What you need:

package of lasagna noodles

2 cans of crushed tomatoes

2 dl cream

3-4 dl milk

400 g mozzarella

4 tomatoes

400 g (grated) emmental

250 g (grated) matured cheddar

chunk of parmesan

2 onions

can of kidney beans

can of white beans

can of black beans

2 gloves of garlic

black pepper

basil

What you do:

1. Chop onions and gloves of garlic. Parboil them a little, add in the crushed tomatoes and 1 dl of cream. Rinse all beans and add them into the sauce. Season with black pepper and basil. Cook with mild heat for about 5-10 minutes.

2. While the sauce is cooking, butter the baking dish ready and slice tomatoes and mozzarella.

3. Mix cheddar and emmental together, leave about 100g of the cheddar for later use.

4. Now it’s time to assemble the whole thing. Spread a thin layer of the sauce in the bottom of the baking dish.

5. Arrange 4-6 noodles lengthwise on top of the sauce. Now spread slices of mozzarella on top and then set another layer of noodles.

6. Add mozzarella and tomato slices over the noodles, finish this layer with cheese mix. Then add another set of noodles.

7. Now cover the noodles with the sauce and sprinkle once again cheese mix on top of it, then add noodles.

8. Now it’s the final layer. Spread all that is left from the sauce over the noodles, do the same with all ingredients that you have left. Sprinkle the cheddar as well as parmesan on top.

9. At this point mix 1 dl of cream and 3-4 dl of milk, and pour it to the edges of the lasagna stuff.

Cover the baking dish with foil, this way the top layer won’t get burned. Bake in a preheated oven (200°C) for about 30 minutes. Now you can remove the foil and bake for 10-20 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes before serving!
