You probably noticed that I am a pretty big fan of my new cookbook! My boyfriend is a huge lasagna fan and I kept telling him that i’d make him a lasagna, so yesterday I finally did! This recipe is AMAZING, and I don’t say that easily… Here it is, enjoy it! (also bare in mind you need about one to one and a half hours to make this)

Method:
– Heat up the olive oil, then add the onion, celery and carrot. When these are sautéed a bit add the minced meat. Mix the meat with the vegetables and brown the meat, when the meat is browned add the tomato sauce and white wine and simmer for about 30 minutes. Now is the best time to go to the bechamel sauce and start to make this.

– At this point you have to start putting together your lasagna. Butter or oil your pan. Then add a thin layer of your tomato and meat sauce. Then add the lasagna sheets to cover the pan. Now you add your second layer of tomato sauce, then some bechamel, and your two cheeses. Continue to layer till you get to the last layer. You should add some extra cheese to your last layer!
