Lasagna Bolognese Recipe

Lasagna has generally come to mean some variation on the delicious red sauce, mozzarella, ricotta cheese combo that you see around most of the time, but it actually started out a bit differently.

This lasagna recipe features a bolognese that is more meat than tomatoes, and instead of cheese, the creamy goodness is provided by a traditional bechamel sauce. This makes for a lasagna that is somehow both lighter and richer than we’re used to.

This recipe includes steps for making your own pasta, and while it is really tasty and makes the lasagna something really special, it will be just as delicious, and a bit less daunting, if you use store bought lasagna noodles.

Either way, give this variation a shot. I think you’ll be quite pleased.
