Cuisine: Italian
Author: Sharon Sanders, ©
  • 1 recipe ragù alla Bolognese
  • 1 recipe pasta verde
  • 1 recipe salsa alla Parmigiana
  • 4 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • Unsalted butter
  1. Prepare the ragù alla Bolognese. This can be done several days in advance. Store the ragù in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Coat a deep lasagne dish with butter.
  3. Prepare the pasta verde; while the dough is resting, prepare the salsa alla parmigiana and grate the Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  4. To assemble the lasagne: Spread some salsa alla parmigiana and ragù over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. The sauces will not completely cover the bottom; there will be bare patches. Cover with a single layer of pasta sheets, overlapping slightly if needed. Trim pasta sheets with kitchen shears to fit the dish, if needed. Spread on salsa alla parmigiana and ragù. Continue layering; there will be 5 layers of pasta sheets in all. End by topping the fifth layer of pasta sheets with salsa alla parmigiana, ragù, and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  5. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil making sure the foil does not touch the top of the lasagne. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the sauces are bubbling at the sides of the dish. Carefully remove the foil. Broil 6 inches from the heat source for 3 to 4 minutes or until the top is golden. Remove and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
