Lasagne Recipe – First Try with Great Results

I’ve never tried making lasagne before and had an urge to try it out. I didn’t realize just how long it takes to make, so I was very thankful it turned out to be delicious!

I don’t really like to follow recipes in every detail, so I just winged it.




  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes (700-800ml)
  • lasagne pasta (I used 9)
  • 500g minced chicken
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 carrots (diced)
  • 6 large white button mushrooms (large chunks)
  • 1.5 cups spinach (cut into large slices)
  • 2-3 cups shredded marble cheese (it’s all we had at home)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Hot pepper flakes
  • Dried Oregano and Basil
  • White wine (optional)


  1. Heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, onions then garlic. Cook until onions are translucent.
  2. Add minced chicken, herbs and spices with a bit of white wine into the pot and stir until cooked through.
  3. Add the vegetables and canned tomatoes.
  4. Reduce heat and let simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Cook pasta for approximately 6-8 minutes, making sure it’s al dente. Drain and set aside.
  6. Once the sauce is finished simmering, add a layer to the bottom of the baking dish.
  7. Add a layer of the pasta.
  8. Add a layer of meat/vegetable sauce.
  9. Add a layer of cheese.
  10. Another layer of pasta….and continue until you’ve run out of space.
  11. Finish off the top with a layer of shredded cheese and whisked egg to seal everything nicely.
  12. Bake at 350°F for approximately 45 minutes or until the top is a nice golden colour.


This is the end result for me:


I hope you can enjoy a yummy lasagne dish as well!
