  1. Using kitchen scissors, snip the lasagne sheets into smaller squares and drop them into a mug. Cover with boiling water and set aside to soften for 5 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, mix both the grated cheeses together. Reserve a little for the topping, then mix the rest with the ricotta and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Drain the pasta and, in a separate, large microwave-proof mug, alternately layer the pasta, spoonfuls of bolognese sauce, the ricotta mix and pieces of bacon.
  4. Cover the mug with clingfilm, then pierce it with a fork. Microwave on high for 3 mins. Remove the clingfilm, sprinkle the reserved grated cheese on top and serve.
