Quick Lasagne

Much as I really love cooking, sometimes I simply don't have the time to spend in the kitchen. Perfect for students, busy mums and dads or when you just don't have time.

I'm not usually a fan of those jars of ready-made sauces but it has to be said I think most of them have come a long way from the over salty and sugary thick gluey-like sauces they were a while back.

So armed with a couple of big jars of Dolmio tomato, roasted onion and garlic sauce for lasagne and a large jar of their lasagne white sauce this lasagne was whipped up in no time and it tasted good.

No need for a recipe as it tells you all this on the jar - apart from my adding red wine, oregano and black pepper. Using a mixture of pork and beef mince gives the lasagne much more flavour and I really urge you to try it, ask Gordon Ramsay, he's the one that told me!.

Just brown a mixture of half pork and half beef mince, when that's nicely cooked just add the tomato sauce.

Stir well and continue to cook for about 10 minutes or so. As I say, I couldn't help pouring in a small glass of red wine since I think it adds to the flavour along with a pinch of dried oregano and a good pinch of black pepper.

Using ready-made fresh lasagne sheets (made with free-range eggs, please) just layer lasagne, tomato sauce followed by a layer of white sauce and repeat making sure you finish with a lasagne sheet.

Then, top that with the rest of the white sauce and a layer of grated cheese.

Cover with kitchen foil and bake in a preheated oven 200C/400F of Gas 6 for about 40 minutes. Remove the foil and return for a further 5 minutes or so till golden and bubbling.

Top Tip!

You can, of course, freeze your cooked lasagne just as long as it's fully defrosted before reheating till piping hot it will be fine.
