Ingredients:

  • 500 grams of dried lasagne sheets

FOR BECHAMEL

  • 1 Liter of milk
  • 1 Pinch of Nutmeg
  • 1 Pinch of Salt
  • 100 grams of  Butter
  • 100 grams of Flour

FOR THE PESTO CREAM

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 50 g Basil
  • 70 g  of Parmigiano Reggiano to be grated
  • 1 pinch of Salt
  • 30 g of Pecorino to be grated
  • 100 g extra virgin olive oil
  • 15 g pine nuts

FOR THE FILLING OF RICOTTA AND SPINACH

  • 500 g Ricotta
  • 500 g Spinach
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 20 g extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 g pine nuts
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 250 g smoked scamorza

Preparation:

  1. Start from the pesto cream by choosing the best basil leaves, wash them and dry them with care, pour it into a mixer with pine nuts, then add the oil and parmesan and then smooth until you get the pesto cream.

  2. Then go to the preparation of the béchamel. Pour the flour on the melted butter and mix well with medium flame (until it has a hazel colour). Then pour the milk previously salted and flavoured with salt and grated nutmeg. Continue cooking slowly, stirring vigorously for another 5-6 minutes (do not burn on the bottom) until the béchamel will not thicken.

  3. Rinse the spinach well and then pour into the pan (where before you let brown the garlic with the olive oil) by cooking them over high heat for a few minutes, just long enough to soften them.

  4. Let us go to the lasagne composition: grease a rectangular baking tray with very little oil and then pour a bit of béchamel.

  5. Add a spoonful of pesto, then distribute it over the entire surface and finally lay down a first layer of lasagne sheets to cover completely the base of the pan.

  6. On the pasta add a bit of béchamel and after having distributed well, add pesto again to obtain a uniform layer and then add the spinach.

  7. Mix the ricotta with a fork trying to disassemble it and then pour it over the pasta, and then add grated parmesan, salt and pepper.

  8. Divide into pieces the smoked scamorza and pour over lasagne.

  9. Repeat the whole process again (starting from the pasta) until you get 4 layers of lasagne.

  10. On the last layer pour the pine nuts and then bake in a pre-heated static oven at 180°C for 20 minutes (OR in a ventilated oven at 160° C for 10 minutes).
