Making Lasagne




We are a bunch of Western Culinary Institue students showing everyone a great way to make lasagne. There is no real recipe just assembly instructions. Lasagne is an Italian dish consisting of wide noodles, marinara sauce, vegetables (optional), meat (optional), and lots of cheese. We are going to walk through the making of a vegetarian lasagne and one with ground beef.

Step 1: Find the Freshest Ingredients You Can.

When making a good lasagne find some fresh vegetables for the best results. Mainly find some potent garlic, basil, and onions which will allow for that true Italian flavor to come through.

Step 2: Making the Dough

For fresh pasta dough use this recipe:

Step 3: The Sauce

Step 4: Preparation of the Vegetables

You will need to:
Destem the fresh spinach.
Cut the eggplant 1/2"x1/2"x5", leaving the skin on.
Julienne the peppers and shitake mushrooms.

Step 5: Assembly

Put down a layer of sauce in a 9"x11", then put a layer of noodles, fallowed by a an inch layer of cheese. Next put in you r fillings half the eggplant, mushrooms, or ground beef. Cover in sauce and put down another layer of noodles. Layer an inch of cheese on the noodles then put the spinach, peppers and the rest of the eggplant. Top with cheese and chopped herbs (rosemary, thyme, and basil)

Step 6: Baking and Plating

Bake at 375 degrees for forty minutes, until browned on top. Serve with toasted baguette

    here in the Philippines we don't usually have those ingredients at hand, so we substitute things for other stuff. like, instead of ground meat, try using corned beef. or, we usually add hotdogs to our bolognese-type sauces (a favorite among kids). lately i've invented a recipe where i use NO meat at all in making meatballs and burgers (i use oatmeal)- and it still tastes like the real thing. nice instructable, though, the pics look really yummy... hehe... and lasagne's my favorite too

    Too vegetarian and unfulfilling. Who doesn't like good old fashioned meat and cheese approach?

    It's not REAL lasagna unless there are at least three layers of noodles! You don't talk much about the cheese. It looks like you're using all mozerlla, which is more or less to MY taste, but traditional lasagnas usually have a lot of ricotta as well. Lasagna is one of those things where you can expend LOTS of "additional" effort for only an incremental improvement in the results (IMO.) You can make an acceptable lasagna with sauce from a bottle, dry noodles, and your favorite mix of cheeses; Just layer them all and cook (no need to pre-cook the noodles.)
