Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat an add the pork and veal and cook, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon, for 5 minutes or until browned.
Reserve 2 tablespoons of the pasta sauce and add the remaining pasta sauce and 250ml (1 cup) water to the pan and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the liquid reduces and mixture is thick and then season and stir through the basil and now set aside to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, use the large end of the pie maker cutter to cut 16 rounds from the lasagne sheets and then use a 6cm cutter to cut 8 rounds from the offcuts (see tip).
Rinse the pasta rounds under warm water and ease 4 of the larger pasta rounds into the holes of the pie maker and place 1 tablespoonful of the pork and veal mixture in each hole and top with 1 teaspoon bechamel sauce and then place four of the smaller pasta rounds on top then continue layering with another tablespoonful of the pork and veal mixture and 1 teaspoon of the bechamel sauce.
Sprinkle each lasagne with 2 teaspoons of the cheese and top with 4 of the remaining larger rounds of pasta.
Turn on the pie maker and close and cook for 5 minutes.
Top each lasagne with a little extra cheese and 1 teaspoon of the reserved pasta sauce and cook for 3 minutes or until golden on top.
Transfer to a serving plate and repeat to make 8 individual lasagne and serve scattered with extra basil leaves.
