The first step to make lasagna without an oven is to prepare and soften the pasta sheets you will use. To do this, simply follow the cooking instructions indicated on the package. If not, place the sheets in a pot with boiling water for a few minutes until you see they are softening, but being very careful not to over cook them as they may break. Also, take care that you don´t place them in all at once as they may stick to each other.
It is now time to prepare the stir-fry sauce to fill the lasagne. Put a pan to heat with a splash of olive oil and add the onion, crushed garlic and the previously chopped green and red peppers. Stir-fry using an average temperature for a few seconds until they have softened a little.
Once these ingredients are ready, break apart the minced meat and add it to the pot, salt it and continue stir-frying, constantly stirring with a wooden spoon to blend flavours and avoid burning.
Finally, when the meat has begun to change color, add a pinch of oregano and parsley. Then, add the tomato puré gradually and mix to keep everything integrating. Now leave everything to cook so that the tomato is reduced and meat cooks through.
When the stir-fry is ready turn off the heat and put aside. Now it is time to prepare the bechamel sauce for the lasagna.
To begin the assembly of this lasagna for which you will need no oven you must take a container that you can put in the microwave. The procedure is very simple, first a thin layer of pasta at the bottom of the container until it is completely covered, then cover it with the vegetable and meat stir-fry which you prepared earlier. Repeat this steps once more and end with a thin layer of pasta. Pour on the bechamel sauce, ensuring that it is distributed uniformly and all will be ready!
Complete the lasagna by placing it in the microwave, select the program which combines cooking and grill and leave to cook for some 10 or 20 minutes, the time will depend on the power of your microwave. You will know your lasagna is ready when you can easily stick a fork through it and when the cheese is bubbling. And voilà! Your lasagna made without an oven is ready to serve and savor. Enjoy your food!
