"Lasagna is my favorite dish and, to be honest, who doesn't like it? Classic Italian lasagna is a simple recipe and consists of three simple components: pasta, creamy béchamel, and bolognese sauce. The most important part here is to give all three enough time to develop all their flavors. Bolognese especially needs to simmer for some time, at least 1 hour. The only thing that might differ between traditional lasagna and my take, is the added Parmesan cheese between the layers, but for me, to make lasagna without it just wouldn’t be possible."
