Lasagne alla Bolognese

Lasagne is the best known ‘pasta al forno’ dish, pasta that is prepared in the oven with a sauce. According to the Italians, the sheets of pasta should not be swimming in the sauce but should absorb all the moisture from the sauce. This results in a firm pasta that is easy to cut.

Serves around ten people.
