A personal homage to a region that I like very much, Campania, using two ingredients that I like very much: the pouring from Cetara and mozzarella di bufala Dop. In truth this lasagna is a bit’ a game about the hoax in many variations, Since I used mozzarella di bufala, Buffalo and buffalo milk butter concentrate to make bechamel. It's called Latterì: is a buffalo milk to 100% with a fat content of 18%. Since a few weeks I am working within a group of experimentation that is considering the versatility of the product and I'm learning how to handle it, because it has a very creamy consistency (closer to that of cream rather than milk) and a naturally sweet flavor. For some time I had discovered the burro di bufala, I use all the time, and now I'm appreciating this product that allows you to use less sugar and less starch in sweet and savory dishes brings delicacy and softness, with a unique and unmistakable flavour. The result is a very soft and gentle bechamel, with a delicate aftertaste unmistakable, that fits naturally with the flakes of mozzarella di bufala Dop. Crunchy crumbs of bread crumbs with pouring from Cetara, thyme and olive oil complemented the dish, very very easy to prepare. I made the sheets for lasagna at home, but you can also buy them: take those scratchy, they absorb the sauce. Servant this lasagna dish, After passing the plate a minute in the preheated oven and turned off, If we are at most 4, whereas if we're more the compose as a normal lasagna in single portions and, before serving, I add more flakes of fresh Buffalo mozzarella. Of course you can prepare this lasagna with the regular whole milk and using the usual doses for the bechamel. Bon appétit!
