My Dolmio lasagne plus is a really easy mid-week cheat boosting the flavours in the red sauce ragu.

A Sauce Like Mama Used to Make

Shop-bought lasagne sauces are great for quickly cooking up a family dinner, but don’t match ones made from scratch. Our busy lives mean we don’t always have time to make the red and white sauces like mama used to make.

However, enhancing Dolmio’s red lasagne sauce gives a lovely boost to the flavours. Plus it only adds 10 minutes to the cooking time.

According to Mary Berry, if you have the time, leaving the uncooked assembled lasagne to rest for 6 hours allows the pasta to start softening. I make mine in the morning, or the night before and leave it to rest in the fridge.

Dried lasagne is used in the recipe but pasta aficionados will want to use fresh lasagne, it’s just a matter of choice.

Presumably, any shop-bought sauce would do, but my wife and I prefer Dolmio, so we call it Dolmio Lasagne Plus.

Dolmio sauces originate from Australia, and after a trial launch in Scotland, have been popular in the UK and worldwide since the 1980s.
