Serves 4
Total Time
30 Minutes
250g of ricotta
25g of grated parmesan, plus extra for sprinkling
1 tbsp of milk
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 jar of tomato sauce
A handful of basil leaves
120g of mozzarella, roughly chopped
120g of pane carasau (from your local Italian deli)
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Combine the ricotta, Parmesan and milk, seasoning with some salt and pepper, and mix until creamy.

Step 2

Line an ovenproof dish with a little of the tomato sauce. Top with a piece of pane carasau, followed by another layer of tomato sauce, then a layer of the ricotta mixture. Scatter over a few basil leaves and some of the mozzarella.

Step 3

Continue making layers like this, until you finish all the ingredients up, ending with a final layer of tomato sauce, scattered with some mozzarella and topped with a sprinkling of grated parmesan. Bake in the hot oven for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat the grill to high. Once baked, place the lasagne under the hot grill for about three minutes, until golden brown and bubbling.
