Lasagna with meat sauce

Lasagna with meat sauce. Short but sweet and well combined ingredients: a thin egg puff, a grade and a soft sauce bechamel. My Bolognese Sauce (that is not a bolognese sauce) It is made according to the family recipe, with pork, beef and veal and bake for two hours at least: smells of Laurel, cloves, Juniper and red wine (good). The bechamel should be thick and dense. Is’ good that sauce and bechamel are lukewarm (or even cold) before dialing the lasagna: I always do at least 4 layers, then you need a high-sided baking pan.

You can compose the lasagna in the morning, cover with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to bake, or even deep crude preserving one month: When you decide to Cook, Bake at 180 degrees, covered with aluminum paper, without defreeze preemptively. I love baked pasta, and I suggest you have a look at all my OF LASAGNE OVEN-BAKED PASTA RECIPES and to find some goodies that inspire.

Obviously, I suggest you prepare the pasta for lasagna with meat sauce at home: is incredibly easy to do and incomparably more good lasagna buy. The mess of lasagna is the classic Sunday dish, lunch with relatives and I always prepare myself to people who want to receive with love. I want to clarify that this is not the classic Emilian recipe for lasagna, but I promise that sooner or later I also those. Save the recipe and have a look also at Pumpkin lasagna and sausage, at lasagne with broccoli and smoked cheese, at lasagna with artichokes, Caciocavallo and saffron.Have a good day!

Since you are Sicilians, I recommend a variation that I'm sure you will like: Once cooked, you can add a piece of ragusan ricotta sauce, stirring until mix it well with meat sauce, which will then be used to garnish the lasagna. A bomb!!!

Hi Mimmo! The sauce we do so always, When is a ground meat sauce for lasagna, but with this we do also the sauce to pies to little rings or baked pasta with Bolognese Sauce. Another thing is the meat sauce made with full touch and then wearing out the meat, We use for other recipes, or the meat sauce bolognese type that we do with milk.
