Ingredients

  • 450g lean beef mince
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped or 8 tablespoons ready prepared diced onions
  • 75g fresh or frozen diced prepared mixed vegetables
  • For the Bolognese sauce:

  • 1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes with herbs
  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup or purée
  • 2 tablespoons garlic purée, or to taste
  • Pinch sugar
  • For the cheese sauce:

  • 1 x 470g jar (approx) prepared cheese sauce (chilled tubs are good too)
  • 50g grated hard cheese. e.g Cheddar
  • 4-6 corn tortillas or wraps

Method

  1. To prepare the Bolognese sauce; place all the sauce ingredients in a large pan, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan and dry fry the mince in batches for 5-7 minutes, breaking up any lumps with the back of a spoon. Add the onions and vegetables and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir the sauce into the mince, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220°C, 425°F, Gas Mark 7. Spoon half the Bolognese mixture in the base of a 25cm square ovenproof dish. Cover with a layer of tortillas or wraps then repeat the method. Top with an even layer of cheese sauce, sprinkle with the cheese and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Serve with mixed salad and garlic bread.

Tips:

As an alternative, if preferred, replace the corn tortillas or wraps with fresh or no cook lasagne sheets and cook at 190°C, 375°F, Gas Mark 5 for 20 minutes.
