Lasagna Bolognese

There are times when you need to prepare a dish the day before a party or need a dish that will last the whole week for the family and is delicious every night and easy to warm up.  This is my go to dish.

Lasanga Bolognese is always a huge hit.  You can prepare it the night before and all you need to do when the party arrives is heat it up.  Or you can prepare this during the weekend and depending on the size of your family it will last all week for dinner.  And the great thing about this dish, it gets better each night.

I know it takes a while to prepare due to the cooking of the Bolognese sauce but at the end of the day it is worth it, and you will not regret it.

Lasagna Bolognese

Yields: 8-10 people | Prep Time: 60 minutes | Cook Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

One Set of Bolognese Sauce
15 oz Ricotta cheese
6 oz of fresh spinach
1 egg
1 lbs fresh mozzarella Cheese sliced
8 oz parmesan Cheese grated

Prepare a batch of Bolognese Sauce.

Set oven to 350 Degrees.

Bring a large, wide pot of water to boil with salt and a splash of oil, that will help keep the noodles from sticking together as they drain. Add the lasagna noodles and cook for 10 minutes.  Drain and set aside.

Then using a separate bowl make the ricotta mixture but using all the ricotta, adding the egg and then salt and pepper.  Stir well and set aside.

Then prepare the fresh spinach but adding some olive oil and spinach to a pot and sauté for a few minutes.

Assembling the lasagna – Start by putting some sauce at the bottom of an 9×13” pan so the past will not burn to the bottom and then layer with pasta.  Then add a layer of ricotta/egg mixture and add the all the spinach on top of that.  Then add a layer of the meat sauce and all the mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with parmesan on top of that.

Then another layer of pasta, ricotta and meat and end with the remainder of the parmesan cheese at the top.

I do not overlap my lasagna, but I will cut them so they fit perfectly in the pan.

Cook for about 45 hour min with cover and 15 minutes without cover.

Let sit for 15 minutes before serving.

    I agree with you Lasagna somehow tastes better when you prepare it the night before. This is very similar to the one I grew up with … since then stopped eating red meat but still make a vegetarian lasagna (recipe on my site), you may like to try that. Very nice photos, I can see why your Lasagna is always a great success!

    Vegetarianism can be adopted for different reasons. Many object to eating meat out of respect for sentient life. Such ethical motivations have been codified under various religious beliefs, along with the concept of animal rights. Other motivations for vegetarianism are health-related, political, environmental, cultural, aesthetic or economic..^^^
