Serves: 12
  • 1 package lasagna pasta (approx 9 rectangular sheets)
  • 700 gr mix of pork and beef
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 glass white wine
  • 1 cup tomato juice (or more, for your taste)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 100 ml sour cream (1/2 cup)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot
  • Bechamel sauce:
  • 700 ml milk (3 cups)
  • 4 tbsp flour ( or corn starch for gluten free)
  • 50 gr butter (1/2 stick)
  • salt and pepper, nutmeg (only if you like)
  • Dressing:
  • 450 gr mozzarella
  • ½ cup parmesan
  1. For the Ragu sauce:
  2. Chop the onion and shred the carrot. Saute the vegetables in 4 tbsp of oil. When the onion becomes translucent add the meat and stir until no lumps could be seen. Let it cook for about 10 minutes adding a bit of water once in a while (like ½ cup so it doesn't stick to the pan) Add all the spices and then tomato juice and tomato paste. Cover it with a lid and let it cook until meat becomes very tender. Stir occasionally. When it is cooked, add the wine and remove from the heat.
  3. Let it cool before adding sour cream. Set it aside and boil the pasta according to the package.
  4. Bechamel sauce:
  5. It is very well known sauce that you can easily make it at home from scratch. The heat has to be on low!
  6. In a medium stainless steel pot heat the butter until melted. Add the flour all at once, and stir energetically adding milk in the same time. Stir until no lumps seen. Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Let it boil until thickens a bit but stir constantly so it doesn's stick from the pan. Use it as fallows.
  7. Grease a pan with butter or cooking oil and place lasagna pasta then add ⅓ of the Ragu sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan and mozzarella and 3-4 tbsp of Bechamel sauce (white sauce). Repeat with the pasta until you have 3 layers of each. Keep more Bechamel sauce for the top. Sprinkle plenty of mozzarella on top as well and bake lasagna until becomes golden brown on top, for about 20-30 min.
  8. Serve it hot with a glass of white wine.
  9. Enjoy!
