    Roland ( like Garfield ) loves lasagna, so here is a simple, basic recipe that works each time :

Lasagna for 6 people.

Meat Sauce

800 g minced meat
1 can tomato paste
1 can peeled tomatoes
Couple bay leaves
1 onion
4 garlics ( or more depending how much you like garlics )
A pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Salt, pepper, red wine to taste.

Fry the meat and onions, add the rest of the ingredients, add enough water to make a sauce that is not too thick, let simmer on low heat while you prepare the white sauce.

White sauce - Bechamel

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees

Make a basic Bechamel with 2 table spoons real butter, 2 table spoons flour, and one cup of milk.

Melt the butter on low heat, add the flour - mix. Add the milk little by little, always stirring, let it cook for a couple minutes, add a little salt, black pepper and a dash of nutmeg.

This recipe fits a 20 x 30 cm baking tray.

Layer the meat sauce and lasagna plates, top with the Bechamel, and some grated cheese.

Bake for about 20 minutes, let it cool and serve with a fresh green salad.
