Everyday cheats lasagne (GF option)

For those of you that wonder if my kids eat most of the things I post on this blog, the answer is a resounding NO! I know that probably means that I have failed along the way in my parenting but none the less my boys are very simple eaters and are happy with a variation of mince as many nights as I’ll let them. I make large batches of mince and then use it for mince and pasta, burritos, nachos, tacos and lasagne. Lasagne is such a process to make ‘properly’ (beschemal sauce and all) that I very rarely do unless it’s for a gift as it’s such an act of love. Here is my cheats version that I am currently making weekly as my oldest boy takes a piece heated up in a thermos for lunch most days.

Annabel’s cheats lasagne

  • Mince  – this is the link to by basic mince/bolognaise recipe
  • Cottage cheese
  • Grated tasty/other cheese
  • parmesan cheese – grated.
  • GF (or not) lasagne sheets
  1. Spoon a think layer of mince into the bottom of your lasange dish.
  2. Layer with lasange sheets.
  3. Spread lasagne sheets with cottage cheese and a light sprinkle of grated cheeses.
  4. Spoon a thicker layer of mince and repeat with lasgne sheets, cheeses and mince until the dish is full.  Top layer should be a generous covering of mixed grated cheeses but not cottage cheese.
  5. Bake in oven at 180C/350F for about 30 mins.
