This day is the day of Carnival here. It's not a national feast but most fabrics etc do not work. We wanted to visit a great supermarket today just because I was in Salerno this morning and my husband has nothing to do. So, he came in Salerno and we went in Pontecagnano. There is a bee keeper in that town too and I wanted to buy pollen and could not find it in our zone.
On our return we saw the preparations for the carnival procession and here are the photos. As I just wrote, carnival is an event for children here.
In our house, the event of carnival is celebrated with Lasagna. I told you that there are plates that are prepared only for this or that event. Lasagna is a plate for carnival. My husband wanted that I cook it myself this year and it had to be so as he likes. The second day I remembered to make photos and will tell you how I cook it. It is not the right, classic receipe of lasagna. It's lasagna how my husband wanted it.
I have to say that he found a really GREAT lasagna (a sort of macaroni, we can call it so too), very fine sheets and good taste and... we don't need boil them before we want to use them. They go directly in the oven.
First of all we spread béchamel sauce and put the first sheet on it. Than spread ragout made maybe with cottage cheese with more tomatoe sauce as on my photo. I used all the sauce the first day and here is only what remained for the second day.
Second sheet, eggs, mozzarella, béchamel sauce, grated hard cheese (parmigiano reggiano in my case) and salt.
Than you have to repeat the ragout and béchamel layers. I had 2 and 2 this time.
Finally you put it in the oven for 15-25 minutes.
Believe me, this not classic lasagna receipe is goooooooddd...
