Recipe: Yummy Scrummy Lasgane






The kids all but do somersaults when I tell them it's lasagne for dinner! It is a bit of an indulgent recipe when I'm on Weight Watchers so we serve it with a salad. If me and the Hubby are not trying to lose weight we split it 4 ways instead for 15pp because it's so tasty and add a chunk of garlic bread! The smoky bacon adds an extra depth to the meal which is simply awesome!

Meat Sauce

1 tsb vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
1 pepper, diced
1/4 lb smoked back bacon, diced
1/2 lb lean beef mince
2 cloves of garlic
1 courgette, diced
6 mushrooms, diced
1 tin tomatoes
1/2 pint beef stock
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
Salt & Pepper

6 x dried lasagne sheets

The meat sauce is very simple, gently fry the onions and peppers in the oil until soft. Then add the bacon. After a few minutes add the mince and brown. Keeping the heat medium to low add the courgette and mushrooms and stir.

Once all the vegetables are softned and the meat is looking cooked add the tomatoes, stock and herbs. Bring to the boil and then simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally. Season to taste. Leave this to reduce until the sauce is think.

Cheese Sauce

2 1/2 tsb plain white flour
1/2 pint whole milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
salt & pepper
1/4lb cheddar cheese, grated.

In a small saucepan sift the flour and nutmeg together and the slowly add the milk, whisking the whole time. Then heat slowly, continuing to whisk, until the milk starts to thicken. Sprinkle in half the cheese and whisk until smooth.

The Layers

Spoon 2/3 of the meat into a lasagna dish / rectangluar oven proof dish. Layer on 3 of the lasagne sheets. Then spoon on the remaining meat sauce and half of the cheese sauce. Place the last layer of pasta, and pour over the rest of the cheese sauce. Use the back of a spoon to spread the sauce over the pasta and make sure it is all covered. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese.

Bake in the oven for 20 mins on a medium-high heat (I use GM 7)

You can leave this to bake later. From cold give it 25-30 mins on GM5

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
