It’s easy to convince them to try because they look just like a meat lollypop!

Drumsticks are an affordable meat option and they taste really good when they are covered in BBQ sauce and baked!

Lasagna

1 onion

1 red capsicum

1 green capsicum

4 garlic cloves

600 grams of mince

Mozerella cheese

4 table spoons of tomato paste

2 stock cubes

1 cup of water

1 pack of lasagna sheets

Bechamel sauce

INGREDIENTS

60g butter, chopped

1/3 cup plain flour

4 1/2 cups milk

75g parmesan cheese, finely grated

1/4 teaspoon salt

good pinch ground nutmeg

Method

Saute onion, garlic, capsicum in a medium heated pan

When it has softened add in your meat and stir well. When the meat is browned add in your tomato paste, crush up some stock cubes and sprinkle over and about 3 table spoons of mixed herbs over as well. Add in your 1 cup of water and turn the heat down to a low setting. Let simmer away for 40 minutes till you have a semi thick consistency. Season well with salt and pepper

In this time make your béchamel sauce and put it aside for when your bolognaise sauce done.

I normally layer my lasagna with mince first, bechamel sauce ( leave a lot for the end as well) and then your lasagna sheets (crack them when you layer as well.. It helps it to cooker better) add in some mozzarella and then repeat the layers till you’re at top. This recipe won’t make many layers unless you have a small pan.

When this is done. Make sure you have a good amount of bechamel sauce left as this will be your top. Sprinkle over with mozzarella and spring onions as well as some parsley.

Cook in a 160 degree oven for about 1 hour or till you have a golden brown top. Remove from heat and cover with aluminum foil and let sit for 1 hour or so. Or overnight.

Reheat and serve with either steamed vegetables or salad and chips.
