Buon Appetito

With my ragu sauce being a success I decided to tackle another recipe from Enrico's sister. Lasagna!

I went to the store to buy my essential ingredients lasagna noodles and béchamel.

I will include the recipe for the ragu and the lasagna.


1/2lb of beef
1/2lb of pork
1 carrot
1 onion
1 celery 
1Tsp garlic
Olive oil
Beef bouillon pkg
1 bottle of Passata *use half only
(tomato sauce found in Italian store)

Mince carrot onion and celery. Put in pan with oil and sauté. Add garlic. Mix in meat and than tomato sauce. Add bouillon and mix all together. Top with water and bring to a boil. Turn down to simmer and simmer with the lid on for 2 hours. After the 2 hours take the lid off and simmer for another 30 min uncovered.

I used non pre cook noodles. I didn't mean to buy them however it is what I bought :) 


Non pre cook noodles
Parmesan cheese

Grease your pan. I used a 9x13. Take the béchamel and spoon a ladle full on the bottom. Spread your ragu to cover. I used approx another ladle full. Add a layer of noodles. *add a ladle of béchamel and than another of ragu amd sprinkle with Parmesan. Repeat this step* until you reach 5 layers. According to the box is should say how long to cook. Mine was 20 min at 425'.

I usually do not like my own cooking but I have to pat myself on the back for this one. It was damn good!

 I would love for you all to try this and let me know what you think.
