Easy Lasagne Bake
I thought I would share with you the easiest lasagne I have made in a while.
It came to me as I was preparing Shepherds Pie which is a family favourite. Also, it made the list because San Remo Cold Pasta was on special for $3 a pack at the supermarket so I bought two and froze one box.
What you'll need:
1x 375gm pkt of San Remo Parpadelle pasta (from the cold food section, not the hard stuff)
600gm mince beef
1/2 brown onion
1 jar of Dolmio Extra Pasta sauce (I used the Extra Garlic)
1 cup of chopped mushroom (or less)
1 cup of chopped zucchini (if you have it on hand, or any other vegetable mix)
1 x 400gm tin of diced tomatoes
* Optional: 6 potatoes for the mash topping and 1 cup of cheese for melting on top.
Basically you cook your mince with some onion and then add your vegies and then sauce. Simmer for about 5mins and season to taste by adding salt/sugar. At the same time you'll want to be boiling a pot of water for your pasta. Dunk the pasta in for about 5minutes or more if you like it softer.
Once pasta is cooked, drain the water and add pasta to your sauce mix. Pour it onto a baking tray and top with your mashed potato and cheese. Bake it in the oven at 200deg for 15mins and then take it out to cool down. Serve with a salad and enjoy your healthy dinner!
I must say that my kids are fussy eaters and they quite enjoyed this version of my lasagne. I'm going to try an Alfredo next.
