Gluten Free Lasagne – thanks to Tesco….

  • Gluten Free  Main Meal

With thanks to:Tesco

Serves 6    Prep 25     Cook for  1 hour 10 min

 

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 200°C, 180°C fan, 350°F, gas 4.

Place mince, onion and garlic in a pan and fry,

stirring until the beef is browned with no trace of pink.

Stir in the tomatoes, tomato puree, herbs, pepper and wine.

Bring to the boil and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile cook the lasagne in boiling salted water for 3 minutes,

until just pliable.

Drain, rinse in cold water and spread out on a work surface

in a single layer to prevent sticking.

For the sauce, bring the milk to the boil with the onion and bayleaf.

Take off the heat and leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes.

Strain the milk and place back in the pan with the butter and flour.

Whisking constantly, bring slowly to the boil and simmer for

5 minutes until thickened and smooth.

In an ovenproof dish, layer the meat mixture, lasagne and sauce.

End with the sauce and sprinkle with the cheese.

Cook in pre-heated oven for 30-40 minutes.

Cover with foil and leave to rest for 15 minutes before slicing,

so the layers hold their shape.

Meanwhile, lay the cherry tomatoes in a small roasting tin,
drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Roast for 20 minutes.   Serve the lasagne with the tomatoes and a watercress salad.
