Alberton Record and Food Lovers Market bring you the Tip of the Week

Portion of traditional durum wheat lasagne with bolognaise sauce, beef mince and cheese in alternating layers on a white plate

HANDED down from generation to generation in stained cookbooks and recipe cards, comfort foods – such as lasagna – will always be a family favourite throughout the seasons. This classic lasagna recipe perfectly marries the traditional Italian meat sauce with layers of satisfying cheese and pasta is perfect for a hungry family. Pair it with a fresh garden salad for an easy Friday evening crowd-pleaser.

Quinton Mostert, store manager at Food Lover’s Market at Mall @ Newmarket shares his favourite simple summer lasagne recipe.
