Bolognese Rice Gratin
When I run out of idea and energy, and when I got a ready made bolognese sauce in our fridge and some rice, I make this dish.
Just mix rice and bolognese sauce and top with white (Béchamel)
sauce to heat in the oven.
Direction of Béchamel sauce for small amount
1) Melt 1.5 tablespoons of butter in a pan over small temperature.
2) Add 3/4 tablespoon of flour and mix well with spatula till the batter gets smooth then turn off the heat.
3) Add 200cc of fresh milk bit by bit. Each time when adding milk, mix well with the batter to avoid lumpy texture.
4) Once mix all portion of milk, warm up the batter over small heat until becoming to nice, slightly runny sauce.
Instead for using rice, thinly sliced potato is also nice. Before adding the bolognese sauce, microwave the potato slices for 3-4 minutes to cook.
Total time to prepare: 10 minutes
