Considered as a first course, lasagna is for me a way of life, a work of art the foundation of Italy’s cultural heritage. A great tasty classic, this delight is suitable for any occasion: it brings hearts together, closes wounds. With the creaminess given by a delicate béchamel sauce, the enveloping taste of the meat sauce and the crispy crust that is created on top, lasagna is simply a spectacle.
There are many recipes, but this is the traditional version made with a Tuscan meat sauce par excellence. My years ago, my father thought of making it even tastier by finishing it with a drizzle of truffle oil and, since then, I have not been able to do without it. And you, are you are you ready to touch the sky with a finger, or better, with a fork?
