Ingredients:

  • 200g of Pasta sheets or however many you need to cover your dish twice

  • 380ml milk
  • 50g butter
  • 50g flour

Method:

Firstly put the sheets of pasta in a pan of boiling water with a dash of olive oil in (this helps the pasta not to stick) and simmer for around 10 – 15 minutes until soft.

Fry the chopped onion and mushrooms for a few minutes until they have gone limp and then add the mince cooking until browned.

Add the tomatoes and garlic and chilli ( if required)

While this is all cooking, make the béchamel sauce.

Pour the milk in a pan and warm, place the butter in another pan and melt adding the flour and mixing until smooth.

Add the milk using a whisk all the time until it goes thicker.

Add the salt & pepper at this stage and remove from the heat.

Remove the pasta and place it on a clean tea towel to dry then layer on the bottom of the dish.

Cover with half of the meat and then spoon over half of the béchamel sauce.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese (or similar) over the top.

Repeat the process
