  1. To make the meat sauce: Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Saute onions until translucent. Add garlic, stir for 1 minute, then add the beef. Cook until beef is browned.
  2. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, courgette, carrot, wine, vegemite, basil, chilli and herbs. Mix well and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes or until thick. If you want a smoother sauce, mash the mixture a little.
  3. To make the white sauce: Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add just enough flour to make a thick paste. Gradually add 125ml milk and stir continuously to create a smooth sauce.
  4. Stir over low heat until sauce thickens. Once it boils, it has reached its maximum thickness. Add extra milk to thin out if necessary.
  5. To assemble: Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a medium size baking dish. Spoon a thin layer of meat sauce into the baking dish, sprinkle with cheeses. Top with a layer of white sauce and cover the lasagne sheets.
  6. Repeat the layers until all the sauces have been used up, finishing on lasagne sheets. Top with a few slices of tomato for presentation.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes. Serve with salad.
