Everyone needs a lasagne recipe in their repertoire, and if you'll allow us to boast a little, we think our version of the classic is pretty much perfect. You'll layer rich beef ragù & cheesy béchamel sauce between lasagne sheets before baking till bubbling and golden. Serve with a fresh red gem wedge salad.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Classic Beef Lasagne

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Peel and finely slice the shallot[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced shallot with a generous pinch of salt and cook for 4 min or until softened

2 Classic Beef Lasagne

Meanwhile, top, tail, peel and finely dice the carrot[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

Boil a kettle

3 Classic Beef Lasagne

Once softened, add the beef mince to the shallot, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

Increase the heat to high and cook for 4 min or until browned and caramelised


4 Classic Beef Lasagne

Meanwhile, crumble the chestnut mushrooms into bite-sized pieces using your hands

Dissolve the beef stock cube[s], tomato paste, Henderson's Relish, dried oregano and a pinch of sugar in 300ml [600ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

Grate the cheddar cheese 


5 Classic Beef Lasagne

Once caramelised, add the diced carrot to the pan and cook for 2 min

Add the crumbled mushrooms and chopped garlic and cook for 1 min 

Add the tomato stock and cook for 5 min or until thickened to a ragù-like consistency

6 Classic Beef Lasagne

Meanwhile, melt 30g [60g] butter in a pot over a medium heat

Once melted, add 30g [60g] flour & stir with a wooden spoon for 1-2 min or until a sandy paste forms – this is your roux

Add 350ml [700ml] milk gradually & whisk for 5-8 min or until a smooth, thick sauce remains

Remove from the heat, season with salt & pepper and stir through the cheese – this is your béchamel

7 Classic Beef Lasagne

Layer some of the ragù over the bottom of an oven-proof dish, then top with 3 lasagne sheets

Repeat this process until you end up with a final layer of lasagne sheets 

Tip: you may need to layer differently depending on the size of your dish!

Top with the béchamel, ensuring all of the pasta is covered and cook in the oven for 30-35 min or until the pasta is cooked
