A delicious HEINZ recipe for your family to enjoy.

INGREDIENTS

  • 500g broccoli florets (I used frozen, but you can use fresh as well)
  • 1 tblsp olve oil
  • 2 brown onions, finely chopped
  • 1 large red capsicum, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g beef mince (I always use lean mince)
  • 1 tblsp Italian herbs
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 820g HEINZ BIG RED Condensed tomato soup
  • 800g fresh ricotta (you can find this in the deli section of your supermarket)
  • 1/3 cup basil pesto
  • 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan (don’t use an alternative as this creates the best flavour)
  • 8 sheets fresh lasagne (375g packet) fresh lasagne

METHOD

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

2. Place broccoli in a heatproof, microwave safe bowl and add 1 tblsp water if using fresh broccoli. Cover. Microwave on High (100%) for 3 – 4 minutes or until tender. Drain. Blend or process until smooth. Set aside.

3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add capsicum, celery, carrot and garlic. Cook stirring for 5 minutes or until vegetables have softened. Add mince. Cook stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 8 – 10 minutes or until browned. Season. Stir in herbs, stock and soup. Bring to a simmer, uncovered fir 30 minutes or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.

4. Combine ricotta, pesto, 3/4 cup parmesan and broccoli in a large bowl. (I use my hands to make sure it all blends well).

5. Spread a thin layer of mince mixture over the base of a 12 cup capacity baking dish. Layer 2 sheets lasagne over mince, trimming to fit. Top with 1/3 remaining mince mixture and 1/3 remaining parmesan. Layer with another 2 sheets lasagne, then spread with half the ricotta mixture. Repeat layering, finishing with mince and parmesan.

5. Bake for 45 minutes or until cheese is melted.

6. Stand for 10- 20 minutes. Serve.

  4. I made 14 smaller patties and 4 larger patties (for burgers) out of the mixture. It is up to you what size you want to make. Place the patties on the baking trays and bake for 30 minutes or until they start to get golden (you don’t want them to dry out).
  5. Enjoy in a burger, wrap or couscous, with salad.
  6. You may also like to mix 1/2 cup of thick plain yoghurt, 2 tsp lemon juice and 1/2 grated cucumber as a sauce, if you wish.
