Dolmio to cook up a huge lasagna. Making my own cheese sauce (instead of a bechamel sauce) and using two jars of Original Dolmio, containing no artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or sweeteners. Thank Goodness!
Then I added two jars of Original Dolmio sauce.
I stirred the sauce into the meat, adding some more herbs, worcester sauce, brown fruity sauce, salt and pepper, then left it all to simmer.
Meanwhile I made the cheese sauce! Making a roux with the melted butter and some of the flour, I added milk and the remaining flour to the pan. Slowly bringing the sauce to the boil, whilst stirring and then simmering to thicken, I added lots of grated cheddar.
Once the sauce was ready and the meat had cooked, then cooled, I made the Lasagna up to pop into the oven. Layering the meat, sauce and lasagna sheets, ending up with a top layer of cheese sauce and more grated cheddar! Mmm.....Looking good, even though I say so myself!
Whilst the lasagna baked in the oven for 45 minutes, I prepared a side salad and cooked up some garlic bread. Here's the finished dish ready to be devoured by the family!
Sitting at the table together we tucked into the delicious healthy mid week dish, grateful for Dolmio and the opportunity to enjoy a family meal together. Dolmio Thank Goodness!
The males even feature in a video clip we did, letting us know their thoughts on the meal!
Please excuse the recorded Essex accent! I hate my voice....
