Eatlean Spreadable – Our most versatile product, use our Spreadable as the key ingredient to make the perfect white sauce. Here we just loosened the sauce with a little skimmed milk to create a delicious, runny, gooey lasagne sauce ready to pour all over your dish.
500g Mince Beef (5% fat)
1 Celery Stick
1 Beef Oxo Cube
1 Tin Chopped Tomatoes
100 ml Skimmed Milk
Add the onion, carrots & celery to frying pan, spray with frylight and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the mince meat and the peppers and stir until browned, draining any excess liquid from the meat.
Add the oxo cube and stir, and then follow with the tomato puree, tinned tomatoes and 150ml of water, then cook through for 20 minutes.
In a saucepan add two tubs of Eatlean Spreadable Protein Cheese, along with 100ml of skimmed milk. Heat until the mixture is fully melted.
Take your lasagne dish and layer a thin layer of the mince mixture on the bottom, top with lasagne sheets and then the Spreadable Protein Cheese sauce, just enough to cover the lasagne sheet. Repeat until all of the mince mixture is used, and finish with lasagne and a layer of Spreadable Protein Cheese sauce on top.
Add the Grated Protein Cheese to the top and then pop into the oven at 200 degrees for 20-30 minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbling.
