Mac and Cheese Lasagne

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

If you don't have a microwave you can cook the cheese sauce on the hob. Add the flour and 2 tbsp of the milk to a small saucepan and whisk into a smooth paste. Add in the rest of the milk and whisk again. Place the pan over a low heat and continue to whisk for 6-8 minutes until thickened. Be careful not to boil the mixture. Once thickened, add the mustard powder, spreadable cheese and 20g Cheddar cheese and whisk until melted and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Added a garlic & herb crust and mushrooms
I added a garlic & herb breadcrumb crust which accelerated this dish. I also added chopped mushrooms, chopped fresh basil and I grated the carrot to give a different texture.
Added diced mushrooms and fresh chopped basil
I added diced mushrooms like I would in a lasagna. I also sprinkled chopped fresh basil when layering in the oven dish.
Hint & Tip
I added an extra 1/4 tsp of mustard powder to the white sauce mixture. I also added 1 tsp of sugar to the tomato sauce mixture to cut through the acidity. It was absolutely delicious.
Two favourites in one
I recommend making the bolognese and letting it cook before topping it with the Mac n Cheese so avoid it sinking into the sauce.
