1 Heat a frying pan and add oil. Gently fry onion for a couple of minutes. Add carrots, cover and cook for a few minutes on a medium-low heat. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add spinach to vegetable plate.
2 Reheat pan and add mince in 2 batches. Break up with a wooden spoon and brown thoroughly. Add vegetables. Pour in 1½ cans tomatoes (reserving 1/2 can) and bring to the boil. Stir ingredients together and break up tomatoes as they come to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for 8-10 minutes.
3 In a 1.5L capacity ovenproof baking dish layer base with bolognese. Combine the remaining canned tomato with milk. Drizzle a little milky tomato sauce over bolognese. Cover with pasta sheet. Repeat until you have 4 layers. Finish with a final pasta layer and spread the remaining milky tomato sauce on top. Sprinkle over cheeses. Cook in a moderate oven for 20 minutes or until slightly golden on top.
