Ingredients

  • 1 9 oz. box, oven ready lasagne
  • 1 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 3 oz. 1/2 can tomato paste
  • 1 medium yellow onion minced
  • 1 14 oz. can diced tomato
  • 1 14 oz can, chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups fresh milk
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Prepare the meat sauce by heating the oil in a pan.
  • Once the oil is hot, saute the onion until it turns soft.
  • Add the ground beef and cook until it browns.
  • Pour-in the diced tomatoes. Let boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste. Stir and cook until the sauce thickens.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. set the meat sauce aside.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the mornay sauce by melting the butter in a saucepan.
  • Once the butter melts, gradually add the flour. Stir and cook in low to medium heat until the flour absorbs the butter (around 2 minutes).
  • Pour the milk in the sauce pan. Stir to dilute the flour and butter.
  • Add Parmesan cheese. Stir and cook until the sauce thickens. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • At this point, we have the meat sauce and mornay sauce ready. Assemble the lasagne by arranging the lasagne pieces in a baking pan. Line the oven-ready lasagne at the bottom of the pan. Top the first layer with 1/3 of the meat sauce. Top the meat sauce with spinach. Pour a quarter (1/4) of the mornay sauce over the spinach and spread until the entire pan is covered. Do this step 2 times more so that you will have 3 layers in the pan.
  • Top the last layer with lasagne pieces then pour and spread the remaining mornay sauce on top. Sprinkle sharp cheddar cheese on top.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. Serve.
