This is a cheats, sometimes lasagne meal. I don’t like using products from a jar all the time, but sometimes we need the help of a cheat meal when the days get busy.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 jar Pasta sauce, flavour of your choice
  • 1 jar Bechemel sauce
  • 500gm Mince, beef, chicken, turkey...all fine
  • 1 cup Grated cheese
  • 1 box of lasagne sheets, instant or fresh
  • Extra Grated cheese for top


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Fry off the mince, add the jar of pasta sauce and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat bechemel sauce and stir through cheese until melted.
  3. Start with a layer of mince in a lasagne dish, then a layer of the bechemel, top with lasagne sheets. Continue until sauces are gone, ending with a mince then bechemel sauce and top with grated cheese.
  4. Bake for 30-40 mins until sheets are soft and top is golden brown. Serve with salad and garlic bread.


Great and filling on its own. Add a bit of freshness with a salad or veggies if preferred, and a side of garlic bread.

  • Prefect for when you just don’t have the time. Can’t wait to try this, yum!


  • I have seen the jar bechemal sauce but just can’t bring myself to buy it. What is it like? Are the flavours of freshly made sauce there?


  • Love this version and so easy to make.


  • a great quick and easy recipe to whip up when you are after something fast for dinner


  • Lasagna is a,ways a winner in this household. The kids love it.

  • Nice and easy, I have to try it. What kind of cheese would you suggest?
