Pasta or Spaghetti
1/2 Pound of Ground Beef
Crushed Bread Sticks or Bread Crumbs
Two Cups of Milk
4 Tablespoons of Flour
Salt & Pepper
How to Prepare:
Boil water for the pasta, adding a pinch of salt and sprinkle of olive oil to prevent from sticking.
While the water is boiling, fry the diced onion in a sauce pan until golden brown then add the garlic and stir for a few minutes. Add the ground beef and cook until brown, adding a pinch of salt & pepper.
Whisk the milk and flour into a pot until blended.
Put the milk and flour on the burner at a medium flame and continuously whisk for 5-6 minutes until it becomes creamy.
Take a glass Pyrex oven sheet and grease it with butter.
Sprinkle some of the crushed bread sticks over the butter, creating a layer over it.
Take half of the pasta and spread it out evenly on the oven sheet.
Spread all of the ground beef over the pasta.
Add the rest of the pasta to the meat evenly.
Add the gratin sauce over the spaghetti evenly.
Sprinkle the rest of the crushed bread sticks on top of the sauce and some mozzarella cheese.
Pre-heat the oven to 425F/230C for 5 minutes and then put the dish into the oven.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese melts.
