12 servings


What do I need?

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 175g beef mince
  • ¼ cup finely chopped brown onion
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp fresh chopped basil, plus extra for serving
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 400g ricotta
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, plus more for serving
  • 2 ½ cups mozzarella, grated
  • ¾ cup parmesan, grated
  • 12 uncooked fresh lasagne noodles or cut lasagne sheets in half lengthways to form a long rectangle

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil into a large frying pan. Heat over medium-high heat, add beef mince and onion and cook until meat is browned.
  3. Add crushed tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano and 1 tablespoon olive oil and stir. Season with salt and pepper and cover with a lid and leave to simmer.
  4. Place lasagne noodles in a large pot of boiling water for 45 seconds to 1 minute to soften slightly. The lasagne needs to be soft enough to roll.
  5. Drain lasagne. Line a baking tray with baking paper and give the paper a light spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place each piece of lasagne on the paper, lined up in a row.
  6. Stir together ricotta, egg, salt and pepper with a fork until well combined. Add chopped parsley, 2 cups mozzarella and ½ cup parmesan and mix well.
  7. Spread 1/3 cup of meat mixture into the bottom of a baking dish.
  8. Spread a thin layer of the ricotta mix over each lasagne noodle and then spread a heaped tablespoon of the meat sauce along the top of the cheese.
  9. Starting at the short end roll the lasagne to form a roll-up. Repeat for each piece. Arrange pieces seam-side down on top of the meat mixture in the baking dish. Cover lasagne roll-ups with any remaining meat mixture and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and parmesan.
  10. Bake in oven for 30 minutes and then serve.
