Creamy Lasagna

To get out of the usual baked macaroni or baked spaghetti. Mommy and I made lasagna last Sunday. Mommy cooked the sauce while I do the cream sauce for filling and topping.

This is best paired with garlic bread.

Creamy and Cheesy Lasagna


You will need:
1 pack of lasagna noodles (about 400 grams)

For the meat sauce:
¼ kilo ground beef
1 large pack (good for 1 kilo) UFC Filipino Style Spaghetti Sauce
¼ kilo hotdog, cut into cubes
1 medium sized carrot, grated
1 medium sized onion, mined
4 gloves garlic, minced
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 can button mushroom, chopped
½ cup grated cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

For the cream sauce:
¼ cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup grated cheese
½ cup all purpose cream
½ cup evaporated milk
salt to taste

Here’s how to do it:
Cook lasagna noodles according to packaging instruction.

For the meat sauce: Sauté garlic, onion and ground beef. When the reddish color of the beef disappears, add hotdogs, bell pepper and button mushroom. Add UFC Filipino Style Spaghetti Sauce. Add 1-2 cups of water and bring to boil. Once started to boil, lower the heat and add grated carrots and cheese. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Set aside.

For the creamy-cheese sauce: Melt butter then add all-purpose flour. This will turn into paste-like consistency. Cooked the flour until light brown then slowly add 3-4 cups water. With continuous stirring, wait until started to boil then lower the heat. Add all-purpose flour, evaporated milk, grated cheese and salt. Simmer for about 5 minutes with continuous stirring.

In an aluminum pan (about 6 x 8), spread meat sauce at the bottom. Arrange lasagna noodles to cover the bottom of the pan. Spread about 1/3 of the meat sauce, place another layer of lasagna noodles, then cover with 1/3 part of the creamy-cheese sauce. Place another layer of lasagna noodles-meat sauce-lasagna noodles-creamy cheese sauce-lasgana noodles. Pour the remaining 1/3 portion of meat sauce and place the remaining creamy cheese sauce.

In a 175ºF pre-heated oven, bake for about 30-40 minutes.

Serve with garlic bread on the side.

Tip/s: it is better to make the sauces a bit salty. The saltiness will be balanced or neutralized by the pasta.
