I've got a bit of a lasagne obsession going on at the moment. It started in November and is still going strong. I think it's because of all the rainy weather we've been having and what in the world makes you feel cosier than a bowl of starchy, slightly sloppy pasta and a glass of red wine? Like Spag Bol and Shepherds Pie, it's one of those dishes we can all make well without the need for a recipe. I like a mixture of minced beef and minced pork with a few nuggets of pancetta or chorizo. In my book, William Rose's mince is the best around as it's so finely ground it almost dissolves as it cooks rather than settling into tough clumps like the supermarket stuff. I know you don't need a recipe but this one of Delia's is a classic and comes from the 70s.
