Minced meat gravy in between layers upon layers of thin dough, topped with a burnt crispy cheese layer on the top, served freshly baked from an oven — lasagna is a popular Italian dish commonly found in many Western restaurants. Contrary to popular belief, lasagna didn’t originate in Italy — it actually originated in ancient Greece centuries ago. Lasagna is derived from the Greek word ‘Laganon’ which is the first known form of pasta, used to describe flat dough that was sliced in strips. It used to be layers of pasta and sauce. Therefore, the name came from the method it was made, not for the ingredients it’s made with. Lasagna is a hearty and filling dish, it combines a variety of textures — gooey cheese, thick flavourful meat gravy and thin slices of baked dough and it all just melts in your mouth. Who could resist this mouth-watering dish?
Craving for lasagna but refusing to pay a hefty price for this dish at fancy Western restaurants? Make it yourself at home! Firstly, prepare the meat sauce by frying garlic and onion until fragrant, then adding in the minced meat. Opt for the poultry of your choice: beef, chicken or anything you prefer. Cook meat until it is brown, then add chilli sauce, tomato puree, chicken stock cube and water for a well-seasoned gravy. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Next, prepare the cheese sauce, the creamier the better in order to get that gooey, stringy cheese texture! Stir butter into flour until it turns slightly brown in a separate pan. After that, add milk, mozzarella and MAGGI® CukupRasa™ and stir until the sauce thickens. Proceed to arrange the lasagne sheets in a baking pan, spread the meat and cheese sauce generously before topping it off with the lasagne sheets repeatedly. Fill the baking pan up to the brim and use up all the ingredients! Sprinkle oregano and a bit more mozzarella on top for a final touch before baking it in the oven for 35-40 minutes at 180℃.
Once it’s done, open the oven and embrace the tantalising waft of cheese and meat! Let the lasagna cool before slicing and serving. Lift the serving knife up slowly to admire the wonderful cheese strings in between layers of meat and lasagna sheets, it’ll make a picture-perfect dish on social media. Enjoy this hearty and easy-to-prepare lasagna dish with your family!
