Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C.

  4. Brown the mince until completely cooked through, ensuring there are no lumps.
  5. Add passata and stir thoroughly.
  6. Turn back down to a medium heat for sauce to simmer and reduce for around 10-15 minutes.
  7. Make the white sauce by placing the ricotta, Parmesan and milk to a bowl. You may not need all the milk. Mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  11. Repeat this step making your final layer the white sauce.
