5. Step

Assemble the Lasagne. Now take your lasagne dishSpread a little of the meat sauce over the base of the dish. You don't need a lot. It's just to stop the lasagne sheets from sticking to the base of the dish.

6. Step

Top with lasagne sheets (try not to overlap, but we don't want big spaces either). Then top with a third of the béchamel, followed by a third of the meat sauce.Repeat twice more - lasagne ->béchamel->meat sauce->lasagne->béchamel->meat sauce

7. Step

Then sprinkle on the cheese and place in a preheated oven at 200C/400F for 25 - 30 minutes, until the cheese is golden. *it will take at least 25 minutes until the pasta is cooked in the sauce - so if the top of your lasagne starts looking too brown, place some foil on top.
