Sometimes making a quick survey of what is available at the meat section of my supermarket, looking for inspiration, I come across some ground lamb meat; ground lamb meat isn't always available of course but when I find it this easy to make lamb meat lasagna recipe comes to mind with great anticipation! This lasagna recipe is quick to make and it won't disappoint.


* 2 red bell peppers
* 2 carrots
* 1/2 lbs. leeks
* 1 lb. of ground lamb meat
* 1 teaspoon dried oregano
* salt and pepper
* 5 tablespoons olive oil
* 16 oz. canned peeled diced tomatoes

1. Preparing the lamb meat and vegetables:

Cut the peppers into small cubes, thinly slice the ​​carrots and cut the leeks into rings. Season the meat with oregano, salt and pepper. Cook the lamb meat in a little bit of oil. Add vegetables and sauté everything together. Add tomatoes, simmer all about 20 min. Check and adjust seasoning.

2. Assembling the lasagna:
