  4. Pour the ground vegetables and cook until carrot is tender (~5min).
  5. Add meat, let it cook a bit and then add the red wine (just enough to cover the meat, 1 glass should be enough but depends on your frying pan size).
  6. When red wine has been absorbed, add the stock cubes (or salt and pepper) and mix well.
  7. Add the passata di pomodoro, the concentrate tomato paste and the laurel leave. Cover the pan and let it cook in low fire until done (at least 1h).
  8. The Lasagna magic:.
  9. Heat oven at 170C (~340F).
  10. Rub butter all around the surface of your deep oven plate.
  11. Put a layer of dry lasagne pasta, one of bolognese, a bit of béchamel, a bit of the mozzarela di buffala and enough grated parmigiano to slightly cover the layer. Repeat until the oven plate is full (usually 3-4 layers). The top layer has pasta, then just béchamel and parmigiano on the top.
  12. Put in oven and let cook the time and heat the pasta instructions say (usually 170C/340F, 30 min, both up & down).
  13. Change to gratin mode for the last 5 minutes for an extra touch.
  14. If you can resist, leave it rest a bit after heating… Lasagna is better the more time the pasta has to absorb the bolognese ;).
