The Cheat-Day - Lasagna

Yay, more cheat days!

Not a quick recipe, but easy nevertheless, and totally worth it.

THE MEAT

Saute onions and garlic in a little oil before adding minced meat. At this point I like to add a tiny pinch of cumin and paprika, but that's optional. Then add tomatoes/tomato sauce, and season with salt, pepper and oregano, and simmer till it thickens.

THE CHEESE

Make a bechamel sauce. Melt some butter and add some flour. Take off the heat to add milk and put it back on the heat. Add loads of cheese. Season and thicken.

COMBINE

Check whether your lasagna sheets require pre-cooking or not. Arrange lasagna sheets on the bottom, and then layer with the meat and then the cheese. Repeat: sheets, meat, cheese. Finish the top layer with cheese. Sprinkle fresh cheese on the top and bake till you see all that cheese bubble and turn golden.

Die from too much cheese.
