In my opinion, this Lasagne is the best ever – its has never failed me! The pasta is tender, the Bolognese sauce is full of flavour, it’s amazing – don’t just take my word for it, cook it and let me know! There is a secret to how to make it tender and tasty, but also remember, it is quite easy to make.
Now…. although lasagne isn’t the fastest dish in the world, we need to try to keep the time down to a minimum. Why work hard and spend ages in the kitchen when you don’t have to, life is too short, and besides, Lasagne is cooked in three parts so the last thing you want to do is add more time to the dish!
I’ve often heard that Italian chefs don’t use béchamel sauce on top, and I know the original dish comes from Naples but I need to do more homework to find out the full history of it.
I don’t know any one who does not love this beautiful dish – some find it hard work but if you make a large quantity you can enjoy it over a period of days as it lasts at least four days in the fridge, although not in my house – it disappears very quickly!
As you can see, it is running with sauce, not dry at all. I like to serve Lasagne with a lovely green salad or tomato and onion salad – Very refreshing.
