never tried that Lasagne for no just reason. whenever its been prepared at home I just don't find the zeal to try it
Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:09pm On Jan 20, 2012
STEP TO STEP RECIPE FOR LASAGNA


Start with the following in a pot:


1 pound (450 g) of sweet Italian sausage
1 pound (450 g) of ground beef
1/2 cup (120 mL) of chopped onions
2 cloves of garlic chopped

The flavor of the Italian sausage varies from brand to brand. You may need to try a different brand the first couple of times you cook this dish. Find the flavor you like the best.

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:10pm On Jan 20, 2012
2) Brown the ground beef, Italian sausage, onions and garlic in a pot until they start to cook. It takes about 6 to 9 minutes to brown the meat. I like to use a Dutch oven to cook this portion of the recipe. I use a medium low temperature to brown the meat. It is optional to remove the grease from the meat once it is finished browning, your choice

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:10pm On Jan 20, 2012
3) Add the following:
1 (28 ounce) (784 g) can of crushed tomatoes
2 (8 ounce) (230 g) cans of tomato sauce
2 (6 ounce) (168 g) cans of tomato paste
1/2 (120 mL) cup of water

Gently stir this into the cooking meat.

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:11pm On Jan 20, 2012
4) Add the following:
2 tablespoons (30 mL) white sugar
1 teaspoon (5 mL) fennel seed
2 teaspoons (10 mL) fresh Basil leaves chopped
2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh Italian parsley chopped
1 teaspoon (5 mL) salt
1 teaspoon (5 mL) Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) ground pepper

Gently stir these seasoning into the sauce

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:13pm On Jan 20, 2012
5) Cover the pot and let the meat sauce simmer. Simmer on low heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes. This is the ideal simmer time but not mandatory. If you don’t have time it will still be great after one hour of simmering.

I will sometimes make this sauce and refrigerate it after it finishes simmering. I will use the meat sauce the next day to put the rest of this recipe together. For some reason Italian meat sauce taste even better the next day. But that’s up to you.



Soak 12 lasagna noodles.

The lasagna noodles need to be soaked in hot tap water for 15 minutes.

While the noodles are soaking you can make the cheese filling.

6) Put the following in a mixing bowl:

23 ounces (644 g) of ricotta cheese.
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) fresh grated nutmeg

Grate fresh nutmeg over the Ricotta cheese

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:15pm On Jan 20, 2012
7) Add the following:

1 egg
2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh Italian parsley chopped

Mix these ingredients together with a spoon



Now we start building the lasagna layers. (2ND PIC)

Use a 9×13 inch baking pan.
Spread 2 Cups (480 mL) of meat sauce on the bottom of the pan.

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:17pm On Jan 20, 2012
cool Remove your lasagna noodles out of the water bath. Shake water off wet noodles.

Lay 6 noodles across the layer of sauce.



Spread half of the ricotta cheese mixture over the layer of noodles (as shown in 2nd pic)

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:19pm On Jan 20, 2012
9) Spread 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese over the ricotta layer.
Sprinkle half of the Parmesan cheese over the mozzarella layer



10) Spread 2 cups (480 mL) of meat sauce over the cheese layer
Lay down the next layer of noodles
Spread the remaining ricotta mixture over noodles
Spread the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses saving some cheese for the top of the lasagna
Put the last layer of meat sauce on the cheeses
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by yme1(f): 12:20pm On Jan 20, 2012
11) Cover with foil
Bake in preheated oven at 350 F (177 C) for 25 minutes
Remove foil and bake uncovered for another 25 minutes.



12) Remove from oven and allow to cool for approximately 15 minutes.

FINITO!!!

Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by Ptolomeus(m): 6:46pm On Feb 29, 2012
In my country, to do lasagna the three layers of filling.
1. Mass at the bottom
2. stuffed with minced meat (as is indicated in the above recipe)
3. Another layer of dough.
4. cover with previously boiled and seasoned vegetables (spinach or chard)
5. Another layer of dough,
6. Top with ham and mozzarella
7. another layer of dough
8. On this last layer of dough is put the tomato sauce and bechamel above.
Finally add grated cheese
and to broil in the oven!
Re: Take A Break From Swallows Try Italian Dishes.see The Difference. by 3ndy(f): 5:13am On Jan 22, 2013
thank god i asked..
1st in the browning of the meat u add minced carrots and celery.
secondly once the fat melts outta d meat u deglaze with red wine
then u add the tomatoes.
u don't use ricotta cheese or anything
u use besciamella (technical term) made with oil or butter flour milk nutmeg and black pepper..
i mean the lasagna call it nigerian style lasagna.
coz italian lasagna is completely different
sources: lived in italy for 13 years and graduated at the school of culinary art.
