Lasagna instructions

So you make cheese sauce with butter in a pan, heat up milk, sift some flour in there or itll go lumpy, add truck loads of cheese (just taste until you like the intensity)

You’ll need a full pan of the sauce.

Then start with a base layer of the sheets, pumpkin and Kumara mix on top of that, slice the onions lengthwise so they just come out in little c shapes, that’s hard to explain sorry but instead of dicing them slice them so all the layers in the onion just pop out, throw the onion and garlic cloves on top, then half a can of tomatoes, another layer of sheets, a layer of cheese sauce, more pumpkin and Kumara mix, spinach, half a can of corn, lasagna sheets, half tomatoes, more pumpkin and Kumara mix, onion etc, more tomatoes, more cheese sauce, then I throw in a mixture of herbs (best if fresh) oregano, some basil but not too much, chives, layer of pastry again then cheese sauce on top (important for all sheets to be covered or they will go hard) then grated cheese on top.
