CROCK POT LASAGNE

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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.
