This is one of my favourite recipes for Lasagna, I’ve tweaked it a fair bit from the original recipe so that it is cheaper and healthier. It’s very easy to prepare and easily will serve 4-6 people with leftovers for the next day….and trust me, the leftovers always taste better.
Finely chop the onion, carrot and zucchini, once that’s completed heat the olive oil in a medium to large sauce pan or frying pan and add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is soft. Now add in the carrot and zucchini and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the vegetables are reasonably soft, make sure you keep stirring otherwise the carrots will stick. Crush the garlic with a garlic press and add to the pan, about a minute later you’re ready to add in the mince which will need to be cooked on the high heat until it’s well browned.
Once the mince is browned you can now add in the cans of crushed tomatoes, the beef stock, tomato paste and dried oregano. Stir well to combine all these ingredients, and bring the mixture to boil. Allow the mixture to boil for about a minute or 2 then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cover the sauce pan for about 20 minutes. Remember to give the mixture a stir every 4-5 minutes so it doesn’t stick.
Preheat your oven to 180 C
Now that the mixture in the sauce pan is ready it’s time to start assembling the lasagna. Spread a little of the meat sauce into the base of a large-ish (23×30cm) oven proof dish. Arrange a layer of lasagna sheets in the dish, you can break them if they’re not the same size as your dish, then add a layer of the meat sauce over the top to cover it evenly. Cover with another layer of lasagna sheets, a layer of meat sauce, and then finally another layer of lasagna sheets.
Now we’re going to make the cheese sauce, time to concentrate!
Blend a little of the milk with the corn flour to make a smooth paste in a small sauce pan. Over a low heat add in the rest of the milk bit by bit, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens. Take the pan off of the heat and add in the grated cheese giving it a good stir while it’s melting. Once all the cheese is melted pour the cheese sauce mixture over the top of the lasagna and bake it in the oven for about an hour.
If you find the top browning too quickly put some aluminum foil over the top of it, remember to take it off with around 15 minutes to go so that the top browns up nice and evenly.
I like to serve it with a light salad of rocket leaves, red onion and feta cheese, with a couple of slices of garlic bread and maybe even a little bit of parmesan cheese grated finely on the top.Hope you give this recipe a try, and even more so I hope you enjoy it.

Step 6: Conclusions Now you're finished! A professional looking canvas at a very low cost. Here's a few notes that might help as well. If you are stretching a lot of paintings at once, it might be easier to cut all the wood at once but just make sure to keep the pieces together. If your painting is especially large then a cross brace or two may be necessary to create a strong frame. It is a matter of preference but generally if the painting is larger than 3 feet across then a cross brace would be a good idea. For this simply use a 1” x 2” strip cut square and staple it (on both sides of the frame) in the center. The should not be used for the brace pieces. Good luck with framing!

Step 5: Stretch the Canvas Now you are finally ready to stretch the canvas. To do this lay a piece of paper down on a clean surface, and then the painting face down. Line up the frame so that the molding is against the canvas. To stretch this pull one side of the canvas up and around and staple it in the center of that side. Next take the canvas pliers, stretch the canvas on the opposite side and staple in the center. Although this can be done alone, a second pair of hands might make this step a little easier. Flip the painting over and make sure that it lines up properly with the frame. If it does you can begin stapling the rest of these sides. On the one side of the sides with a staple in it, place two staples, approximately 2”-3” on either side of the center staple while stretching the canvas. Do the same on the opposite side of the painting. Continue to work your way outwards towards the corners, until there you are about 1” from the corner. Next repeat this process along the other two sides of the painting, stretching the canvas tight. When you have completed this you can fold the corners of the painting as you would a present and staple them to the strip in the back. It is a matter of preference if you want the folds on the top and bottom or sides of you painting but being consistent will make them look better.
