Layering the Lasagne

  • 1. Place some of the Lasagne in the base of the tin, and cover with half the meat sauce. Arrange another layer of Lasagne and a layer of chesse. Sauce. Repeat again with the remaining lasagna as the top layer. Pour over the remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese and sprinkle the dried basil.
  • 2. Cover with foil for the first 20 mins then remove foil for remaining cooking time to brown the cheese.
