The pasta, the meat sauce, and the white sauce are all made from scratch! This is surprisingly easy to make and extremely delicious.

Pork
200 g
Onion
1 medium
Canned tomato
1 can
Red or white wine, or sake
2 tablespoons
Consommé soup stock cube
1
Oregano, sage, thyme, black pepper
to taste
White Sauce
Milk
500 ml
Cake flour
6 tablespoons
Butter
40 g
Consommé soup stock cube
1/2 cube
Pasta
Cake flour
100 g
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Egg

Salt
a small amount
Pizza cheese

Steps

1. First make the meat sauce. Cook the ground meat and onion.
2. Once the meat has cooked, add in all of the meat sauce ingredients and simmer on low heat.
3. Season with herbs.
4. Simmer until the tomatoes lose their shape.
5. Make the white sauce. Put the butter and flour into a deep heat-resistant container and microwave until the butter has melted.
6. Mix well and then gradually pour in the milk as you stir with a whisk. Mix it in well. Add the consommé cube and microwave for about 8 minutes until it thickens.
7. The meat sauce and the white sauce are done.
8. Make the pasta. Put the flour, egg, salt, and olive oil into a bowl and combine well.
9. Roll out the dough about 2 mm thick and match the length to the size of the lasagna dish you will be using.
10. With 100 g of flour you can make about 4 sheets of lasagna noodles.
11. Put the noodles in boiling water to cook. They will rise to the surface fairly quickly. After 1-2 minutes, remove from the water and place on a paper towel to soak up the moisture.
12. In a heat-resistant dish, layer the meat sauce, white sauce, and lasagna noodles, in that order. Repeat as necessary with the topmost layer being the white sauce.

14. Lastly, top with lots of cheese. Garnish with parsley to make it look nice.
15. Bake it in the toaster oven for 5 minutes. Once the cheese has lightly browned, it's done.
16. Slice it and enjoy.
