DH was away for 3 days since Friday, off somewhere in Belgium. While he was away, I decided to try and make lasagne for the first time in my life. Why didn't I make it while DH was around? Well. . . I'm such a good wife you see. On the rare occasions that I cook pasta dishes, I have to make another dish for DH who is not that fond of it, ohhh he eats them no doubt, but he still craves for that something extra. So, being a "good" wife, I
DS and I love Italian food, but this was my first try at making lasagne. We got this packet of lasagne pasta from our host when we went to Milan last October.
I used 4 pieces of them. Put the pasta in boiling water for 10/12 minutes.
And I used the following packet for the white/cheese sauce. Bought it here in Holland.
Dissolve 1 packet of the sauce mix in 500 ml of milk. I used 400 ml of milk only, so the sauce was a bit thicker. Next time, I will make my own cheese sauce . . .
And the meat sauce? I made my own. . .

Ingredients for the meat sauce :
200g minced chicken
2 garlics - pounded
1 onion - cubed
