Lasagna is an Italian Baked Pasta dish flavoured mainly with oregano and basil leaves. An easy to make delicacy and is such a popular dish. Kids love this dish because of the less spiciness and cheesiness of this recipe. Here i have provided a very simple recipe to make this preparation.

       Here i am not using White sauce, you can use if you like more creaminess in this dish.(Refer here if you are planning to use). Mainly four ingredients Meat, Pasta Sauce, Lasagna sheets and Cheese have been used here. You can make it very quick a treat dish.Vegetarians replace Soya granules instead of Minced meat and follow the same instructions.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes   Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Category: Carbohydrates/ Pasta Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4


Lasagna sheets- 6
Minced Lamb/ Mutton/ Beef- 500 grams (Soya granules- 200gms vegertarians)
Onion, chopped- 1 big
Garlic, chopped- 2 cloves
Dried Basil leaves- 1/4 teaspoon
Pepper powder- 1/2 teaspoon
*Pasta Sauce- 5 tablespoons
White sauce- 5 tablespoons(optional)(Here i have not used)
Mozerella Cheese- 200 grams
Parmesan cheese- 100 grams (optional)
Oil- 2 teaspoons
*Blanched Tomato puree can be replaced for pasta sauce with the addition of dried or fresh basil leaves.


  • Heat lots of water in a pot and add a teaspoon of oil and salt.
  • When the water starts to boil add the lasagna pasta sheets. Cook till soft for about 5 minutes.(Follow the packet Instructions)
  • Rinse the pasta with cool water to stop the cooking process.
  • Grate Parmesan and mix it with grated Mozerella Cheese; Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions till translucent; then add the garlic and cook till the flavour arises.
  • Now add the Lamb mince and salt; cook on high flame to roast the meat for a minute. (You can add some meat stock 250ml also if you like while cooking to make it more rich in taste at this stage. I have not used)
  • Now add pepper powder and basil leaves, cook till the meat is done for about 5 minutes. If little cooked water is there also it is fine.
  • Now switch off the gas and mix the Pasta sauce/ Blanched Tomato puree with it.
  • If you like to make it rich prepare some Bechamel Sauce (White Sauce) now.
  • In a baking tray arrange the pasta sheets then spread the prepared lamb mixture.
  • Then add White sauce if you are planning to add then sprinkle Cheese on top.
  • Cover with another layer of pasta sheets and repeat the process till you finish the mixture.
  • I have prepared double layer using the above mentioned quantity in 20 x 20 cm square baking tray.
  • If you are baking in 30 x 20 cm tray, you require around 10 pasta sheets.
  • Preheat the oven to 180oC.
  • Cover the baking tray with aluminium foil and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Unwrap the tray and allow to cool 10 minutes before serving. If you serve hot the layers may tear while lifting.
  • Note: Cook Pasta sheets prior to layering. Otherwise it may tend to stick together. So be careful.
  • Pasta sauce can be replaced by blanched tomato puree of equal quantity mentioned.
  • If you like golden crust on top, add cheese on top of last layer of pasta sheet. Cook 15 minutes covered and then leave the tray uncovered for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Vegetarians prepare same version using Soya granules or prepare Vegetarian Lasagna using combination of vegetables, mushroom and soya granules.
