Meat Lasagna with Red Wine


Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 55 minutes
Total time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Servings: 6


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.


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.


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!!!


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!

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!


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.

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.

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 !!!

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!


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!


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.


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!


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!!! :)

Kimberly Jones said: My mom loves these meat claws

There very durable and cut right threw the meat highly recommended. My mom works with a church and I got them for her she use to use a knife which took her awhile to cut up 5 big pans of pork roast up she loves these claws she said it cut her prep time in half and it broke the pork up very easily she told me thank you and that she loved them. Thank you Chef Remi you made my mom's day.

C.D. said: Love them

I love these measuring spoons. There are plenty of sizes so I have one for all my needs. They are sturdy and I believe they will last a long long time. I ditched the ring that holds them together because it is not my thing but I know lots of people that like that.

Kathy said: FINALLY a knife holder that WORKS

I have been wanting a magnetic knife holder FOREVER it seems. However, family and friends that had purchased numerous magnetic knife holders NEVER gave good reviews considering they didn't do what they were suppose too. So I decided to give Chef Remi's magnetic holder a try and I must say, I am beyond satisfied. I absolutely adore it! It does exactly what it is suppose to do, was easy to mount on the wall and adds more organization to my kitchen. I will definitely be referring everyone I know to this product and will purchase again if I ever get more knives.
