Ingredients:

1kg beef mince

2 onions, finely chopped

5 cloves garlic, crushed

1 large carrot, grated

½ cup tomato paste

2 cups beef stock 

2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons dried oregano

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 cups spinach, chopped

400g packet of lasagne sheets

Bunch of basil leaves to garnish 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180°C 


Mince

1. In your largest frying pan, heat a little oil over a high heat. When the pan is hot, add half the mince, breaking up the big lumps quickly with a wooden spoon. Leave the mince to sizzle until the underside is browned, then stir and brown the other side. Set aside and repeat with the remaining mince.

2. Discard any excess fat from the pan, replace over a medium heat and add a dash of oil. Add the onions, garlic, carrot and cook, stirring for about 10 minutes until soft.

3. Add the mince back into the pan with the tomato paste, stock, tomatoes, oregano, sugar and balsamic vinegar. Simmer gently for 25-30 minutes or until reduced to a thick sauce.

4. Add the spinach with 5 minutes to go. Season to taste.
