This recipe includes the way my Mum does the cheese component in her lasagne. Its quick, its easy, and its really tasty and especially cheese. Mmm.
2 tablespoons oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
700 minced beef
2 cans of tinned tomatoes, diced
½ cup red wine
1 tsp dried oregano
Dash of worcestershire sauce
375g fresh lasagne sheets
300 grams cottage cheese
1 large handful of grated cheddar cheese
100 grams grated parmesan
2-3 tbs milk
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the onion over medium heat until softened. Add the mince and brown well, breaking up any lumps with a fork. Add the tins of tomatoes, wine, worcestershire and oregano, and season. Bring to a simmer for 15-30 minutes.
In a bowl mix the cottage cheese, cheddar, parmesan, milk, parsley and salt and pepper to make a cheese spread.
Preheat the oven to moderate 180.Start with a thin layer of meat sauce over the base and top with a thin layer of cheese spread. Lay the lasagne sheets on top, gently pressing to push out any air. Continue the layers, finishing with cheese spread. Bake for 30-45 mins or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before cutting.
