- 3 1/2 oz ( 100 ml) red wine
- 1 oz (30 g) flour, 1 oz (30 g) butter and 2 cups (500 ml) milk
- two balls fresh mozzarella
- 1 tsp Fresh thyme
- 5 oz (150 g) grated Gruyère cheese
- 2 oz (50 g) grated Parmesan cheese
- 9 fresh Lasagna sheets
Now, here are the different steps you will need to follow to make the Homemade Meat Lasagna with a 30 minute preparation
Start by browning the shallot, garlic clove, carrots and celery in the olive oil. Then, before they turn color, remove from the pan and set aside. Place the minced meat in the pan and cook until colored. Then add the vegetables, the tomato coulis, the red wine, the broth, thyme, salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer for about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, prepare your béchamel. Start by melting the butter in a saucepan, then add the flour and let simmer for 2 minutes. Add your milk all at once and stir until you get a smooth sauce. Season.
In the bottom of a buttered baking dish, spread a little bechamel sauce with a wooden spoon. Lay a first layer of lasagna and season with sliced mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
Then put another layer of lasagna and spread one-third of the tomato mince and parmesan cheese. Alternate the béchamel, the lasagne leaves, the tomato mince, until all the ingredients are gone.
Finish with a layer of lasagna covered with bechamel sauce and grated gruyere cheese. Finally, put in an oven at 180°C or 350°F for about 35 to 40 minutes then serve hot.
