Yesterday I was in the mood for pasta, so I decided to make a lasagna. I served it with green salad and garlic bread. Here is the recipe.


1 package ground beef

1 carrot grated

1 medium white onion

Fresh chives

3 stalks celery

Frozen spinach

Water Cress

1 medium sized tomato

1 red pepper

1 package of whole grain lasagna noodles

1 large bowl of grated cheddar cheese



Parsley (dried flakes)

Basil (dried flakes)

Dill (dried flakes)

Crushed red pepper flakes


Your favorite tomato based pasta sauce 700ml

Louisiana hot sauce

Prepare vegetables, chives and watercress (chop to desired size). On medium to high heat in some extra virgin olive oil fry the ground beef. Once it is nicely browned add all the spices and herbs. Stir well for a couple minutes. Now add your prepared vegetables. Cook until nicely tender and brown. Now add the Louisiana hot sauce, ketchup, and pasta sauce. Bring to a boil for a few minutes. While you are doing this get a large pot out and sprinkle olive oil in it. Fill it with cold water, and add a few shakes of salt to it. Bring to a boil and add the lasagna noodles. Cook or about 8 minutes or until soft (caution do not over cook them though, they will also get baked in the oven so they don’t have to be perfectly soft). Once the noodles are cooked, drain and run over cool water (to make them easy to handle). Now grease a baking pan with olive oil. Now layer the bottom with noodles. Then put a layer of meat mixture on top of this. Now add a layer of cheddar. Repeat whole layering procedure once again. When you are done you should have a layer of noodles on top. Sprinkle cheddar on top of this. Bake in your preheated oven at 350 degrees, for 30-45 minutes.
