Here at My Kitchen Store our second favourite topic (other than kitchens ), is food! Soyesterday I decided to make a lasagna – and today I just HAVE to share the recipe with you because it was so good!
I love Italian food, but one of the things that makes authentic Italian so special is the depth of flavour – and you just don’t get that in most pre-packaged meals (even M&S lasagna struggles to really do it justice), but the one I cooked yesterday is totally delicious. Rather than re write it here, I’ve given the link below, but first of all I thought I’d say why it seems to work so well.
First of all, it’s not just mince, but an equal amount of Italian sausage that is used to add a really rich and slightly spicy flavour. Secondly, the herbs are a little more complex than usual – there’s the typical parsley and Italian herbs, but this one also has fresh basil and some fennel seeds too. And some sugar that adds a complimentary sweetness to the spicy sausage. There are also three types of cheese – ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan, which combine together to make yummy gooey, tangy layers between the pasta and meat. And finally the sauce is slow cooked for an hour and a half to make sure all the flavours come out fully.
It is absolutely gorgeous – and I have to say for me so far, it IS the best lasagna ever. Visit the site at www.mylasagnerecipe.com for all the ingredients and full instructions. Buon appetito!
