Sempoi Lasagne - K Ati's recipe :)

My family lurrveesss lasagne, getting this recipe from a friend, K Ati @ Hariati Jamaludin is just wonderful. Going to make it after this, just couldn;t wait to share the recipe first. will upload the pic later :)

*do not freak out when you read as there's a number of items in the ingredients hehe .. but truly its simple to make .. x worries :)

1 box San Reno instant lasagne slices
1 packet grated Mozzarella cheese for topping

Beef sauce
800 gm mince meat
Olive oil
2 packets of Maggi Bolognese mix (She likes to add this one cos it thickens the sauce..)
1 large bottle of pasta sauce (Dolmio / Preggo /Lego)
4 big onions (finely chopped)
2 whole garlic (finely chopped)
1 can button mushroom (finely chopped)
Tomato sauce / puree
Ground black & white pepper
Dried oregano leaves (finely chopped)
Sugar and salt to taste

- In a large pan / wok , fry off the chopped garlic and onion in a cup of olive oil, until nicely brown.
- Add the mince beef, seasoned with pepper, stri until its cooked.
- Add the pasta sauce, Bolognese mix, tomato puree, mushroom, oregano, pepper
- cook until it simmers or the sauce thickens. Add water if necessary until it reduces into a nice and thick gravy.
- Add salt and sugar to taste (3 to 4 heaps for a start and adjust accordingly)

White cheese sauce

5 tbsp flour
2 tbsp butter
1 carton of fresh milk
1 cup of water
2 cheddar cheese slice
Salt & pepper to taste

- Add flour and fresh milk + water on the side and strain so that it doesn’t clot together .
- Melt butter in a deep pan and add the flour mix into the pan, stirring all the time
- Add cheese , salt and pepper to taste.
- Keep stirring consistently on low heat so until the sauce thickens (ala cabonara sauce!!)

Sequence of layer..

1. Beef sauce
2. Lasagne The 1st sequence is purposely different from the rest ….
3. Beef sauce
4. White sauce
5. Lasagne
6. Beef sauce
7. White sauce
8. Lasagne
9. Beef sauce
10. White sauce (to end)
11. Finally to drizzle with mozzarella cheese to cover the top!!

Bake in the oven about one hour until it is nicely brown (not too brown though , or it'll be too crusty!). Ideally, you should do it in the morning if you want to eat it late afternoon (3-5pm) so that it is still warm and nicely set. It will be too runny if you serve them immediately after cook…

Tip : If you do it one day in advance, cut the lasagna (when it is cool) so that it fits nicely in plastic containers and store in the fridge (or freeze it). Heat up in the microwave before serving.

Happy trying ... :)

Wallahhhh!!! Bon Appetit!!
