Tall ships (porthole)

Beef lasagne

And now for something completely different!

I had a try at making lasagne the other day based off a recipe on a packet of the stuff (Sainsbury's egg lasagne), and it came out quite well. So well in fact that I'm making another batch right now.

I'll start off with posting the original recipe, as Sainsbury's now print a different more complicated one. The really nice thing about this recipe is it doesn't need any fancy sauces. The only bit I had to go and buy specially was the ricotta - the rest is all stuff I tend to have anyway.

I made a few changes to mine. To begin with I halved all the ingredients as that way the lasagne fits a nice little deep ceramic dish I've got. I added a dash of Worcester sauce to the meat, and used garlic powder rather than cloves because that's what's in my cupboard. Finally I didn't bother greasing the dish, though being glazed ceramic the lasagne came out of it easily enough.

The result is two servings of lasagne - one for now, and one to go in the fridge to be eaten in the next day or two. Plus enough ingredients left over to make another batch a few days later!
