Lasagna


1 box of oven ready lasagna
1 cup minced meat
1 tbsp oil

1 cup vegetables *
2 to 3 tbsp onion
1 tsp garlic chopped
1 tsp ginger grated
1/2 tbsp chillie powder

1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp salt
1 can pasta sauce
1 1/2 cans of water
1/2 cup coriander leaves

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups ricotta or cottage cheese
1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
2 cups spinach
1 tomato sliced

* grated carrot, zucchini sliced, mushrooms anything or a mixture of vegetables

Heat oil sauté the onions, garlic and ginger. Add the minced meat with the spices and sauté. When the meat has separated add the vegetable and sauté. Add the sauces and water, cook covered for about 10 minutes.
The sauce should be thick but in a pourable consistency if it is too thick add water.

In a bowl mix the egg, ricotta or cottage cheese and spinach if using.

Pour meat sauce in a 13 x 9 dish and layer the lasagna strips without overlapping, spread mozzarella cheese, egg mixture, another layer of the lasagna and repeat with the cheese and sauce, ending with a layer of sauce. Place tomato slices and put some cheese over it.

Bake at 400F covered with foil for 35 to 40 minutes, open the foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and keep covered for 10 minutes before serving.
