1. Finding the right Pasta Casserole!

To make the selection easier, I have prepared a practical overview after the event and occasion.

Next we want to have a quick look at the #blitzschnellfertig the quick version…

I think this can be a pleasure or a stimulus to cook yourself. Gourmets don’t shy away from any effort!

2. Prepare simple Lasagne

You’ll please help yourself to the supermarket shelf for the great ready-to-serve sauce offer.

Alternatively, you can use already prepared, homemade and frozen sauces.

Make your own sauces and freeze them, it tastes better than ready-made sauces, just in case, you’ll find a quick variation here…

Since I don’t know the capacities of your freezer, I always assume the worst case: That means yawning emptiness.

The casserole with two sauces tastes best even cooked.

2.1 Quick and Easy, my Casserole Tips

The ingredients:

  • Ragout Bolognese from the glass
  • Tin tomatoes or fresh tomatoes
  • Bechamel sauce from the package
  • Noodle plates
  • Cheese
  • Fresh basil or dried herbs
  • Optional garlic

Depending on whether you were able to buy a white or a black belt in the kitchen battle so far, you will need 15-20 minutes to insert this pasta bake.

The Italian fake slice will be in the oven in 15 minutes and “ready to eat” after 45 minutes!

Wait a minute, there was something else – please think of the surrounding. A good craftsman needs his tools:

The kitchen tools:

  • Oven dish
  • Pots for sauces
  • Oven
  • Optional cheese grater if you buy the cheese in one piece
  • Knife, ladle, cutting board, spatula, dishes and cutlery

You’re wondering now why I mention dishes and cutlery?

If you’re starting a new job in a company and you’re making a debut dinner for colleagues, please check the inventory list in the office kitchen. After all, the casserole is not finger food!

The next thing we want to do is approach the classic method of preparation with homemade ragout and b├ęchamel sauce.

3. Lasagne Minced Meat Sauce and Make White Sauce Yourself

3. 1 Minced Meat Sauce Tips with Cooking Video:

For the classic of the Italian Mama-Cucina you definitely need two sauces. There is no way around it.

Nevertheless I would like to show you some great tips and at the same time refresh your knowledge and give you some good suggestions.

Therefore I have inserted here the cook video of the preparation for you. Watch me cooking over my shoulders, the video takes only 15 minutes.

Have fun!

3.2 B├ęchamel Sauce Tips

The classic b├ęchamel sauce consists of onions or shallots (finer in taste), bay leaf and peppercorns, butter, flour, dry white wine, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

The preparation of the sauce I show you below with many photos. Since I am the cook of your confidence, I have still another tip… this you experience in the contribution to the Bechamelsauce.

First of all a hint ­čÖé for you I simplify the preparation of the sauce and show a great trick that also works with miracle pots simply. This saves time and last but not least this light sauce is gluten free!

4. The right Baking Time does not exist!

The baking time depends on several factors:

  1. Many stoves do not reach the set temperature, so it takes (usually) longer.
  2. Depending on the number of layers of pasta, your casserole will be higher or lower, and the cooking time will change accordingly.
  3. If you fill the sauces hot and cook the casserole immediately, the cooking time will be faster.
  4. If you precook the pasta plates, the cooking time is reduced.
Lasagne Nudel Platten

The dried lasagne sheets require a longer cooking time. A fast pasta bake is possible with pre-cooked pasta plates.

The standard value for a normal casserole dish filled with dried pasta plates is 45 minutes. The chef recommends a cooking level of hot air and a temperature range of 175┬░C.

When is the noodle cooked in the casserole? Pierce it with a wooden skewer… if it’s easy, it’s time to eat.

You can serve the lasagne directly at the table or in the kitchen on warm plates.

5. Here you can find a Vegetarian Variation

Mhhhh, veggie casserole tastes super delicious … above I have already linked you a fast and tomato variant.

Here follows the announcement for another recipe!
