Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Fresh pasta Recipe ID: 2581231 (or buy dry pasta)
about 4 sheets
Meat sauce (Recipe ID: 2548254)
about 200 g
Butter (for white sauce)
30 g
Cake flour (for white sauce)
2 tablespoons
Soup stock granules (for white sauce)
1/2 teaspoon
Soy milk (for white sauce)
250 ml
Salt
a small amount
Pepper
a small amount
Shredded cheese
about 100 g
Parmesan cheese
as needed
Parsley
to taste

Steps

1. Melt 30 g of butter over a medium low heat and add in 2 tablespoons of cake flour.
2. Stir until it starts to bubble.
3. Add in 250 ml of soy milk in 2 to 3 batches. Stir well with a whisk, so lumps do not form. Season with a little bit of salt and pepper and 1/3 of soup stock granules.
4. Since we're using fresh pasta, we only need to cook the pasta for about 1 and a half minutes. No need to add salt to the hot water because the pasta has some salt in it.
5. Prepare the meat sauce, white sauce, shredded cheese, pasta and parmesan cheese.
6. Line a baking dish with the meat sauce.
7. Spread the white sauce over the meat sauce.
8. Evenly spread the shredded cheese.
9. Lay a pasta sheet.
10. Repeat the process.
11. After making multiple layers, put more white sauce on top along the four sides of the baking dish.
12. Put shredded cheese on top.
13. Sprinkle the lasagna with parmesan cheese.
14. Microwave for 3 minutes. Bake in toaster oven for about 6 minutes or golden browned, and serve! Alternatively, you can bake in the oven, if you have one.
15. Cross section looks something like this.

Story Behind this Recipe

My friend and I went to an Italian restaurant and discovered this delicious lasagna. The sauce had sweetness and great flavor and we loved it, so I tried making the same lasagna at home with my homemade pasta.
