Ingredients: (For 6 pax)
30-35 fresh crepes
3 large mozzarella
200g parmigiano reggiano
600g mixed pork & veal mince
½ onion (chopped)
Extra virgin olive oil
2-4 fresh basil leaves
Pinch of salt
Butter
1L fresh tomato passata
1 x egg for the lasagna filling

Utensils:
Medium size saucepan
Medium size fry pan
Knife
Chopping board
Non-stick tray
Small bowl

Method:
1. First, follow my recipe: How to make crepes to make your deliciously light crepes which will form the layers of your lasagne recipe.
2. Dice up 3 large balls of mozzarella into cubes and put them to the side.
3. Put the saucepan on a medium heat and once it warms, add the chopped onion. Let this simmer for a few minutes, then add the tomato passata.
4. Stir the sauce using a wooden spoon and leave to cook for approx. half and hour.
5. Place a medium size fry pan on medium heat and add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
6. Once this has begun to warm up, add in the mincemeat, breaking it down with a fork.
7. Sprinkle a few pinches of salt into the mincemeat and keep breaking it up. Let this cook for a few minutes or until brown.

Vincenzo’s Plate Tip: Don’t cook the meat for too long or it will dry out. Remember, it will have another chance to cook through in the oven!
8. Line the baking tray with butter using a single cube to spread it all over. This will prevent the lasagna from sticking to the tray when it is cooking.
9. In a separate bowl, crack an egg and whisk well. Then, add 2 x pinches of salt and 50ml of milk. Mix once again.
10. Once the sauce and mince have each started to cool, you can commence assembling the lasagna.
11. Before you start assembling the lasagna, pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celcius.

How to Assemble the Lasagna Recipe:
1. Line the bottom of the baking tray carefully with your freshly made crepes. Then, line the sides of the tray with another set of crepes, making half cover the side of the tray, and the other half should then fold over the edge.
2. Add as many crepes as you need to ensure there are no spaces uncovered!
3. Sprinkle lots of cubes of mozzarella onto the bottom of the baking tray, then add a few large spoonful’s of tomato sauce.

Nonna’s Tip: Be careful not to use too much sauce as it will make the lasagna recipe very soggy!
4. Using a spoon, add some mincemeat to this layer, sporadically – it doesn’t have to be too much.
5. Next, add a generous amount of grated parmigiano cheese …and keep adding!
6. Dip a crepe into your egg milk mix that was prepared earlier and then let the excess drain off.
7. Place this crepe on top of the first layer, then dip another crepe into the mix and use it to create your first layer.
8. Repeat steps 3-7 until all your crepes are finished (or your lasagna is so tall it is the height of the tray!)
12. On every second layer, add a few small cubes of butter as this will help to keep the ingredients moist once the lasagna recipe is cooking in the oven, and it also adds extra flavour!
13. Once you have reached the final layer, fold the crepes that were over the edge, back on top of the lasagna, covering it up nice and tightly.
14. Using a large spoon, drizzle extra tomato sauce on top and spread it thinly – don’t pour it on as it will make the lasagna soft and wet – and add a few extra pieces of mozzarella cheese on top.
15. Make up to 6 slits through the lasagna using a sharp knife and pour a small amount of the egg/milk mix into each one. This helps the lasagna recipe to cook through really well.
16. Cook the lasagna in the oven at 180 degrees celcius for approx. 1hr.

How to Serve:
Let it rest for just a minute or two, and then cut up as many slices as you like to share with family, friends, and by now, your own HUNGRY belly!

E ora si mangia, Vincenzo’s Plate…Enjoy!

Using one egg, crack open the top only so that just a small part of the egg shell breaks.\n2. Pour the egg into the mixing bowl and put the larger piece of the egg shell to the side to use later on.\n3. Crack open the other eggs as you normally would and add them to the bowl.\n4. Using your whisk, best the eggs as much as you possibly can, for at least 5 minutes.\n5. You should notice small bubbles form on top of the eggs.\n6. Get the egg shell which you put aside earlier, and wash it out.\n7. Fill the egg shell with water and add this to your eggs. Repeat 4 times.\n8. Mix your eggs once again.\n9. Add a generous pinch of table salt.\n10. Mix once again for another 3 minutes!\n11. Add a portion of the flour and mix well.\n12. You will need to judge the texture as it needs to be nice and smooth without being runny. It has to have an element of density to it.\n13. The amount of flour you need will be based on the size of the egg you use and also the freshness as in Italy, I used to use farm fresh eggs and they were huge!\n14. Using a large deep spoon, scoop up the mixture and pour it back in, to see if you are happy with the result.\n\n✔Keep reading the recipe on my website: http://www.vincenzosplate.com/recipe-items/how-to-make-crepes/\n\n————————————————————————-\n\n✔Subscribe to my YOUTUBE CHANNEL http://www.youtube.com/user/vincenzosplate?sub_confirmation=1\n￰゚ヨメLIKE ME ON FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/vincenzosplate/\n✔FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @vincenzosplate https://www.instagram.com/vincenzosplate/\n✔FOLLOWM ME ON GOOGLE+ https://plus.google.com/+VincenzosPlate/posts\n✔FOLLOW ME ON LINKEDIN https://au.linkedin.com/in/vincenzosplate\n✔FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER https://twitter.com/vincenzosplate\n————————————————————————-\n\n￰゚フヘJoin my Italian Tour in July 2017 and discover the secret gems of Italy with me.
