LASAGNA RECIPE

Updated: Sep 21, 2019




Tonight, it’s Lasagna…wow!!! Lasagna is the most delicious and beloved Italian food on the earth. This classic Italian authentic, made with Béchamel & homemade red sauce. It’s cheesy, full of sauces, fresh ingredients, mouthwatering…. oh!!! I am falling short of words to describe Lasagna.


perfect bit

I always wanted to bake Lasagna. Because of its time taking process, I was just pulling my hands back every day. I constantly procrastinate baking it, because it takes a while. One day I decided to bake for my family. No one was around in the corner; I was all alone in the house. And it turned out AWESOME!!


Lasagna is all about layering, plenty of cheese, sauce, filling and assembling the sheets. So many additions you can add. The best part of making Lasagna is that you can customize it in any way you want.


Although it’s not a super healthy, but who does not love Lasagna? I love it.❤️❤️️ wonderful recipe, wonderful word “LASAGNA

Tips for making perfect lasagna


1. Feel free to use plenty of cheese.😉

2. Always better to use fresh ingredients, including fresh tomatoes instead of canned ones.

3. You can bake lasagna with veggies or as well as with meat.

4. You can add your favorite veggies, spices, herbs and types of cheese which you like.

5. It’s better to make Béchamel sauce and red sauce in advance, for quick assembly the day you want to bake lasagna.

6. Add tiny bit of olive oil in the boiling water while boiling lasagna sheets, to keep them away from sticking together.

7. You can use no boil sheets too instead of boiled one.

8. Adjust the recipe according to your taste and liking.
