It is the perfect dish to gather your family or friends around the dinner table. This easy lasagne recipe makes around 8 portions, so it's an absolute crowd pleaser!

Add the celery and carrots, cook for a few minutes and then stir in the tomato paste. Cook for 2 more minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Give it a good stir and gently simmer for 2 hours. Remove the lid and cook for another half an hour until the sauce has thickened and the meat is tender.

Spoon about ⅓ of the meat sauce on the base of the dish and cover it with lasagna sheets. Brake them gently if necessary to fit in the dish.

Top with ⅓ of the béchamel sauce and spread it over the lasagna sheets. Repeat two more layers, and top the last layer of pasta with the rest of the béchamel.

Let the lasagna rest for 15 to 20 minutes to let the béchamel sauce set before slicing and serving.  Click 👇on "learn more" for the full recipe and step-by-step pictures.
