How to make Lovely Lasagne
For the white sauce
Put the milk, butter and flour in a saucepan and gently heat, stirring all the time.
Keep stirring the sauce until it has all melted and has thickened slightly.
Add the mustard (if using) and cheese and stir continuously until melted.
Sprinkle about a 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg into the sauce and stir.
Check the seasoning by tasting and add salt if needed.
Assembling the Lasagne
Preheat the oven to 180°C (Gas mark 4 or 160°C for a fan oven).
Put a small amount of Bolognese onto the base of an ovenproof dish (approximately a third of the mix).
Add a small amount of white sauce and then cover with a layer of the lasagne sheets.
Repeat with another layer of Bolognese (1/3 of the sauce), a little white sauce and lasagne sheets until all the sauces have been used.
Finish with a layer of lasagne sheets and top with the rest of the white sauce.
Add the grated cheese and put into the oven for about 45 minutes or until bubbling and golden.
Serve with a green salad.
