Lasagna

Lasagna

Ingredients:

- 100 ml olive oil

- 750 g lean beef mince

- 300 g prosciutto di Parma

- 1000 g polpa di pomodoro

300g pack fresh lasagne sheets

- 250 g mozzarella di bufala

STEP 1
To make the meat sauce, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook 750g lean beef mince in two batches for about 10 mins until browned all over.

STEP 2
Finely take 250 g of prosciutto di Parma, then stir through the meat mixture.

STEP 3
Pour over 1000g passata or half our basic tomato sauce recipe and 200ml hot beef stock. Then season.

STEP 4
Bring up to the boil, then simmer for 30 mins until the sauce looks rich.

STEP 5
Heat oven to 180C/fan/160C/gas 4 and lightly oil an ovenproof dish (about 30 x 20cm).

STEP 6
Spoon one third of the meat sauce into the dish, then cover with some fresh lasagne sheets from a 300g pack. Drizzle over roughly 130g ready-made or homemade white sauce.

STEP 7
Repeat until you have 3 layers of pasta.

STEP 8
Scatter 125g torn mozzarella over the top.

STEP 9
Arrange the rest of the prosciutto on top. Bake for 45 mins until the top is bubbling and lightly browned.
