We were going to be out all afternoon at friends so I decided to put something in the slow cooker (or crock pot) so that it would be ready when we got home.
I came up with lasagne and it tasted really good and was actually nicer than the ones I bake in the oven. I will definitely be doing this one again.
- Bolognaise sauce
- White sauce (Bechemal)
- Feta cheese
- Asian greens
- Lasagne sheets (I used dried ones)
I made up a bolognaise sauce using beef mince. I fried this up with some onion and capsicum. I always add Soy Sauce and Worcestershire sauce to my bolognaise, along with a pinch of salt and a couple tablespoons of beef stock. Then I added some tomato sauce. I normally add canned tomatoes but I have run out so sauce had to do.
Whilst the bolognaise was cooking I made an easy white sauce wtih milk and plain flour and whisked it until it thickened.
I left the bolgonaise sauce quite runny as I didn’t want it to dry out too much in the crock pot.
In the crock pot I put bolognaise sauce, then white sauce, then lasagne sheets. I repeated this until I added the final layer of lasagne sheets and then topped the whole thing with white sauce.
I didn’t put white sauce on the bottom as I thought this would burn.
I also scattered pieces of feta cheese and asian greens throughout all the layers.
I cooked it on low all day (approx 8 hours) and it was beautiful when we had it for tea.
