1 Preheat oven to 190°C. Lightly spray a large frying pan with oil and place over a medium-high heat. Add mince and cook for 6 minutes, breaking up with a wooden spoon until cooked. Add pasta sauce and water. Simmer. Add frozen vegetables and heat through until just warm.
2 Meanwhile, spray an 8-cup-capacity rectangular baking dish with oil and line base with lasagne sheets (enough to cover bottom). Spread over one-third of the mince mixture and then one-third of the tomato soup. Top with more lasagne sheets and continue layering with one-third mince, one-third sauce and lasagne sheets.
3 In a small bowl, combine ricotta and milk until smooth. Spread over top of lasagne, sprinkle with cheese and cook for 30-35 minutes until golden. Serve.
