Instructions

1

• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. • Finely chop garlic. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over high heat. • Cook beef mince, diced bacon and soffritto mix, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 5-6 minutes.

• To mince, add garlic and tomato & herb seasoning and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Reduce heat to medium and stir in diced tomatoes with garlic & onion, chicken-style stock powder, the brown sugar and the water, until slightly reduced, 2-3 minutes. Season with pepper.

TIP: For best results, drain the oil from the pan before adding the spice blend!

• In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the plain flour and cook, stirring, until a thick paste forms, 1-2 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium-low, then slowly whisk in light cooking cream and the milk until smooth. Simmer, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. • Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese.

• Spoon roughly one quarter of the beef filling into a baking dish, then top with a fresh lasagne sheet. Repeat with remaining filling and lasagne sheets. • Finish with a final lasagne sheet, then pour over the white sauce. Sprinkle over Cheddar cheese. • Bake until golden, 20-25 minutes.

• When lasagne has 10 minutes remaining, trim and roughly chop baby broccoli. • Wipe out frying pan and return to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. • Cook baby broccoli, tossing, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Season to taste.

• Divide beef and bacon lasagne between plates. • Cut off one corner of the basil pesto packet and draw a fun face on the lasagne. • Assemble baby broccoli as hair and flaked almonds as teeth for the monster. Enjoy! Little cooks: Let the kids make their own faces at the table.
