Do you like changes? I hardly do. But I don’t like repetitions too (ah ah doesn’t seem so!). We are not always prepared for changes, but we often want them. Being human is being inconsistent, very often. La natura umana è spesso contraddittoria, ondivaga. Molte volte non siamo pronti al cambiamento, ma non sopportiamo nemmeno la monotonia. Siamo portati al cambiamento, ma spesso ci spaventa. Che fare ? Be prepared. We should try to anticipate change or sometimes we can experiment and try to find ways toward it.
We look at classics and immediately think: how could this be better done ? Everybody know Sam Cooke original and Otis Redding’s version, but what about Aretha?
So today I wanted to make a simpler lasagna.
The original lasagna has bechamel in it, but I didn’t want either to make it or to go out and buy the ready one. So I made a cheese-lasagna. Prima di tutto dovete fare il ragù. First you have to make some ragù. So: brown some onion in oil
Add some chopped meat (pork and beef)
then add tomato sauce, some minced carrot and let it boil for a while. How long is a while ? Well… from 30 minutes on 😀 Ok quando avete fatto il ragù dovete tagliare unpo’ del formaggio che preferite, può essere mozzarella, Asiago o qualcos’altro che vi piace, non troppo saporito. * As you wait for the ragù to get cooked, you can cut the cheese (the kind you like, not one too tasty) and you start taking the pasta
You will have to boil it slightly, one layer by one, while you “build on” your lasagna
stain your oven pan with very little oil, then put pasta on the bottom and start putting some ragù on it
then add some cheese, then again pasta, ragù and cheese, until your last layer. You can top with some extra grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
In the oven at about 190°C for 15-20 minutes will do
and you will have a change that you can taste and compare
I also love Seal’s rendition, Leela James‘ one and, of course, Lauryn Hill‘s covering, but.. what about Greta Van Fleet ?? They sound different!
