Put minced meat into a large and deep bowl. Add salt and pepper. Mix everything well
Wash the tomatoes. Boil water and place the tomatoes in it for about 1-2 minutes. Take the tomatoes from the boiled water and peel them. Grate the vegetable and blend it well to get tomato puree
Wash and peel the onions. Chop them and fry on oil in a frying pan. Keep frying the onions until the pieces become transparent
Wash and peel the carrots. Grate them and add to the onions. Mix the vegetables and keep frying them for about 3 minutes. Add minced meat and fry for 20 minutes more until the meat is ready. As soon as you are done with the meat, add tomato puree. Mix everything well and keep frying for about 5-10 minutes. That’s it! The topping for your lasagna is ready!
Now, let’s cook the Béchamel sauce. Take a pot and melt butter in it. Add flour and fry the mixture until it becomes cream coloured
Add milk to the mass and stir the sauce well. Keep boiling the sauce until it becomes dense. Stir it every 2-3 minutes to make it smooth
Take the first lasagna sheet, cover it with half of meat and pour several spoons of béchamel sauce. Grate the hard cheese and dredge the first layer. Cover the first sheet with the second one and repeat the steps you have just made. Then put the last lasagna sheet, cover it with the sauce and dredge with the rest of cheese. Bake in the pre-heated to 180 degrees oven for about 40 minutes. Take your lasagna from the oven, grate Parmesan cheese and dredge the dish with it. Place your lasagna back into the oven for 5 more minutes. That’s it! Your traditional Italian Lasagna is now ready! Bon appétit!
