easy meat lasagna

made this last sunday for tea cum dinner. budak-budak still lapar, singgah Jusco pekena Hot&Roll

recipe as printed on the back of lasagna box :-)

250g San Remo instant lasagna ( even though it says No Pre-Cooking Required, you will have to boil it to al dante)
2 tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chooped
1 clove garlic, crushed
500g minced beef
5 tbsp tomato paste
2 x 400g canned tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of nutmeg
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp plain flour
2 cups milk
125 mozzarella/cheddar cheese

Meat sauce
Heat oil in a saucepan. Add onion, carrot and garlic, cook until soft. Add minced beef, cook until brown. Stir in tomato paste, canned tomatoes and chicken stock. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cover and cook gently 20mins.

Cheese sauce
Melt butter in a separate saucepan, stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes over gentle heat. Remove from heat, stir milk. Return to heat, stir until thick and smooth. Season with salt, pepper and add mozzarella or cheddar cheese, stirring over low heat until cheese melts.

Preheat oven to 180C. Pour 1/2 cup of the meat sauce into a lightly greased baking dish. Alternate layers of lasagna, meat and cheese sauces, ending with cheese sauce layer (allow 4 layers). Sprinkle with grated parmesan/mozarella cheese, bake in oven for 35 - 40 minutes or until cooked through (test if cooked by pricking with a fork). Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
