Traditional Lasagne

This lasagne could not have turned out any better!! I mean just look at it! I used to make my lasagne with a topping of mozzarella thinking it would make the lasagne more cheesy and lovely and gooey than using a more traditional parmesan cheese topping. How wrong was I!??! The traditional done by the Italians should stay just how it is....duh, of course!

  • 1 recipe of Bolognese sauce
  • 1 recipe of Bechamel sauce
  • 3 large sheets of Fresh lasagne noodles (or 200g pre-cooked lasagne noodles)
  • 3/4 cup (70g) freshly grated parmesan cheese
- Turn oven on to gas mark 6 (400 F)
- Prepare lasagna sheets as per package instructions (if using pre-cooked kind). After they've soaked dry them on a kitchen towel, pat them dry on each side
- Start the lasagna with a layer of the noodle sheet(s) on the bottom of your baking dish, now a layer of 1/3 of the bolognese sauce, then a layer of 1/3 of the bechamel sauce. Repeat layers, finishing with the bechamel sauce. Top with the parmesan cheese
- Bake in the centre of the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden
- Remove from the oven and allow to sit for about 15 minutes before serving

Enjoy alone or with a side of caesar salad and some garlic bread.
This lasagne got me plenty of "mmmmmmm's", so the recipe will definitely be a keeper and repeated and repeated and repeated.....yumm!
