    For those that have been having trouble with dish size, I've been making this for years and find the large Maxwell & Williams lasagne dish (35 x 24cm) is the right size - even with the extra bechamel sauce I find it needs.

  • This really lives up to the title. Perfect indeed!...

    Submitted by rtilse on 12. April 2020 - 12:18.

    This really lives up to the title. Perfect indeed! Made 1.5 times the sauce as per some of the comments and did not need it. It went to waste, but I did have a bit of left over meat which I froze. S I guess it depends on the size dish you use. I used a typical white cermaic lasagne dish 30 x 18cm. Hubby loved this too and it was even better the next day!! Thanks for the recipe, love all the extra veges. Think I might add some baby spinach next time too.

    The BEST lasagna EVER!

    The recipe has replaced my mums recipe that I have loved all my life. The veggies give the sauce soo much flavour. Next time I could easily add more veggies to make the mince sauce go further as I use a large dish.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Absolutely love this recipie. Have made it twice, the first time with the exact ingredience and the second time with just random vegies I had in the fridge - worked just as well! Both times had quite a bit of left overs though so use a large dish if you have one.

    I'm yet to taste this lasagne, it's currently in the oven cooking. My carrots must have been a little large, as it wasn't stirring it very well? So I added extra time and turned it up to speed 2 for the sauté step and once I added the meat.
    It'd be great if a size for the baking dish was specified as well, as I had quite a bit of leftovers.

    Absolutely delicious!

    I didnt drain rain the excess liquid after adding the mince, and it was perfect. I think it would have been too dry otherwise.

    As others suggested, I did 1.5 of the Bechemel sauce. It came out really runny, so I ended up heating it in a saucepan on the stove to thicken it up.

    I’ll be making this again for sure!
    Thankyou!!

    Submitted by denf1704 on 11. June 2018 - 21:53.

    I made this today. Loved it. I could hide all sorts of vegetables in it and the family didn't even know. I omitted the cans of tomatoes and added 1 x tomato passata instead. I also cooked the carrots, etc for a couple more minutes longer to make sure they were soft. I added celery, carrot, and butternut pumpkin to my lasagne. I didn't have a sweet potato, so just added more of the pumpkin. I used a different bechamel sauce though.

    Wow what a delicious lasagne! I used butternut pumpkin instead of sweet potato, cooked the veg mix for a minute longer (in the first attempt the carrot bits were still a bit crunchy) and added some extra italian herbs for an extra bit of flavour. The Bechamel sauce was perfect! My dinner guests loved it and it was with great reluctance that I let them take leftovers home with them. Tongue

    Submitted by Mrs Muller on 4. June 2017 - 19:26.

    The Perfect Lasagna definitely lived up to its name!!!
    My husband who puts BBQ sauce on everything didn't put sauce on this. I followered the recipe as closely as possible (except tipping extra liquid out) I questioned the 60 grams of pumpkin because it's such a small amount so I ended up roasting the extra pumpkin and serving it with dinner. It took me one hour to make. Then 30 minutes cooking time in the oven then I let it sit for about 20min before serving. I used one packet of Aldi Lasagna sheets which only gave me 3 layers. I'll definitely be making this again!

    Submitted by Kat68 on 11. November 2016 - 00:50.

    I'm not usually a fan of mince lasagne - too rich & heavy - but this version is super delicious and I loved that it was packed full of veges that added so much flavour without the kids even knowing they were there! I added a small jar of pasta sauce as I only had 1 tin of tomatoes and no paste. I also swapped some of the milk for white wine in the sauce as I like the flavour it gives and used plain supermarket fresh pasta sheets.
