When doubling the meat sauce and you get to sautéing the beef mince, increase the sautéing time to 16 minutes to ensure all the mince has been cooked.

Only use 3 tins of crushed tomatoes as apposed to 4 tins. 4 tins will not fit in the TM5 and I don't think it needs the extra.

When adding the tomatoes, salt & sugar increase cooking time to 90 minutes.

    Thanks for your feed back. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for your tips too. I have a huge lasagne dish so that's why I double the recipe ☺.

    I made this recipe for my husband's birthday. He's a huge lasagne fan and he loved it. When sautéing the beef I used stir, instead of speed one. I found there was plenty of meat sauce without needing to double the recipe. I also found that the cheese sauce needed extra cooking time to make it nice and thick.  It does take a while to make, so definitely a recipe for the weekend or a day off work. I'll be making it again. tmrc_emoticons.) Yum!
