Freezer lasagnes

A dead easy, easy scale up-able, freezeable basic.

I'm pretty much cheating here. There is no bechamel sauce and it uses frozen veggies, but it's simple and it works. 

(Makes six medium lasagnes: 2 generous adult serves each) 

- 1 kg lean beef mince
-  750g frozen veggies (I used peas, carrots and corn )
- 4 jars pasta sauce
- 3 tins tomatoes
- 1 tin kidney beans (washed and drained) 
- 1-2 boxes lasagne sheets (we use whole meal) 
- grated cheese as per taste - 500g is generous

Brown the mince in portions. Combine the sauce, tomatoes, veggies and washed/ drained beans in a big big pot. Add the browned mince and simmer for 30 mins ish. 

Layer the meat sauce (which should be runnier than normal bolognese sauce) then pasta sheet, then cheese. Repeat two or three times depending on the size of your container/ hunger of your family. If desired you can sprinkle breadcrumbs on top of the top later if you like a crispy top. 

Freezes very well and easy to make up in bulk and in stages. Defrost in the fridge for 24 hours then cook in the over for 30 mins ish on 180 deg until brown on top and hot throughout. Serve with salad and or garlic bread.
