Lamb Ragu Lasagna

Lamb Ragu Lasagna

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.

For the lamb ragu

  • Heat a large nonstick pan over medium to high heat.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the finely chopped onion.
  • Lower heat and sauté until the onion caramelizes nicely.
  • Add the garlic and sauté.
  • Add the ground lamb and sauté until it becomes whiter in color.
  • Add the wine and allow the alcohol to evaporate.
  • Lower heat to medium and add the ready tomato sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock, grape must, salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • The filling will not be very thick but this is how you want it to be so that the lasagna can soak up all of the moisture and cook.
  • Remove from heat and add the fresh herbs and 70 g of gruyere cheese.

For the béchamel sauce

  • Place a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the butter and let it melt.
  • Add the flour and sauté.
  • Heat the milk in a microwave and start to add it to the saucepan in small batches, while whisking continuously so that no lumps are formed in the mixture.
  • When all of the milk has been added and incorporated, cook until the mixture thickens.
  • Remove from heat and add the 2 egg yolks, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Whisk.
  • Add the grated gruyere and whisk until completely combined.
  • Set the béchamel sauce aside until needed.

To assemble

  • Spread some of the lamb ragu on to the bottom of a 25x30 cm ovenproof baking dish.
  • Cover with half of the lasagna and add half of the ragu. Spread evenly.
  • Spread half of the béchamel sauce over it and cover with the other half of the lasagna.
  • Add the remaining ragu, cover with the rest of the béchamel and sprinkle with the 150 g of gruyere.
  • Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes, until nice and golden.
  • Remove from oven and set the lasagna aside for at least 10 minutes before serving.
