Lasagne al Forno Kabi

I haven’t had pasta dish for a long time now. My pasta machine must have felt neglected.

This is my take on of the classic Italian lasagne recipe. It’s easily feed 6 person which is a great dish to make if you need to feed a bunch of hungry friends.

for the Pasta

Check out my Home Made Pasta recipe to make your own.

Only go down to the 3rd thinnest setting on the machine when you’re stretching it.

Cut it into sheets (depends on your dish), and leave it on the air until we make the filling and the sauce. You can also dry and use them later.

Making the sauce

You will need a decent size stockpot for this dish.

Chop finely the onion, and saute them on olive oil on medium heat. Add the sliced garlic a bit of dried marjoram, oregano, chopped chilli and the tomato puree. Fry them for another 5 minute.

Add the mince steak and brown the meat. Pour the red wine to the meat, and keep it on medium heat whilst stir it occasionally.

Pour the chopped tomatoes in and cover with the lid, and leave it to simmer for 10-15 minute. Also pour the passata and all the spice with the worcester sauce and the sliced carrot. Stir it once and leave it to cook for 25-30 minute.

Taste it and when the meat and the carrot is tender, turn down the heat and stir in the milk. Season it, and leave it to simmer for another 5 minute.

Making the Cheese sauce

For the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a pan on medium heat.

Add the flour and stir it until you get a smooth mixture. turn down the heat and add the milk slowly whilst constantly stiring. You don’t want any lump in the sauce.

Mix the mascarpone cheese, lemon juice, a pinch of marjoram, grated nutmeg and salt as well.

It should be thick as a double cream.

Prepare for baking

Preheat the oven to 200C°.

Use a deep baking pan for the lasagne. Grease your heat proof dish and lay the first layer of pasta down. Scoop the meaty hot sauce on the top, and repeat it until you get to the last layer. Pour the cheese sauce on the top of the last layer of pasta sheet, and place it in the oven until the cheese sauce gets browned on the top,  approx. 15-20 minute.

You can also miss out the meat completely and use courgette, aubergine, and other vegetables to make a veggie lasagne.

Serve it with salad with balsamic vinegar, and garlic baguette if you’re not on a date.
