Garfields Lasagne.

A group of friends have a habit of labelling a Lasagne a ‘garfield’ if it is eaten with relish and there is none left.  I prepared this lasagne during the week for 2 different groups and both finished it with clean pots.  So it is definitely a ‘Garfield’ to be enjoyed.
You will need;

·         1 Cauliflower (finely chooped or blended)

·         4 Medium Zuchinin(finely grated)

·         4 Medium onions

·         4 Medium Carrots (finely grated or shaved)

·         1 Kg Mince

·         12 sheets lasagne

·         2 t/spoons mixed herb

·         s1 t/spoon Garlic powder1

·         800 Ml Can condensed soup1

·         800Ml Can Kidney beans

·         100 Ml tub Pizza sauce

·         30 Ml vegetable stock.

·         Small amounts of Parmesan, Mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.

and 2 large baking trays.

Slice the onion and allow to sit for several minutes.  Fry the onion lightly in the stock. Once the onion has gone soft, add the mixed herbs and garlic.  Then add the mince and brown it off. Once the meat is cooked through add the pizza sauce and the tomato soup.  Bring back to a light simmer.Add the cauliflower, zuchini, and carrott and simmer until the carrot has softened.Once the carrot has softened add the kidney beans.  Add enough water or stock to ensure the sauce is liquid.  Return to simmer and then turn off and allow it to sit covered for 30minutes.
Lightly oil the baking trays and add enough sauce to cove the bottoms.  Add lasagne sheets and cover with sauce.  Add new sheet and add a sprinkling of mozzarella and Parmesan style cheeses.Continue adding sheets and sauce until the trays are filled.  Cover with a light sprinkling of cheese.

Place in an oven at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Serve and eat.
This recipes feed 20 children after 2 hours of Basketball.  Feel free to adjust to suit your number of hungry mouths.  Lasagne like this will quite happily freeze for up to several weeks if you want to put some aside for later.
I have served this lasagne including grated beetroot and sweet potato.  I started doing this when feeding kids who would chorus “I don’t like vegetables.”  Never start the meal telling them that it is over 50% vegetables, but nowadays I always turn it into a game to see if the kids can tell me which vegetables are in it.
Happy eating.  Add a garden or greek salad as a side dish and this can be considered a very healthy meal.
Cheers Fran
