Ingredients:

  • 6 Whole Wheat Lasagna Sheets (105g)
  • 2 Onions (Chopped Finely)
  • 400 g Lean Minced Beef
  • 4 Carrots (Diced)
  • 400 g Can of Chopped Tomatoes

  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 2 Tsp Vegetable Bouillon
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (Chopped)
  • 2 Tsp Rapeseed Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Thyme Leaves (Fresh)

For the sauce:

  • 400 ml Whole Milk
  • 50 g Wholemeal Flour
  • 15 g Grated Parmesan
  • Generous Grating of Nutmeg
  • 1 Bay Leaf

Instructions:

Take a large skillet/pan and heat some oil in it. Add the chopped onions, celery, carrots and garlic and cook for 5 to 10 minutes by frequently stirring all the ingredients until they are softened and cooked. Add the meat, while mixing it with a wooden spoon and cook until it’s brown. Pour in the canned tomatoes and a quarter of that can with water, the tomato puree, bouillon and the balsamic vinegar. Add in the thyme and black pepper. Let it cook for 5 more minutes.

Take half of the mixture from the pan and put it as the first layer in the slow cooker. Then add on top some lasagna sheets, until the meat mixture is covered. Add on top of the lasagna sheets the rest of the meat and again another layer with the lasagna. Cover the slow cooker and let it cook on low while we start preparing the sauce.

Add the milk and flour into a pan. Then add the bay leaf, nutmeg and let it cook on low, while whisking it frequently until it becomes a thick mixture. Leave it for a few minutes so the flour is cooked. Remove the bay leaf and then add the parmesan cheese. The sauce is now done so pour it in the lasagna we have in the crock pot. Spread it carefully and then let it cook for another 3 hours. You should know it’s done when the meat is cooked and the lasagna sheets are tender.
