Wash the chicory and cut it in pieces. Chop the onion finely and put it on a pan with some olive oil. Sauté the chopped onion and the chicory on medium fire till they become soft and light-brown. Pour a half glass of white wine into the pan. After one minute, turn off.

Prepare the bechamel sauce, or utilize the pre-prepared one. For further details, please go to the recipe of traditional Lasagna.

Tips for this stage

- Trevisano chicory (in Italian Radicchio di Treviso) is a spicy, leaf chicory coming from Treviso. A special technique ( named whitening) creates the dark red, white veined-leaves.

- The red endive can be utilised in place of Trevisano chicory.

Preparation of lasagna

If you utilize fresh lasagna pasta sheets, cook your sheets in at least one litre of boiling water with a pinch of salt for one or two minutes.

Take a rectangular baking pan. The dimensions of the pan must be compatible with the dimensions of your pasta sheets.

Grease the bottom of the pan with some olive oil and bechamel sauce. This will prevent the first layer of pasta sheet from getting stuck to the bottom of the pan while baking.

Make the first layer of pasta sheets. On this first layer of pasta sheet, spread some bechamel, some Trevisano chicory, some cheese, some Parmisan. Again, make a second pasta layer, and again, spread some bechamel, some Trevisano chicory, some cheese, some Parmisan. Go on with layers till ingredients are finished. The layers of pasta must be at least four. Usually they are six. Once got to the last layer, top with some bechamel sauce. Spread some grated Parmisan on the top of the filling.

Tips for this stage

- Be careful! pre-prepared lasagna cook faster, so check the time and the temperature on the box of lasagna.

According to the tradition, Lasagna is a first course. So, it is served after starters and before the main course. As lasagna is very rich, in modern diets lasagna is served as a main course, maybe with some fresh salad as side dish.

Medium bodied red wines are a good match for Trevisano chicory lasagna, especially the wines from Veneto like Cabernet Sauvignon.
