Today, my eldest daughter Zu tried her hands on making her first homemade 'Lasagna'.
To me, the ingredients are expensive. As you can see in the photo here making just THAT amount of my pyrex container cost RM35. Now if I ordered one plate of Lasagna at Coffeebean it would only cost me RM18 not including tax. Anyway, like Noormy have said, Zu's lasagna was more tasty than the one she ate at Coffeebean. She said the one she ate there was more taste of 'sauce' in it.
Eating my share of Zu's homemade Lasagna
To make the lasagna sauce,
Saute grounded 2 garlics, 1 red onion in some cooking oil in a pan
Next pour in a packet of Boulevard minced beef
Add in a packet of Maggi Bologne Spaghetti Sauce
Pour in a tin of mushrooms which can be sliced thinly
Add some water to dilute
Add in some tomato sauce
Salt & ajinomoto to taste
Keep stirring the ingredients until well cooked.
Keep aside to cool.
The Cooked Lasagna Sauce
Place a layer of already boiled lasagna pasta sheet in a pyrex or any rectangular container. Pour in and spread a layer of the lasagna sauce with a spoon
If you have a lot of mozarella cheese, scrap some over the sauce. After that put on another layer of boiled lasagna pasta sheet over the cheese and add, spread another layer of the lasagna sauce. Continue doing so until 4 layers of the boiled lasagna sheets are done before leaving a layer of shredded mozarella cheese over it.
The Lasagna before going into the oven. Bake for 45 minutes at 170 degrees temperature.
BTW, besides Lasagna, Zu cooked Roasted Chicken too. This is pretty simple. Clean one whole chicken. Marinate it with grounded ginger, some tumeric powder, salt and ajinomoto to taste for an hour. Bake in oven for 90 minutes at 180 degrees temperature.
Walaaa... a Roasted Chicken so yummy to eat with blended red chillies.
Hope it's not too late to wish you all a Happy New Year!
