2 weeks after new years and still trying to be healthy, amazing! Usually cave after 2 days!
In keeping with the healthy theme, I have found a really tasty lasagne recipe. To be honest it would be hard to tell the difference between this and the original.
Lean mince and light cheese sauce makes this a tasty healthy option for the whole family.
Give it a try.
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated
2 garlic cloves, crushed
500 grams lean mince
2 cans chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup beef stock
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons dried herbs
1 packet fresh lasagne sheets
500 mls skim milk
2 tablespoons cornflour
100 grams reduced fat cheese
In a large fry-pan, fry mince and onion in a little olive oil till soft. Add carrot and zucchini and garlic, cook for a few minutes until the mince has browned and veges are soft.
Add tomatoes, stock, tomato paste and herbs. Bring to the boil then let simmer for 15mins.
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius, spread a little of mince mixture on bottom of oven proof dish, add a layer of pasta and continue to layer till you run out of mince or pan almost full. Leave the top layer pasta.
To make the cheese sauce, mix a little cornflour with a splash of milk to form a paste, whisk over a low heat while slowly adding milk till smooth. Add cheese and whisk till melted and sauce is thick.
Spread the sauce over the top of the lasagne and bake in oven for 45 minutes. Let stand for 15mins and serve with a crisp green salad.
