From making the meaty Bolognese, stirring the cheesy sauce to assembling the layers, this recipe is a classic for the whole family to enjoy. We add nutritious spinach to ours for one of your five a day.
To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat and whisk in the flour until smooth, stirring continuously. Slowly whisk in the milk, stirring constantly. When all the milk has been added, bring to the boil, and continue to boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Turn the sauce down to a simmer and cook until the sauce is thick and coats the back of the spoon. Stir in the cheese, season with black pepper and nutmeg.
To assemble the lasagne, spoon one third of the meat into the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half the lasagne sheets, another third of the meat, half the spinach, and half the cheese sauce. Add the remaining lasagne sheets then the rest of the meat, spinach and cheese sauce. Sprinkle the mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese on top. Place the dish on a baking tray and bake for 45-55 minutes.
Our mini meatballs are made with only the finest beef mince and have a tender texture, which is perfect for little ones who are learning to chew. These flavour-packed meatballs are served on short spaghetti, so they're easy to eat, with a tasty tomato sauce. This is Hillary's eldest son Monty's absolute favourite meal. He has been known to demolish a plateful in minutes and was very specific about the recipe!
