Slimming World Lasagne

Another recipe, going to make this for dinner for the troops tomorrow - love how on slimming world we can all eat the same. Something very miserable about eating seperately from the family. I am also not comfortable with the kids realising I am "on a diet" so this way they need never know!!


Ingredients
Serves 4
7.5 syns for entire recipe
400g of extra lean beef mince
1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic crushed
3 rasher of turkey bacon or similar lean bacon
1 carrot chopped
4 mushrooms chopped
400g tin of tomatoes or passata
1 sweet potato
fresh herbs (thyme, oregano, sage, rosemary)
cinnamon
chilli powder
1 beef stock cube mixed with 200ml of water
balsamic vinegar
spray oil
42g of mozzarella cheese
approx 9 sheets of lasagne (boiled if not ovenready)
for the cheese sauce
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
240ml of skimmed milk
42g of reduced fat cheddar cheese
Method
Preheat oven to 180c or 350f
Spray a frying pan with some spray oil and cook the bacon with a pinch of cinnamon until golden,
Add the onions, garlic, carrot and herbs cook for a further few minutes, making sure it is all mixed together.
Add the beef mince and cook till browned.
Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, stock and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Then cover with some greaseproof paper and cook for approx 1 hour over a gentle heat on the hob.
In the meantime if using non ovenready lasagne sheets, boil them in a large saucepan until cooked.
Peel and slice the sweet potato, sprinkle with some chillipowder and spray with sprayoil and bake in the oven until tender.(approx 45 mins).
When the meat mixture has almost finished it’s cooking time you can make  the cheese sauce, Mix the cornstarch with a little of the milk and add to the rest of the milk in a small saucepan over a low heat, constantly stirring until it comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the 42g of cheddar cheese.
Using a square dish. Spray the bottom with some spray oil and lay 3 sheets of lasagne on the bottom. Top with half the meat mixture and then layer with the sweet potato. Do another layer of 3 lasagne sheets again top with the remaining half of the meat mixture. Then top with the last 3 lasagne sheets.
Pour over the top the cheese sauce.
Turn oven up to 200c or 400f and bake for 30 mins, remove from oven add the 42g of mozzarella to the top and return to the oven for approx 5 mins until cheese has melted.
