Directions

This is like making Lasagne using dry pasta sheets, but using fresh ones gives an even better taste. Lasagne is one of my favourite pasta dishes, so I enjoyed making this and of course, eating it too!
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot
  2. Add the onion, garlic and ginger. Leave them to cook until there's a visible colour change
  3. Add the minced meat, and continue to heat over medium heat, until the meat has dried and cooked
  4. Add the salt, black pepper, cinnamon, garam masala, paprika and chilli powder and mix well
  5. Add the mushrooms and bell pepper, mixing well into the mixture before adding the tomato puree. Continue to stir accordingly
  6. Add the chopped tomato, sweetcorn, oregano, mint, basil, mixed herbs, chicken stock cube and pomegranate sauce. Mix well and leave on the heat to boil for at least 10 mins
  7. Add the cream cheese with the fresh basil leaves. Leave for a few minutes
  8. Using a deep oven dish, add a little of the tomato sauce to the base of the dish, then add a layer of the lasagna sheets. Follow on by adding a layer of tomato sauce, adding some mozarella and cheddar cheese before adding the next layer of lasagna sheets
  9. Repeat until the final layer, whereby you end it with tomato sauce and more cheese. Add basil leaves as a design on top if you wish
  10. Place into a hot oven at 210 degrees Celsius for 15-20 mins, or until the top layer has browned

Alternatively, you can add white sauce, but this is lovely and easy as it is! So delicious mashAllah, enjoy! :)
