How to layer a lasagne…

The trick to creating a structurally sound bake is all in the layering. Make sure you have all three elements laid out in front of you before you start:

The bolognese sauce.

The béchamel sauce.

The pasta sheets.

  1. First, spread an even layer of bolognese sauce over the base of an oven-proof dish.
  2. Then, place a single layer of pasta sheets on top. You may need to break up some of the sheets into smaller pieces to ensure they fit.
  3. Next, spread over a layer of the white sauce (or béchamel) and repeat the process until both sauces are used up.
  4. Finish with a layer of bolognese or white sauce – whichever you have left – and sprinkle with cheese (we like parmesan and cheddar).

Tip: take care not to be too generous with each layer of sauce, or you’ll end up with a sloppy mess when you try to serve it.
