How do I make this Bolognese Rotolo?

Step 1

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and cook the mince, stirring, for 4-5 minutes or until browned. Add celery, carrot, courgette, onion, tomato puree and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until vegetables soften slightly

Step 2

Next add the chopped tomatoes ,1/2 tin of water, stock cubes, and Italian herbs. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes- the sauce should thicken. Cool. Preheat oven to 180°C

Step 3

Meanwhile prepare your lasagne sheets. If they’re dry you need to cook them for a couple of minutes until they are flexible but not cooked through, and then cool them down. If you’ve got fresh or have made your own – continue.

Step 4

Cut the sheets in half length ways. Spread the halved lasagne sheets with the mince mixture – you want a fairly decent coating, but not too much that you can’t roll them up! Starting from 1 short side, roll up to form a log

Step 5

Place some of the mince mixture in the bottom of an oven proof dish – a couple of cm’s deep. Place the rolled up sheets end up in the dish. Repeat with the remaining lasagne sheets until they’re all in there

Step 6

Pour the rest of the mince mixture over the Rotolo. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 35-40 minutes until the pasta is cooked. Enjoy!
