Lasagna is a very practical Italian dish that surprises with many possible filling options and flavor combinations. Lasagna is unfairly considered too difficult to prepare; in fact, all of the lasagna elements – dough, béchamel sauce, and filling – are easy to make with the ingredients you have at home.
The classic lasagna dough recipe consists of two ingredients – flour and eggs. In modern cuisine, a pinch of salt is added to the dough – in this case, the taste (salinity) of the finished dish is more uniform.
Lasagna Sheets Recipe
Ingredients (for a 30x20 cm mold, 6 servings)
- 200 g Wheat Flour
- 2 Eggs
- A pinch of salt
- Mix flour and salt put into a bowl, add the eggs to the flour and begin to knead until the ingredients combine. Add 1 teaspoon of water if needed. Transfer the dough to a floured table and continue kneading until you have a smooth and dense dough. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap with cling film and let stand for 30-40 minutes in a cool dry place (not in the refrigerator).
- Divide the dough into 4 pieces, roll each into a ball. Then take the first one, place it on the table, and roll it into a sheet about 2 mm thick. Once you made all the sheets, cut them into 8 large rectangles about 15x20 cm in size. Cook the sheets, one at a time, in boiling salted water for 1 minute, then remove to a baking sheet lined with a clean dry towel. Important! Lay the sheets without overlapping to prevent them from sticking together. Lasagna sheets are ready (use them immediately).
