There are several regional variations and many versions ranging from vegetarian lasagna to those with fish as with any traditional recipe. What I’m sharing with you today is the original recipe for traditional Emilian baked Lasagne alla Bolognese from my regional cookery book. It is a simple albeit laborious preparation and you will need some time to complete the various steps. First and foremost make an excellent Bolognese sauce with high-quality ingredients and allow it to simmer slowly. Then by hand cut the fresh pasta rectangles. You have the option of a green lasagna with spinach (as tradition dictates) or the traditional egg. In the absence of time you can purchase them from your favorite pasta factory. The secret to perfect baked Lasagna is to assemble in the pan when the toppings are creamy and very cold rather than liquid. In this manner they will perfectly blend with the layers of pasta Allow it to rest and cool after cooking so the slices can be easily cut Lasagne like Cannelloni the classic baked Pasta and the delectable Conchiglioni is the traditional first course of holidays Christmas New Year’s Sundays with the family, birthdays, and buffets You can make them ahead of time and store them in the fridge until ready to cook or bake them the day before and reheat them on the spot.
