Building the Foundation: best Italian lasagna recipe 

For those eager to recreate the magic of traditional lasagna in their own kitchen, here’s the best Italian lasagna recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Servings: 4 people
  • 1 pound fresh pasta sheets or 0.5 pound dry pasta sheets

Instructions:

  1. Place a scoop of bolognese sauce and a scoop of bechamel sauce at the base of your baking tray and spread all over the tray.                   a) If you are using a fresh pasta sheet you do not need to cook the pasta first.                                            b) If you are using a dry pasta sheet you need to boil the pasta first for about one minute.
  2. Place the first layer of pasta in a way the sheets exceed a bit the edge of the tray.
  3. Add one scoop of sauce and one scoop of bechamel. Mix them on the tray.
  4. Add two Tbsp of Parmigiano or Grana cheese and a couple of fresh basil to taste.
  5. Repeat the process for 4 to 6 layers.
  6. Cover the last layer with a generous amount of Parmigiano or Grana.
