An oldie but goodie, lasagna is mentioned in Medieval texts, and it is even said that the ancient Romans prepared a similar dish. Modern day lasagna comes from Emilia-Romagna, where the traditional recipe includes layers of ragù, béchamel and Parmigiano-Reggiano. But for the lasagna that comes from your house, use any fillings you like, traditional or not. These are long flat lasagne noodles with fluted edges. They do need to be pre-cooked before layering them into a lasagna dish. For a super silky cream or bechamel-based lasagna, also try Egg Lasagne Sheets from Rustichella d'Abruzzo.
About the Producer: In 1929, Gaetano Sergiacomo started making rustic pasta using the whole wheat flour produced at his family’s stone mill in the small town of Penne in Abruzzo. In 1981, his daughter, Nicolina Peduzzi, decided to revive the pastificio (pasta factory), naming the new product line Rustichella d’Abruzzo. Soon after, Nicolina’s adult children Gianluigi and Stefania joined the family business, and within a few years, the small pastificio had grown into one of the most extensive artisanal pasta lines in Italy. Today, Rustichella d’Abruzzo offers a diverse selection of pasta, pasta sauce, holiday goods and more.
