Hey Alicia here with another ancestral recipe from Italy. And today's recipe is one that after I tasted it I couldn't stop thinking about. It was so good, I ate it from breakfast and lunch the next day (super healthy, I know). This lasagna was really that good. Thinking of it right now I'm tempted to go make it again.
Best Lasagna Ever
This lasagna is fairly simple and adapted from a recipe I found on Walks of Italy. It doesn't have a ton of cheese. It's swapped out with a delectable béchamel sauce, seasoned with a bit of nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Don't skip the nutmeg because it just adds this wonderful depth to the lasagna that makes it addicting. The ragu is stewed for an hour or more and the flavors develop making it so wonderful. And the freshly grated parmesan sprinkled on top is the perfect ending for this dish. If you wish you can add parmesan in the other layers, I didn't and I found it to be perfect. But make sure you use fresh grated parmesan because the Kraft stuff just won't cut it.
I made this in a 9x13 dish but if you make it in a smaller dish you could do more than 3 layers.
Please try this recipe! I honestly can't stop thinking about it. It's soooooooo good! Please try it.
