Quick and easy lasagne recipe

We can all agree that pasta is delicious for a good reason. The combination of the meaty filling and chewy pasta is certain to put a smile on your face. Although it’s true that making lasagna from scratch might be time-consuming, it doesn’t mean you should avoid it. The key to a simple and delicious lasagne is simply assembling the ingredients and baking them. It’s a great meal for when you’re busy during the week but still need to feed your family.

Quick and easy lasagne suggestions

It’s possible to brown the beef mince beforehand, but because this is a fast dish, there’s no need to bother with layering the ingredients. To improve the pasta’s chewiness, make sure the meat sauce isn’t too watery. Be creative with the cheeses you choose, and try mixing some parmesan into the bechamel sauce. When the white sauce becomes thick and streaky as you whisk it, it is ready.

After a hard day, a family dinner should be simple and relaxing. This simple and easy lasagna dish is a perfect example of authentic Italian cuisine.
