Ingredients(for four people)
Pasta sheets for lasagna: about 24 sheets
Diced ham steak: 200gr
Bechamel sauce: 1/2 litre
Grated Parmisan (about 40 gr)
Preparation of the filling
Mix together the diced hem with the bechamel sauce. Ricotta could be also utilised instead of Bechamel. Add some salt and pepper.
Preparation of lasagna
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. 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 of the filling (the filling must be as high as 3/4 mm and cover all the surface of the layer of pasta sheets) and then some grated Parmisan. If you wish, you can also spread some bechamel over the filling, but your lasagna will be heavier. Again, make a second pasta layer, and again, spread some filling and some grated cheese. Go on with layers up till ingredinets 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 mixed with the reminder of the filling. Spread some Parmisan on the top of the filling.
Bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Check lasagna sometimes; your lasagna are ready when there is a thin golden crust over there.
Tips for this stage
- Cheese must be Parmigiano reggiano (Parmesan). There is a similar Italian cheese, Grana Padano, but it is not exactly the same thing. However, if authentic Parmesan is not at hand, Grana Padano can work as well;
- 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 white wines like Muller Thurgau, which is produced near Trento (Italy), are a good match for white lasagna. An idea could be a light sparkling white wine like Prosecco.
