Welcome to the GialloZafferano kitchen. I’m Sonia and today we’ll be preparing a pasta dish from the Emilia-Romagna region — Lasagne Bolognese
Let’s look at the ingredients we’ll need:
• 4.5 cups (1 kg) of Béchamel sauce
• 3 cups (1 kg) of ragu Bolognese — you can find the recipe on the GialloZafferano site.
• 1.5 cups (200 g) of grated parmesan cheese
• 1 pound (500 g) of fresh egg lasagne noodles
• Extra virgin olive oil
OK, let’s see how to prepare our Lasagne Bolognese.
Begin by getting a pan that’s about 8×12 inches (20×30 cm). Add a thin layer of olive oil and spread a spoonful of sauce at the bottom of the pan. This will keep the bottom of the lasagne from burning. After this, begin to lay down the sheets of lasagne. You can cut them to fit the size of your pan and use the trimmings to cover any space leftover. Now add a layer of béchamel, spread it out, and add another layer of sauce. Keep in mind that you’ll want to make about four layers including the cover, so measure your ingredients according to the room you have in the pan. Now, sprinkle with a layer of parmesan cheese. Go on like this with the other layers.
I’m finishing here with the last layer. Spread the béchamel right up to the corners, and finish everything with a layer of sauce. The last layer can get a bit more sauce than the rest. Give a generous sprinkling of the parmesan, and now we’re ready to bake the lasagne Bolognese for about an hour at 320°F (160°C).
Our Lasagne Bolognese is ready. Remember that after you’ve baked it, leave it to rest for at least 15 minutes so that the layers can settle, which will make cutting portions much easier. From Sonia and GialloZafferano, bye and see you in the next videorecipe!
