Steps

  • In a large pot, fry the mince until its nicely browned.
  • Remove from the pot and set aside.In the same pot, fry the onion, carrots, celery and garlic until soft and translucent.
  • Add the mince back to the pot along with the tomatoes, beef stock, bay, thyme and sugar.Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes, covered.Pre-heat the oven to 180c. Grease and line (with baking paper) a 6-hole jumbo muffin tray.
  • Combine all the white sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.Adjust the seasoning of the meat sauce.To make the lasagna cups, press 2 lasagna sheets into the prepared muffin tray.
  • Place a few spoonfuls of the meat sauce into the lasagna cup, followed by a bit of the white sauce.Top with grated mozzarella and place in the pre-heated oven.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbling and the exposed pasta has gone crispy (my favourite part).
  • Serve with salad and crusty bread.
