Homemade Pork and Beef Lasagne

You know those days when you crave something so decadent that it's almost sinful? Yes? Ok...I'm sharing one of my guilty pleasure with you. I have a number of lasagne recipes to suit many different types of diets and I will share those with you all, as we go along. However, this one right there throws all rules out the window.

9 oz package of  no boil lasagne
1lb ground beef
1lb ground pork
2 tsp adobo con pimiento
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 tsp dried oregano
32 oz tomato and basil pasta sauce

Bechamel Cheese Sauce
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cup milk
2 cup mozzarella, cheddar and asado cheese, shredded
Salt & pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 375F
  • Place both ground beef and ground pork in a heated pan. Brown meat and crumble using a wooden spoon.
  • Add garlic, adobo seasoning, black pepper, paprika, onion and oregano and combine well.
  • Once meat is cooked (no pink left) add pasta sauce and cook for another 5 minute then turn off heat.
  • In a sauce pan, melt butter the add flour. Whisk together until smooth and light gold in color.
  • Add milk and heat until just about to boil. (DO NOT ALLOW SKIN TO FORM)
  • Turn down heat to lowest setting and add 1 1/2 cups of cheese blend. Reserve half cup.
  • Continue whisking until mixture is smooth.
  • Turn off heat and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Prepare 9" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Pour a layer of cheese sauce in the bottom of the pan, then a layer of pasta, a layer of meat sauce and a layer of cheese sauce.
  • Repeat layering process until your pan is full. You should have about 4 layers in a 9" pan.
  • Your top layer should be pasta, meat sauce, cheese sauce and sprinkle remaining shredded cheese blend.
  • Bake covered with foil for 50 minutes. Uncover, then bake for another 10 minutes or until edges are brown.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 20 minutes before serving.
