Lasagne Bolognese

I suspect there are as many varieties of Lasagne as there are towns in Italy.  I love Giada's version with Bechamel Sauce and spinach, but was craving something a little simpler at the end of the work week, so we made this with our tried and true Bolognese Sauce.  It was perfect comfort food with a salad and Kalamata Olive Bread (purchased at Vons).

Lasagne Bolognese
Make one recipe of Bolognese Sauce.  
While the sauce is simmering, put a pot of water on to boil and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together:
2 cups Ricotta Cheese
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon Italian Herb Mix
Set aside.

Boil 10 pieces of Lasagne pasta according to package directions (you will only need 9, but I always add an extra just in case!)

Assemble the Lasagne
Ladle enough sauce into the bottom of a deep 9 x 13-inch baking pan just to cover it.
Place 3 pieces pasta lengthwise on top of the sauce.
Pour reserved Ricotta mixture on top of pasta and spread evenly.
Place 3 pieces pasta lengthwise on top of the Ricotta.
Place half of remaining Bolognese sauce over pasta.
Sprinkle 2 cups shredded Mozzarella over Sauce.
Place 3 pieces pasta lengthwise on top of the cheese.
Then spread remaining sauce evenly.
Sprinkle top with shredded Parmesan Cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes.

Buon Appetito!

A most unusual rose


  1. That does look like the perfect comfort meal, Susan. And what an unusual and gorgeous rose!

  2. Looks and sounds great, Susan. I love bolgnese sauce and lasagne noodles are a lot more versatile than we routinely think. (I love a white lasagne, too.)

  3. This looks like the ultimate comfort food, Susan!

  4. I could never let The Dude see this post - or I am sure he would march me into the kitchen to get working on this :-)

    The rose is stunning.

  5. Just a perfect end-of-week meal, I agree. Did you and John open up a good bottle of wine with it. Does that rose have a name or is it an anomaly? The way this week is going, we could name it a "Long-and-Slow Rose". I hope this meal set up a wonderful and relaxing week-end for the two of you.

  6. Can I just say OMG! That looks so delicious...That is a comfort meal at the highest level.


  7. Classic meal! Looks super delicious!

  8. I am glad I ran over this recipe, I actually needed a lasagna recipe:)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you.
