    Meanwhile, to make the bechamel, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Stir in the flour for 1 minute or until mixture bubbles. Remove from heat. Gradually add the milk, stirring, until smooth. Place over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the mixture boils. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly. Cover the surface with plastic wrap to stop a skin forming.

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Spread 1 lasagne sheet with one-fifth of the mince mixture. Drizzle over 2 heaped tablespoons of bechamel. Starting from 1 short side, roll up to form a log. Cut crossways into thirds and place, cut-side up, in a 5cm-deep, 20cm round ovenproof dish. Repeat with the remaining lasagne sheets, mince mixture and bechamel.
