Easy Lasagne Recipe

  • Sharebar

One of the recipes that I love to follow when the weather is cold and I feel lazy is a good Lasagne. I have only started to make lasagne after I moved to Australia, simply because I always thought it to be something too rich and filling to cook for 2 people. But during the cold winter months here, one can really eat more than usual! :) So I scouted around for recipe and after some trial and error, came up with my own modification of a quick and simple lasagne recipe. I love this recipe because I only need to spend about 20 minutes preparing and cooking the ingredients, then chuck it into the oven and let the house be filled with the glorious smell of cheese! I can even use the time while it is in the oven to take a good long shower and food will be ready right after that. :)

    Wow 20 mins is super fast! My beef mince alone take more than 1 hour. Hahaha but I love lasagna, just that I hardly get any craving for it in KL though.

    Well we get ready-made beef mince over here, so that saves up a lot of prep time! :) Yes I find that I didn’t have cravings for lasagne back in KL too, perhaps it’s really the weather effect.
