I tried to make some montaged photo images this morning to include more photos in a single post, but for some reason the software kept an saving the images looking like they'd been shredded then put back together out of order.  Anyway it isn't too difficult to follow the written method and for anybody who can cook it is pretty easy stuff.

Here are the ingredients I used yesterday and the 2 finished components before assembly and baking.  Not shown is the oil or Mozzarella. Yesterday I just used vegetable oil but you could use olive oil . I don't because I remove it anyway.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Thanks for posting up your method Livo, I may give it a crack sometime. I already have a lasagne sauce I'm happy with, which is miles away from what you're using (heavily anglicised, more gravy than tomato based). But I'm sure yours also delivers the goods.

Ever tried slow cooking that meat sauce for 3 or 4 hours to really render the mince and liberate the flavour?

I have not tried slow cook but it sounds interesting. This dish is now almost always a bulk job for me with triple quantity being the norm. This was a deliberate single so I could write it up as I went.

Like Phil, I can find no enthusiasm for Italian pasta dishes of any sort - but Italian restaurants thankfully offer a myriad of other excellent dishes as I found this last summer in Sorrento.
