Autumn lasagna with pumpkin and sausage

To prepare lasagna with pumpkin and sausage, Finely chop the onion and powdered rosemary. Remove sausage from casing and make it into chunks. Brown the onion with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil until it is slightly wilted. Add the sausage and cook on high heat for 5 minutes, turning it over often, until it changed color. Add wine. Add the rosemary and cook for about 15 minutes, until the liquid is not dried. Adjust salt if necessary (the sausages are usually rather sapide, then tasted before) and pepper. Set aside.

Clean the pumpkin by removing the peel, the seeds and filaments and cut into regular pieces. Skip the pumpkin in olive oil with fresh sage, salt and black pepper. Bake for a few minutes, until it is tender but still firm, because in the oven will continue cooking.

For the bechamel: melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Heat the milk. Remove the pot from the heat and add the butter to the flour, little at a time, stirring to form a roux (compound) smooth and homogeneous. Pour slowly the hot milk, making it absorb before adding more and adjusting salt. Cook over low heat stirring constantly: the white sauce will thicken and will be ready when velero spoon and should not be too thick. Remove from heat and amalgamate a pinch of nutmeg and grated Parmesan walnut.

Cover the bottom of a baking dish with 2 tablespoons of bechamel and a few small chunks of butter. Top a first layer of lasagna sheets. Cover with a little pumpkin, sausage, bechamel, sliced cheese, two or three Sage leaves and grated Parmesan cheese. Continue for at least another two layers, completing the lasagna with a layer of bechamel (make sure to cover the paste entirely, otherwise the edges you will burn in the oven). Spread evenly over the surface of the lasagna Dop Parmigiano Reggiano and add some butter.

Cover the lasagna with pumpkin and sausage with aluminum foil and bake for about 25-30 minutes, then remove the aluminum and have a few minutes gratin in the oven, until the surface is golden lasagna. Let rest the lasagna with pumpkin and sausage for 10-15 minutes with the oven off and open door seeds, then serve immediately. Bon appétit!


MATCHING: In this recipe, the balance between sweet and salty is already given by the main ingredients: the pumpkin (on a low prevalence) and sausage (in salt prevalence). We choose, then, a pairing with a red wine, that does not prevail over both flavors and that accentuates neither sweet nor salty. The solution is found by interrupting the balance, with the introduction of a new taste element. To do this, We suggest a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Cerasuolo Doc, produced by Winery Marramiero. A medium-bodied red wine, fresh and with clear red fruit scent, in particular cherry. A wine, when served fresh and young, it is never intrusive, with a dry, clean taste, and who can be very pleasing to the palate, especially with these tasty lasagna.
