Ingredients:

Pasta

  • Pasta sheets
  • Salt

Meat sauce

  • Mutton mince – 200 grams
  • Readymade marinara sauce – 1.5 cups
  • Oregano herbs – 1 Tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1 Tsp
  • chili falkes – 1 Tsp
  • chopped garlic – 3-4 cloves
  • oil – 3 Tbsp

Cheesy sauce:

  • Butter – 50 grams
  • All purpose flour – 4 Tbsp
  • Milk – 1/2 cup
  • Pepper powder – 1/2 Tsp
  • Oregano herbs – 1/2 Tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Parsley – handful chopped.
  • Cream cheese – 1 cup
  • Cooking cream – 200 ML

Topping:

  • Mozzarella cheese – 200 grams or as much needed.

HOW TO MAKE LASAGNA:

Prepping pasta sheets:

  • In a pot or vessel, pour some water and salt and till it’s hot but not boiling.
  • Put pasta noodles in a vessel and pour hot water and let it soak for 30 mins.
  • This technique works for me and gives me enough time to prep meat sauce and cheese sauce simultaneously with worrying about noodles.

Making the meat sauce:

  • In a pan, add oil, mutton mince, onion and cook for 5 mins.
  • Add pepper powder, chili flakes, oregano herbs, chopper garlic, salt and cook for 5 mins.
  • Add store bought readymade marinara sauce and cook it more 5 more mins and the meat sauce is ready.

Making cheesy sauce

  • In a pan, heat the butter, add all purpose flour and mix well.
  • Add milk and mix till there are no lumps.
  • Add pepper powder, salt, oregano herbs and chopped parsley.
  • Add cream cheese and cooking cream and mix well
  • Cook for 2 mins till the sauce is thick and creamy.

Assembeling the lasgana

  • In a glass casserole Start with the meat sauce, so that the pasta does not get burn while baking. Spread it well in the bottom.
  • Next, arrange the pasta sheets according to the size of the sheets you have got, (2 or 3). A layer of meat sauce, cheese sauce and top it with mozzarella cheese shreds.
  • Repeat this step 4 more times.
  • In the 4th layer, skip the meat sauce. This will give the lasagna a bit of a bite and a brown crust.

Baking process

  • Cover the casserole with aluminum foil.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees and bake it for 25 mins.
  • Remove the foil and bake at 250 degrees for 5 more mins. This will give the lasagna a brown top crust.

Notes:

  • Don’t overcook your pasta. We have to bake them, so over cooking can lead to soggy lasagna.
  • Don’t bake for too long. 
  • Lets it cool for 20-30 mins before cutting into it. it take a bit of time for the layers to set in.
