Bechamel Sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Slice the pumpkin or eggplant into thin slices (if using pumpkin, you can cut the skin off or leave it on during the cooking process). You will need enough to do 2 layers of lasagne (25x35cm tray)
  3. Cover the eggplant/pumpkin in a generous amount of butter
  4. Lightly cover the slices with 1 clove of crushed garlic, salt and pepper
  5. Put the pumpkin/eggplant into the oven and cook until soft (but not so that the slices are mushy)
  6. Turn a fry pan onto medium heat and melt a large nob of butter
  7. Dice the onion and then sauté in the pan
  8. Add 3 cloves of crushed garlic and mix together
  9. Add the mince and cook completely through (i.e. until completely brown)
  10. Thinly slice the mushrooms and add to the frypan
  11. Add 1 heaped tbsp of tomato paste and mix thoroughly through
  12. Add the diced tomatoes and mix through
  13. Add ~50g cream (more or less to taste)
  14. Season the mixture with salt and pepper
  15. Grease the bottom of a baking tray with butter (I use a 25x35cm glass baking tray)
  16. Take the pumpkin/eggplant out of the oven and line the bottom of the tray with enough pumpkin or eggplant to completely cover it
  17. Spoon half the mince mixture over the eggplant/pumpkin
  18. Put the second layer of eggplant/pumpkin over the mince
  19. Cover the eggplant/pumpkin with the remaining mince mixture
  20. Cover the mince mixture with the béchamel sauce
  21. Generously cover the lasagne with grated cheese (you can use a cheese mixture for extra deliciousness - mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar)
  22. Put into the oven and cook until the cheese is golden brown
For the Bechamel Sauce
  1. Melt the butter in a pot at a medium heat
  2. Add the flour and cook for about 2 minutes. It should bubble somewhat but not brown. It’s important that you cook the flour otherwise the sauce will have a flour taste.
  3. Gradually add the milk bit by bit making sure there aren’t any lumps
  4. Once you have added all the milk continue to stir until the sauce thickens
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste
