30 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes to cook

A lasagna that would make Garfield jealous!


500g beef mince
1 jar of Dolmio bolognaise sauce
1 packet of La Triestina lasagne sheets
1 small packet of grated mozzarella cheese
200g of fresh ricotta cheese (from the deli)
2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Optional White Cheese Sauce:

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons flour
40g tasty cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese


1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frypan
2. Add the mince and cook until brown, use a spoon to separate any chunks
3. Add the jar of Dolmio, fill the empty jar ¼ with water and shake to remove excess sauce, add to mixture
4. Simmer for 20 minutes
5. Boil a large pot of water and add a tablespoon of salt
6. Add the lasagne sheets one at a time and stir gently to prevent sticking. When cooked drain and rinse with cold water to cool

9. In a lasagna dish, layer the bottom of the dish with 2-3 sheets of pasta
10. Spoon in one third of the bolognaise sauce and spread evenly
11. Add small teaspoonsful of the parmesan and ricotta mixture on top of the bolognaise and sprinkle a handful of mozzarella cheese over the top.
13. Repeat process with the next two layers and cover the top layer with remaining pasta sheets
15. Add optional cheese sauce (below)
16. Cover with foil, making sure that the foil is not touching the cheese or it will stick and bake in the oven covered for 30 minutes
17. Bake a further 5-10 minutes uncovered to brown the cheese on top

Optional White Cheese Sauce:

1. Melt the butter in a fry pan, remove from the heat
2. Add the flour and stir until combined
3. Return to the heat and cook slowly for a minute, remove from heat again
4. Add the milk slowly and stir until combined
5. Return to the heat and stir until sauce boils and thickens
6. Add the tasty cheese and parmesan, stir until all combined
7. Pour the sauce on the top layer of pasta

    I find your recipe intriguing. I never start a lasagne with pasta...I always start it with the meat sauce.
    Thankyou for your adaptation. I love to see different versions of things :)
