We hear it time and time again: “I want to be able to cook well, but it’s complicated and I just don’t have the time.” Well, it doesn’t have to be this way. Here I have one of the best recipes that is perfect for anyone willing to brave the kitchen, irrespective of skill! Lasagne is an extremely nostalgic dish and it is a perfect dinner idea; this recipe is heart-warming and takes you back to childhood, (which I get for some readers will be last night).


What is lasagne?

Lasagne is a layered pasta dish that originated in Italy in the Middle Ages.

Does it require beef as its filling?

No, you can actually replace the beef with a filling of chicken or vegetables. However, today, I will be covering how to make beef lasagne.

Do you have to use a specific type of cheese?

Not at all; you can use the cheese of your choice.


  • 900g of minced beef
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped 
  • Lasagne sheets
  • A jar of Dolmio white sauce
  • A jar of Dolmio tomato sauce
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Seasonings of your choice (for the beef)


Preheat oven to 180 degrees

Put a frying pan on the hob add oil and put it on high heat

Add your onions and garlic to your frying pan and fry them

Once your onions are fried, add your meat and seasonings of your choice

Cook your meat until it turns brown

When you notice your meat is brown, add your tomato sauce

Turn off the heat

Get a Pyrex dish and put your meat inside it

Put a lasagne sheet on top of your meat and put white sauce onto it

Repeat this process twice

Top off the last layer of meat with a lasagne sheet on it that has white sauce on it and put cheese on it (be generous with the cheese)

Put it in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes
