But a culinary queen like this when you decide to prepare at home, has need of some preparations in order to not be ousted.

Here are 6 tips for making an excellent Italian lasagna:

1. Home made pasta or bought?

If you decide to make the pasta entirely from scratch or buy fresh egg pasta, to avoid attacking the sheets between them you can put a thread of oil in water for boiling or boil the sheets one by one. If you buy the sheets packed and dry make sure you dress without leaving a space.

Whether you’re embracing your Italian heritage or just getting adventurous in the kitchen, learning how to make homemade pasta is a worthwhile pursuit.
