Chef's Notes

  • To make a meat based Lasagne, just add 400gms of minced chicken/beef immediately after sauteeing the chopped onions and cook for 5 minutes until cooked. Then continue with the following process.
  • The vegetables used for the Lasagne are interchangeable. Thus any of the vegetables can be omited or replaced. The carrots however, adds a natural sweetness to the dish.
