I can say with confidence that I know how to cook a good piece of meat lasagna. Why, because this is one dish that I have served to all my past boyfriends since college. No, I only had 3. Of course, my husband thinks that this is his special meal, so let this be our little secret. =)

Anyway, I don’t know what the fascination with men and lasagna is. Yes, the dish tastes good,(and yes, my lasagna is exquisitely delicious). But it’s as if cooking lasagna for your boyfriend, and now in my case, husband, puts a smile on their faces that rivals the one they make when their favorite football team is winning.

Anyway, enough of my love story and let’s get you started.

Your Ingredients:


250g packet of instant lasagna sheets

½ cup of freshly grated mozzarella cheese

½ cup of freshly grated cheddar cheese
½ cup of thickened or pouring cream
¼ cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese

For the Cheese Sauce:

60g of butter or margarine

⅓ cup of plain flour
2 cups of milk
1 cup of freshly grated cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper

For the Meat sauce:

1 tbsp of olive oil
1 finely chopped onion
1 crushed clove of garlic
500g of minced beef
2 x 425g cans of tomatoes
¼ cup of red wine
½ tsp of ground oregano
½ tsp of ground basil
Salt and pepper

How to make your Meat Lasagna with Red Wine

First, you need to preheat your oven to 180°C.

Next, get an ovenproof dish and brush it with oil or melted butter. You then line the dish with sheets of lasagne, making sure to fill in any gaps. Set aside the dish.

You then start making your cheese sauce by melting butter in a medium sized pan.

Add flour to the pan, let it sit for a minute, and then remove from heat.

You then add milk into the mixture and stir until it becomes smooth. Once done, return the pan to heat.

Over medium heat, continuously stir the mixture till it boils and becomes thick. You then reduce the heat and let it simmer for not more than three minutes.

Once done, remove the dish from the heat, and your cheese and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Stir the mixture well and set it aside for later.

And now for the sauce;

Get a large pan and heat some oil.

Once the oil is heated, add in your garlic and onion and stir over low heat till the onion softens.

Add in your beef and cook until it becomes brown.

Once done, throw in your (undrained) crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil, wine, salt and pepper and bring everything to a boil.

Once it starts boiling, reduce heat and let the dish simmer for 20 minutes.

Going back to the lasagne sheet:

Spoon in a third of your newly cooked meat sauce over the sheet.

You then top it off with another third of your cheese sauce.

You then finish this layer with another coat of lasagne sheets.

Continue doing this until the dish is full or till you run out of filling.

At the top part of your lasagne dish, give it a hefty sprinkling of cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

Pour your cream over the top with a generous sprinkling of Parmesan.

Bake dish for no more than 40 minutes or when you see it start to turn golden brown or bubble.

This procedure looks really long, I just hope one won’t quench from over salivating, but I guess it being it being meat lasagna with red wine will actually make it worth the wait and stress. Thank’s for sharing the secret though.

Amanda#2

Lasagna has to be my favourite meal, going to try this one this week. My husband isn’t a lasagna fan, but I may be able to convert him with this.

mariyam#3

looks good!love it. still trying the cooking hand, you are a life saver.This is the best lasagna video ever. And by the way, you’re a very good teacher. I like the idea
Looked sooooooo good! Gonna make it on Sunday!!!

tonythekid#4

1 hour and 15 minutes for lasagna? I have never been able to prepare such a dish in such little time! I really hope this turns out great, just looking at the ingredients used in the meat sauce and the pictures provided, it seems like this would be quite a tasty dish for the family!

Patrick Putman#5

This is my kind of twist on traditional lasagna. I really enjoyed my family’s recipe, but there wasn’t enough to it. With yours you don’t skimp on anything and the result is a heartier, meatier, more filling lasagna. As a man I appreciate being more full for supper!

Pri#6

Love the way, the recipe has been put up. It seems so delicious. It is little bit time-taking and I am not a good cook but will try my hands on this once.Hope, others would like it too.

Bryant #7

Man , I am just starting out in cooking , and found that this could help me a lot. I really want to make my own lasagna , would be the ideal dinner for the family.

Aarthi Arun#8

Lasagna is something that everybody loves and I guess I am at the top of all lasagna lovers !!! this recipe tastes absolutely fabulous. I tried it the same way that it is made here and if you do it right, trust me it is worth to die for !!!

Michael Adams#9

I was curious as to what type of wine would go best in this dish? is it worth spending more for a nice wine or should i just stick with cheap stuff!

Zack#10

I love Italian pasta dishes with red wine. I’m always looking for something new to try, and this looks amazing. It looks so easy to make also. Can’t wait to open a bottle and try this!

ayodele#11

now this is what i am talking about, i really need to get myself some of these delicacy, now what spices it up is the introduction of red wine to compliment the lasagna, purely italian. damn i cant wait.

Gabbie#12

Yummy, yummy! Lasagna has ALWAYS been my favorite as well as my families favorite Italian dish. After reading over this recipe, it seems like a lot of steps between the cheese sauce, meat sauce and adding in the wine. I am not sure that I would incorporate all of these steps into my lasagna cooking routine but it would not hurt to try! Thank for this!

AmberLouWho#13

For this Italian family we love to sit down after a hard days work to a huge bowl of saucy pasta- the more meat the better!! Lasagna has always been a tough dish for me to cook well, but I really hope this turns out because it looks so good in the picture!!! :)

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

    By DRW

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

    By grace jones

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
