Did you know that the most ordered dish in an Italian restaurant is a lasagna? And do you know why? Because a good homemade lasagna takes time. You need to boil the water, cook the pasta, dry the pasta, prepare the sauce, prepare the béchamel sauce if you want any, and shred all the cheeses. So yes, a classic lasagna takes a lot of time. Between the job and the kids, our time is usually in short supply, so I keep trying to reproduce classical recipes in a way that would be faster to prepare.
There are still quite a few steps that need to be done, but wherever I could save time, I found a way without sacrificing the taste. I hope you will enjoy it as much as my family enjoyed it.
