Cheeeeezy Lasagne with Minced meat

For me Any time is Pasta time : )
It makes me and my tummy very happy and i so enjoy making different sorts of pasta dishes.. As I said any time any pasta : )

Here you go:

300 gram minced meat
2 medium onions
4-5 pods fresh crushed garlic
½ tsp oregano
¼ tsp mixed herbs (kräuter der province)
Salt to taste
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tin canned tomatoes (340 gram diced)
¼ tsp turmeric (haldi)
½ tsp cumin powder
½ tsp coriander powder
3-4 tblsp oil

3 cups of cream fraiche (200 grm each)

-*heat the oil, give the garlic to it and let splutter
-* fry onion till light pink
-*add in the minced meat and mix well separating it in the oil
-* stir well and give in all the spices, stir till u get a nice fragrance of it
-*now add in the tomatoes tin and the paste and mix all till the juices of the tomatoes have dried up
-*season with some more herbs and let aside

-*Beat the cream fraiche in a bowl and add some milk to it so that it gets nice smooth and creamy but not runny!!!!
-*now first put some cream on the bottom of the casserole, then the sheets, then the minced meat, -*sprinkle some cheese, again the sheets, cream, minced meat cheese. Its good if you have at least 6 coatings that makes a really nice lasagna: )
-* sprinkle some minced meat and a good amount of grated cheese on the last top and bake in a preheated oven for around 30 mints, keep checking if the top cheese gets golden then cover it with an Alu foil so that it does not turn darker and let the rest bake. Poke a bread knife to check f the sheets are thru, means they are done.
-*let it rest for 5-7 mints and then cut as the pieces get set and you can cut them very nicely and safely : )
