Easy Homemade Lasagne Recipe = Perfect Family Comfort Food

I am going to show you how to make the MOST AMAZING homemade lasagne. Including my quick and easy beef ragu that tastes fantastic and saves you time.

A delicious homemade lasagne with rich beef ragu, creamy béchamel sauce and golden cheese topping. A family comfort food classic.

One hour from start-to-finish (and half of that’s in the oven) and you can be serving up a big meaty-cheesy dish of lasagne, with enough for second helpings. Because we all want second helpings when it comes to lasagne right?

The full lasagne recipe is on our site:

Meat Sauce/Ragu:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion peeled and finely diced
2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
1 carrot peeled and finely diced
3 chestnut (brown) mushrooms finely diced
1 pound (500g) minced beef (ground beef) 12-20% fat, don’t go for the really lean stuff, it’s too dry
3 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 beef stock cube crumbled
28 oz (2 x 400g) canned chopped tomatoes
½ tbsp light brown sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper

Béchamel Sauce:
4 tbsp butter salted or unsalted is fine
4 tbsp plain/all-purpose flour
3 cups (720ml) full fat milk
1 pinch salt and pepper
1 packed cup (100g) cheddar cheese grated
pinch of nutmeg optional
50 g mozzarella grated or chopped finely
50 g strong cheddar grated

12 sheets of dried lasagne the kind you don’t need to pre-cook
1 3/4 cups (175g) mixed grated cheese. I use a combination of regular cheddar, red cheddar and mozzarella
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
