Instructions

1

• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Grate carrot. Slice courgette into rounds. Finely chop onion (see ingredients). • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook diced bacon and beef mince, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 4-5 minutes.

Little cooks: Under adult supervision, older kids can help grate the carrot.

• Add carrot, courgette and onion to the frying pan and cook until tender, 7-8 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium, then add Nan's special seasoning and passata (see ingredients) and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. • Add the brown sugar and water. Stir to combine and cook until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. • Remove from heat. Season with pepper.

• While the filling is cooking, heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter and plain flour and cook, stirring, until a thin paste forms, 1 minute. • Slowly whisk in the milk and cook, stirring, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove pan from heat, then stir through half the grated Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

• Slice fresh lasagne sheet in half widthways. • Spoon half the filling into a baking dish, then top with a layer of lasagne sheets (lay two sheets alongside each other for 4 people). Follow with a layer of cheesy béchamel sauce. • Repeat with the remaining filling, lasagne sheets and béchamel sauce. Sprinkle over remaining Parmesan cheese. • Bake lasagne until golden, 20-25 minutes.

Little cooks: Add the finishing touch and sprinkle over the cheese.
