I do the whole mince, béchamel, then pasta sheet but the difference in mine is I put a layer of spinach mixed with feta in mine - it is super tasty, the continue on with mince, béchamel, pasta then loads of béchamel and grated cheese on top!! YUM!!

Wow, you know I love you DE, but if I came to your place and you lured me in with lasagne I'd be thrilled... then mortified that you stealthily attacked me with boiled eggs! (I hate eggs).

u hate egg? that must super suck.(protein wise they are ace)
s'ok, i could make a mini one for you without the egg.

Yeah, I hate egg. I used to get them in via french toast. I can't eat egg that has an egg texture without being sick... (so not even quiche/fritatta etc) so I soaked it up and made french toast... only way to get it in.
Anyway... back to the topic of lasagne rather than egg...

I make my own pasta from scratch using wholemeal flour. Then I taint it by using a jar of pasta sauce, lol. I make an enormous quantity of white sauce. Then I layer it all together and it tastes delicious, but looks terrible because i use so much white sauce.
I'm glad someone asked this question because I had never heard of lasagne without white sauce and suddenly I was seeing it everywhere!

Onion and garlic, then add mince and brown. Then tomato paste, then red wine, cook off then add canned tomatoes. Then oregano and thyme, a bit of sugar to cut down the acidity. Simmer for as long as you can- up to 2hrs, but sometimes I've only done in for 20mins.
Beschamel Sauce- flour, butter on the stove til bubbling, then milk. Cook until thick, then add cheese (tasty + parmesan) and nutmeg.
Layer lasagne- meat sauce, fresh lasagne sheets, beschamel, meat sauce...continue. Last layer is lasagne sheet then beschamel- never add more cheese, just goes oily. Cook at 190 deg until browned (around 20-30mins). It's always a hit.

I made Lasagne on the weekend but instead of pasta sheets I use Eggplants and its freaking awesome!
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.

I haven't made it yet but I saw it on TV and it is on my fantasy bake list. For that mythical day when I have no children around to distract me while I bake. http://everydaygourmet.tv/recipes/110 I might also need to save my pennies for all the ingredients!
