Lasagna (Version 1)

Page Contents: Recipe

Jump to Recipe

This is my first attempt at lasagna using the Thermomix to make the sauce.  I’ve used the bolognaise recipe as the basis for this lasagna, but I’ve found that while the sauce tasted good (which is why I’m still posting it), there was a lot liquid when I went to serve it.  So, I’ve labeled this version 1 and the next time, I’m going to change some things around to get rid of the water.

[Version 2 can now be found here!]

  • Add tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, dried herbs, stock and vegetables, use the spatula to quickly mix the ingredients together and cook with MC half off for 15 minutes | 100C | Reverse | Speed soft
  • Stir with the spatula, taste and add additional seasoning if necessary then cook with MC half off for 10 minutes | Varoma | Reverse | Speed soft
  • Cover the base of a 25.5cm x 25.5cm (or 9 inch x 9 inch) roasting dish with about 1cm layer of sauce
  • Put a layer of lasagna sheets on top of the sauce
  • Mix the cheeses together and sprinkle half of the cheese over the lasagna sheets
  • Top with all but about 2 cups of sauce (up to the top of blades) and add another layer of lasagna sheets
  • Put with the rest of the sauce on top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese
  • Bake in the middle shelf of the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown
  • Let rest for 15 minutes with a piece of aluminum foil on top


  1. This recipe makes 4 very generous servings, so it will feed 6 if you serve it with something else – like a salad or steamed veggies.
  2. The lasagna sheets will expand as they cook, so leave about a 0.5cm gap between the sheets or overlap them to avoid the sheets buckling against each other
  3. If after 30 minutes, the top isn't brown, turn on the grill to finish it off
  4. Take leftover lasagna sheets and cut into 1cm strips to make into fettuccini.  They can be frozen and cooked straight from the freezer at a later date.
