Italian Cuisine: Balance Your Taste And Health With Homemade Lasagna Recipe

Authentic Italian lasagna recipe with bechamel sauce: Are you looking for a deviation from the traditional Italian pizzas and pasta? If yes, then perhaps a healthy portion of lasagne can satiate your cravings. Layers of flavoursome gravy made with veggies, tomato puree, and pasta sheets mixed with cheese; that is how Italian cuisine experts would sum up lasagne. Known to be introduced in Italy (Naples), the legendary recipe has influences of Greece. Accustomed to the term ‘laganon’, which implies sliced strips of flat dough, the usual lasagne has undergone several modifications. While the first Italian lasagne was made with béchamel, Parmigiano-Reggiano and ragù spread within pasta sheets, several twisted versions have come up over the times.  

Here we are sharing our simplified version of this Italian speciality.
