Olive oil

6 large Onions, finely chopped

3kg Carrots

6 garlic cloves, finely chopped

6kg fresh beef mince

10 canned plum tomatoes

Mixed dried herbs

6 packets of precooked dried lasagne sheets

Grated cheese

(For the béchamel sauce see the cheese sauce recipe)


  1. Gently fry the onion and carrots for about 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook for another couple of minutes, stirring to coat well. Stir in the beef and a dash of black pepper and cook until the beef has lost its raw pink look.
  2. Add the tomatoes with their juice and stir thoroughly. Simmer uncovered for approximately 1 hour.
  3. Make the béchamel sauce.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a shallow baking dish.
  5. Pour enough béchamel into the baking dish to just cover the base. Place a layer of lasagne sheets on top, followed by a layer of meat sauce, then another layer of béchamel. Continue with more layers until both sauces are used up. Add a final sprinkling of cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until bubbling all over and a knife slips easily through the layers of lasagne.
