Lasagna is usually an hours-long labour of love. But not with the CleverChef Pro which cuts cooking time in half.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with some crisp, cold lettuce and some deliciously buttery garlic bread.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, finely diced
- 500g minced beef
- 1L jar tomato pasta sauce
- Salt / Pepper to taste (depending on salt content of the sauce)
- 60ml cold water
- 900g ricotta
- 2 large eggs
- 50g cold parmesan, grated
- 2 tsp garlic, minced
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 200g lasagne sheets
- 1 pack of mozzarella, shredded
With lid off, choose the SAUTE function and then the BEEF STEAK program, press START and add the oil, waiting for 1-2 mins for it to heat up.
Add the onions, minced beef, salt and pepper and continue cooking until the onions become translucent and the beef has browned approx 5-6 mins.
Add the pasta sauce and water to the beef and onions. Stir and press BACK to cancel cooking. Carefully remove from heat into a large bowl.
In another bowl, mix ricotta, eggs, parmesan, garlic, seasoning, and some more salt and pepper (to taste).
Fill the bottom of the cooled CleverChef Pro with ¼ inch of water. Ladle a fifth of the beef and sauce into the bottom then top with lasagne sheets. Cover the sheets with a third of the cheese. Cover the cheese with another layer of sauce, then sheets. Repeat until all layers have been used. The final layer should be sheets topped with sauce.
Close the lid and set the pressure release valve to closed. Choose the PRESSURE COOK function and then the BEEF STEW program and adjust timer to 7 minutes. Press START.
When the program has finished allow a SLOW RELEASE. If lasagne needs to be browned, carefully remove from the pan into a dish, sprinkle with remaining cheese and grill for 10 minutes until you have a lovely golden brown topping.
Serve and enjoy.
