Directions

  1. To make the mince mix, heat the oil in a medium sized pot and cook the onions until soft.
  2. If you are using real mince, stir it in and cook for five minutes before adding everything else. If you use quorn, simple add the rest of the ingredient at the same time. Stir and leave to simmer while you make the cheese sauce.
  3. In a smaller pot, heat the oil and stir in the flour. Slowly add the milk, whisking to avoid it clumping.
  4. Finally add the cheese, seasoning and bay leaves. Stir and let thicken.
  5. Oil your lasagna dish, and put a thin layer of mince in the base. Top with lasagna sheets. Anther layer of mince with cheese sauce. Top with lasagna sheets. Anther layer of mince with cheese sauce. Top with lasagna sheets. Now a final layer of cheese sauce toped with the reserved chees. Bake in the oven for around 45minutes, until golden and bubbling.
