Inge's Lasagne

I got the lasagne recipe from a very good friend of ours, her name is Inge. We were invited to her house for dinner one evening and she cooked this fabulous lasagne, it was so finger-licking-good that I quickly asked for the recipe, and she graciously shared it with us. I have since made this lasagne as a weekly sunday dish for my family. I hope that Inge doesn't mind me sharing out the recipe on my blog. So this recipe is specially dedicated to Inge and her family. :)

Ingredients (for 3-4 persons)

- Benito brand lasagne leaves (10-12 pieces from the box)
- 1 can of peeled tomatoes (400g)
- 1 courgette, chopped into small cubes
- 1 medium onion sliced thinly
- 250-300g philadelphia herbal cheese
- 200-250g goat cheese
- 300ml milk
- 6-8 pieces of ham, cut into small 1cm pieces
- 2 tsp of provencaalse herbs (may substitute with italian mixed herbs)
- pinch of pepper to taste

1. How to make ratatouille :
In a nonstick pot/pan, put some oil/butter, and fry the sliced onions until slightly brown. Add the courgette, followed by canned tomatoes. Flavour with provencaalse herbs. Close lid and simmer over small fire for 15-20min.

2. Preheat oven to 200C.

3. Mix philadelphia cheese with goat cheese and milk in a big bowl using a whisk or spatula. Add a dash of pepper while mixing it thoroughly. Make sure it is of liquid texture with no lumps.

4. In a big oven-proof dish, first place a layer of ratatouille (in step 1) at the bottom, followed by a layer of lasagne leaves (3-4 per layer). The lasagne leaves have to be broken into pieces and the edges must be slightly overlapped with each other. Then sprinkle a layer of ham, finally pour the cheese mixture (in step 3) on top of the ham. Lay the ovendish with the 3 layers in sequence. Just make sure that the uppermost layer is cheese mixture and ham.

The ingredients should be able to make at least 6 layers, or even 9 layers. (Ratatouille => lasagne leaves => cheese mixt with ham => ratatouille => lasagne leaves => cheese mixt with ham)

5. Bake for 45 min at 200C, until the top layer looks crispy and slightly brown, and the cheese sauce is sizzling.

Smakelijk eten !
