Delicious lasagna. Step by step recipe
- For the Bolognese sauce we grind peeled and washed onions with carrots in a blender.
- The pulp of beef or pork is passed through a meat grinder.
- In a frying pan we heat the vegetable oil along with the butter, put the garlic, fry it.
- In a pan with garlic we send chopped onions and carrots.
- Fry vegetables until soft, stirring constantly.
- We shift the minced meat into the pan to vegetables, knead with a spatula, break the lumps. Fry until meat is ready.
- Pour in tomato sauce mixed with a spoon of tomato paste, add salt, black pepper, dried basil (all spices to taste). Mix thoroughly.
- We cover the pan with a lid, continue to simmer over low heat for 30-40 minutes.
- At this time, prepare the Bechamel sauce. We put a pan with a thick bottom on the stove, put butter. As the butter melts, pour the flour and mix.
- Pour the milk gradually, immediately mix quickly. Bring the mass to a light boil. When the mass becomes thick and uniform, add black pepper, salt and nutmeg (to taste). After that, immediately remove the pan from the stove.
- We put a large pot of water on the fire (in it we will cook sheets of lasagna). Salt to taste and pour a little vegetable oil. Bring the water to a boil and begin to cook the sheets of lasagna. We put one sheet into the water, wait literally 2 minutes, get it, transfer it to a bowl of cold water. Then we immediately take it out of the water and put it on a clean waffle towel.
- We will collect lasagna in a baking dish (I have it 25 by 40 centimeters).
- Lubricate the bottom of the mold with Bechamel sauce, spread the sheets of lasagna on it with one layer.
- On the lasagna we spread the Bolognese sauce, on it - the Bechamel sauce.
- We cover everything with hard cheese grated on a coarse grater.
- Repeat the layers. If your lasagna sheets are larger in shape, trim around the edges.
- We spread the sheets of lasagna with the last layer, grease them with Bechamel sauce and sprinkle with grated cheese (by the way, I have parmesan).
- We send the form with lasagna to the oven, heated to 180 degrees for 40 minutes.
Serve the lasagna on the table slightly cooled, cut into portions: you can decorate with mint leaves. It is enough to change the filling, and you will get a completely new dish: it all depends on your imagination and preferences. You can see even more recipes of lasagna on our site “Very tasty”.
