Lasagne Alla Bolognese
- Butter, for the pan
- 1/2 batch Bolognese Sauce, recipe follows
- 1 1/2 (9-ounce) boxes no-boil lasagne noodles
- Besciamella, recipe follows
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
- Extra-virgin olive oil, for serving
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Butter the lasagne pan well and add a very thin layer of meat sauce.
Add the first layer of lasagne noodles and in order, cover with meat sauce, about 3 ladles besciamella, and a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Repeat the same process until you reach the top of the dish. Make sure the lasagne noodles are soaking into the sauce.
When done layering the ingredients, top the lasagne with a final ladle of meat sauce and some besciamella, add a few thin slices of butter and finish with some grated Parmesan.
Bake for about 30 minutes.
Heat a broiler. When your fantastic lasagne alla bolognese is cooked, give it a nice crisp top by broiling it for about 5 minutes.
Always serve this dish with extra-virgin olive oil and some grated parmesan, to taste.
