Accessories you need
* I use a normal or premium grade mince, I find that the diet mince/heart smart with low amounts of fat breaks up too much and you'll end up with a very fine sauce,
*you may find the bolognaise quite wet, by using dry lasagne sheets they will absorb the moisture. If you decide to use fresh lasagne sheets I'd suggest to omit the 100g water.
*I've been using this recipe for many years. Our family love it. I understand that it doesn't have any hidden veg, if you want to add some veggies go ahead. We have this as a sometimes meal. The original recipe came from Pete Evans' Mum (you can google it, and was clearly made before he became paleo!) I have made a few changes and converted to Thermomix.
