I am a culinary graduate. I've always had a passion for food, and I love sharing that passion by showing some of my delicious recipes.

Today, I am gonna share with you guys a recipe I made yesterday. It is very simple to make and delicious. Also, it is going to fill you up for sure!

Mise en place


For meat:

  • Ground beef
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 small onion
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • parsley
  • 1tbls of vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1tbls ground oregano
  • 1tbls dried rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup of beer or any alcohol

The rest:

  • Gouda cheese
  • 4 yellow plantains


  1. For the meat, take the salt and pepper, mince the garlic cloves, chop up the parsley, add the oregano, and rosemary, add the vinegar, and onion. Mix everything into the meat and let it seat. Take a pan and heat it up with olive oil, once you see the pan smoking a bit add the meat and then add 1/2 cup of water and the beer then add the bay leaves. Once you see the water reducing add the tomato sauce and leave until the meat is cooked.
  2. While the meat cooks, start peeling your plantains and put them to boil in a pot with some salt. Cook for about 11mins. And when done smashed them with some butter (optional).
  3. Start shredding the cheese.

Building up

Once you have all of your mise en place ready. (In my case, I went to the supermarket and bought myself a small baking container which I used to make the lasagna). Start building up your lasagna. Take the smashed plantains and use that as your base, then on top add the meat and cheese. It's just like building a lasagna except with a more delicious twist. ;)


Don't forget

Of course I threw the lasagna in the oven for about 2 mins just to melt the cheese and make it look even more delicious.

In process

Final result
