    I make my own bolognaise sauce - onion, garlic, mince, mushrooms, 2 tins of crushed tomato, a small tin of tomato paste, mixed herbs, lil bit of BBQ sauce worchetshire sauce red wine and a pinch of sugar...
    Bechamel sauce - I get 500g of ricotta and 500g of cottage cheese mixed together with an egg (to bind it) ...
    Then I just layer it starting with the bolognaise, fresh lasagna sheet then my ricotta mix and so on.... ending with cheese ...

    I make huge batches (2-2.5kg) of mince with celery, onion, carrot, zucchini and mushroom with fresh tomato and passata. Loads of garlic, chilli and oregano as well. Then freeze into 500ml lots so I can make it fresh as required.

    Layer with instant sheets, finely sliced pumpkin and ricotta and top with packet cheese sauce if lazy or homemade if not. Smother in cheese.

    I think it probably depends on where in Italy your Nonnas are from, I know there tends to be huge food wars over there because "Italian cooking" could mean different things depending on where in Italy you're from.

    I make a few different types - beef, chicken, mushroom/spinach/veg. The chicken lasagne recipe calls for chicken livers - DP *never* lets me put them in! Bah.

    Badly! I don't know what it is... I follow the directions exactly and it is ALWAYS sloppy. Usually tastes great but looks feral

    I might need to steal some recipes from here.

    SO just make your mince sauce as you normally would, slice up eggplants so they look like sheets, bake in oven for about 10 mins with olive oil, garlic and salt on top. Then make the lasgane as you normally would using eggplants as layers. I just sprinkle cheese on top and its sooooo yummy!

    You can also do a canneloni with eggplant as well. So make the eggplant 'sheets' and put a ricotta filling in the middle and roll. Cover with a passta sauce and bake.

    Again delicious!
    'Eggplant version' of lasagne commonly known as Moussaka lol

    I find that making it the day before helps it to all "set" so when it is cut it holds it shape better. Plus it always tastes better when the memory and work of washing up all the pots and pans has faded!
