Lasagna alla Bolognese is a classic Italian dish that originated in the city of Bologna. It is a hearty and delicious meal that is perfect for sharing with friends and family.
The dish consists of layers of wide pasta sheets, Bolognese sauce made with ground beef, tomato sauce, and onions, and a creamy béchamel sauce.
The layers are then baked until golden brown and crispy on top.
Legend has it that the original recipe for Lasagna alla Bolognese was created by a group of nuns in Bologna who were famous for their delicious pasta dishes.
They used the locally available ingredients to create a hearty and filling meal that would sustain the workers who toiled in the fields all day.
Eggs, flour, spinach, salt, carrots, celery, onions, oil, cheese*, butter, milk, local herbs or spices.
And a process that typically starts early in the morning to be ready by lunch time.
*in Bologna, cheese means Parmigiano Reggiano.
