Did lasagna come from Italy?

As early as Ancient Rome, the term “lasagna” referred to pasta in the form of a ribbon. In the 13th century, we find traces of lasagna as we know it today. An Italian cook, Gavius ​​Apicius, wrote a book in which he describes lasagna as layers of cooked pasta with stuffing on it.

The tomato was not added to the recipe until much later: indeed, at the time, there were no tomatoes in Europe yet. These were discovered by Christopher Columbus, , in the 15th century when he has discovered South America.

In Italy, lasagna quickly became a popular dish, and eventually came in other forms:

  • Green lasagna (lasagna verdi) is a variation of pasta to which spinach has been added. Depending on the recipes, different cheeses are used: most often ricotta, mozzarella or parmesan.

Our French Lasagna of Pouldreuzic recipe made with Hénaff Pork Pate will please all your guests.

The ingredients

  • 1 can of pork pâté Hénaff 260g
  • Paste sleeves for lasagna
  • 2 x 500g of meat bolognese sauce
  • 1 bag of grated parmesan cheese

Cooking Steps

  1. In a cake tin buttered, cover the bottom with paste sleeves 
  2. Cover with a little bit of tomato sauce with Pork pâté Hénaff sliced in very small cubes of 5 mm or mashed it with a fork. Add a little bit of cheese. Continue until the last layer which would be covered by the parmesan cheese. 
  3. If possible, let it cool down during 1 night in the fridge
  4. The next day, put the mixture in the oven at 180°c during 30min and reduce to 160°C for 30 additional minutes 
  5. Control the cooking by entering a knife in the lasagna. At the half of the lasagna, the blade must be very hot
