One very important and very basic step that you’d need to master about all Italian recipes of lasagna are the types of noodles that you’d be using won’t really matter and also the steps in its layering or assembling is really the very same like all the different types of lasagna noodles.
If you want an original Italian dishful of lasagna it’s actually better that you’d make use of a very simple and basic bechamel sauce rather than using any complicated cheese sauces. It’s also better to make use any 13×9 inch ceramic, metal or glass dish for your lasagna so your lasagna sheets are able to just rest easy at the pan’s corners and of course before baking your lasagna, better grease them first.
Here’s an easy way of making a really original Italian style lasagna. This is assuming that your noodles & sauce are already ready.
1) Start by spreading sauce at the very bottom of the pan your desired sauce. This is to make your bottom portion really moist and not dried out. I do suggest that you prepare a really chunky sauce because this is going to be great for your lasagna.
2) Start layering your lasagna boodles crosswise. Make sure that you’re using first the whole sheets first. After arranging the 1st layer, spread your sauce out evenly then after that, spread a layer of bechamel.
Be sure to be generous and evenly spread out your bechamel. Do around 4 layers or more depending on how much noodles you’re using. If there are some broken ones, then be sure to place these noodles in your middle layers so they will not be visible.
3) For your topmost layer, this is the 1 layer where it must be slathered as well as generously covered using lots of bechamel and cheeses. First would come your last layer of lasagna sheets followed by your meat-based or vegetable-based sauces.
Then a generous spread of bechamel and finished with grated cheeses. Don’t forget that you shouldn’t place any big slices of veggies or meat at its top because they’ll only get dry during cooking.
4) 1 final tip is always to remember – lasagnas are baked ’til its top will turn in quite a few places and sauce bubbles all throughout your pan.
Another way to ascertain doneness is by sticking a clean knife in your lasagna’s center and leaving it stuck there for some seconds and when you’ve pulled it off and its hot, then your lasagna has cooked already.
After lasagna’s finished cooking, just take it out from your oven then allow it to rest and set for a few minutes prior to serving it to your guests. Be generous with your sauces and cheese for a great lasagna that’s really cheesy and creamy too.
