In 1978 Ofelia's Lasagne a la Bolognaise became part of our family

Saute 1 finely chopped onion in 45 ml olive oil until golden brown with 2 medium carrots chopped and chopped fresh celery. Add 800 g lean topside mince and 2 or 3 chopped chicken livers and brown .
Add 500 ml water, 125 ml red wine (semi sweet), 1 x 113g tin tomato paste. If preferred increase the water and leave the wine but add 30 ml sugar. Cook over medium heat and stir occasionally.
Prepare the lasagne sheets as preferred
The difficult part is to stack the bolognaise, lasagne then the Bechamel in sequence
Top with strong flavoured grated cheese

Fill the glasses with a medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and enjoy a good match
