Lasagne is always best when made with fresh sheets of pasta, and these are now available in packets in all good supermarkets. Dried lasagne is fine as well, but it will need to be simmered gently to soften it before using. I haven't used a béchamel sauce because it takes too long – I've used a crème fraîche mixture that does a great job. A mixture of beef and pork is really tasty – it's just a brilliant sauce which can also be used for making spaghetti bolognese, stuffing cannelloni, mixing with sautéed mushrooms and pappardelle.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
