Quick and easy lasagne

    1 hour 20 min

    I'm put off making lasagne just by reading most recipes because they're so elaborate. This one, however, I keep making over and over again because it's so beautifully simple. It's also great to prepare when you have guests.

    Serves: 8 

    • 450g beef mince
    • 1 (500g) pack uncooked lasagne sheets
    • 2 eggs
    • 425g ricotta cheese
    • 450g mozzarella cheese
    • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated
    • 1.5L ready made tomato pasta sauce from a jar

    1. Brown the mince in a pan without oil until it is cooked and crumbly.
    2. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a rectangular baking dish (it should fit three or four lasagne sheets slightly overlapping each other).
    3. Whisk the eggs and mix with ricotta, half the mozzarella cheese, and all of the Parmesan cheese.
    4. Pour enough of the pasta sauce into the dish to cover the bottom of it. Cover it with three or four lasagne sheets, depending on the size of the dish. Spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture on top of them, then 1/2 of the mince. Sprinkle with half of the remaining mozzarella and pour 250ml of the pasta sauce over it.
    5. Place a second layer of lasagne sheets on top, spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture over them and pour 250-500ml of the pasta sauce on top.
    6. Add a third layer of lasagne sheets on top and top with the rest of the ricotta mixture. Spread the rest of the mince on top and pour another 250-500ml of the pasta sauce over it.
    7. When placing the top layer of 3 or 4 lasagne sheets, pour the rest of the pasta sauce over it and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella.
    8. Tightly cover with aluminium foil and bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
    9. Allow to stand for 15 minutes before serving.
