Today’s bento is leftover home-made Lasagne with a peanut butter sandwich, topped with a cheese character holding a bunch of heart shaped balloons. (for the cheese colouring tutorial, click here). If you look closely, you will see Daffy Duck in the lasagne topping – spooky – I didn’t put him there ! LOL 😀
The apple is the other half of the one I used yesterday to make the ZigZag Apple
You could probably eat the lasagne cold, (I have been pleasantly surprised to find a lot of typically hot foods do actually still taste good cold) but I will lift this piece out and warm it up in the microwave before serving – I just don’t fancy it cold! 😀
Quick Lasagne Recipe:
Bolognaise sauce (Minced beef, 2 tins chopped tomatoes, 1 onion)
Cheesy white sauce (2 tablespoons margarine, 2 tablespoons plain flour, smi-skimmed milk, handful of grated cheese)
Lasagne pasta sheets
Let the lasagne sheets soak in some water
Make the bolognaise sauce by cooking the meat and onions and adding the tomatoes, stir and simmer
Make the cheesy white sauce by melting the marg in a pan and stirring the flour in and keep stirring it the whole time, adding milk very gradually so you don’t get lumps. Add the cheese and keep stirring. Add more milk if you would like the sauce to be runnier.
Put some of the bolognaise meat sauce into a pyrex glass or oven proof dish, then some lasagne sheets, then the cheese sauce, then the bolognaise sauce, pasta, cheese sauce etc, keep repeating until you can finish with a cheese sauce layer then sprinkle a little grated cheese on top. If you have used all the grated cheese up in the sauce (like I did!) you can tear strips/pieces from a cheese slice and arrange these on top. Then bake in the oven for 30 mins and voila! Your own home made lasagne!
