When it comes to making white-sauce I am a failure. I came up with this recipe out of a dire need to make a truly scrummy lasagne without using white sauce. It does take some time to make the meat sauce but it is worth it! Serve with garlic bread and salad - yummy! I live in the Netherlands where there is a minced meat mixture called 'half-om-half' which includes pork and beef. I usually use this rather than just beef but have no idea what the proportions of each are in it. If you mix it yourself please post your proportions so I can try it too!
