La Lasagna

Mum had to attend a Techer's Day Dinner in Putrajaya.. so, that made Chef Denise in charge of dinner for the 3 girls left at home =P It was a perfect opportunity to try something new that my mum abhores~ Lasagna~ ^__^ 

First, prepare the ingredients~

 4 lagsana sheets, half a bottle of prego sauce, a cup of milk, 6 pieces of Cheesedale Cheddar, 250g of minced beef, 2 tbs of butter and flour, oil, Parmesan cheese powder, oregano, salt + pepper, chopped half a carrot, 1 onion and 5 cloves of garlic.

Then, cook the meat sauce. heat the oil, sauté the onion, garlic and carrot, add the beef and cook till it turns brown.  After that, add the prego sauce ( actually people make their own tomato sauce from tomatoes and stuff, using prego is cheating XD ) and water and let it boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes. 

Next, the cheese sauce~ melt 2 tbs of butter and stir in 2 tbs of flour over small fire. Then, remove the pan/pot from the heat and add 2 cups of milk. Put it back over the heat and add in the sliced cheddar cheese. (Packets of cheese sold in supermarket are sooo expensive, so i opted for sandwich cheese which turned out ok too ^^) Stir the mixture all the while  (u won't want it to burn ) till it is smooth.

Lastly, we layer the it~ start with the meat sauce at the bottom, then layer it accordingly - lasagna, meat sauce, cheese sauce. Keep repeating the layers and end with the cheese sauce right on the top. I managed to complete 4 layers only as my baking dish is too small.. Used up only half of the cheese sauce, so will reduce the cheese sauce recipe by half next time. =P Sprinkle a lil cheese powder on top and walah~ it's ready for the oven =)

I added a lil too much cheese powder on the top, which surprisingly doesn't melt in the oven =.= anyways, preheat the oven at 200 degree Celsius and cover the dish with aluminium foil before baking it for 40 minutes. Only remove the aluminium foil for the last 10 minutes 



TaDaA~ ^_^
