How to make lean lasagna

  1. To prepare this fantastic lasagna, take the anchovies and rinse them under slightly warm water, then leave them to dry.
  2. Take a saucepan and melt the butter and oil, and also add the poached garlic and aromatic herbs.
  3. Let it flavor well, and after a few minutes add the anchovies. Cook until the fillets are perfectly melted and mixed with the butter and oil. Once done, remove the herbs and garlic and let your sauce rest.
  4. At this point, in a baking dish, arrange the sheets for the lasagna, alternating layers of anchovy sauce with grated cheese and flakes of butter.
  5. Complete with a generous layer of grated cheese and pepper. If you want, you can also finish with a light layer of bechamel .
  6. We conclude the recipe by cooking the lasagna. Cook them in the oven at 180°C for about 25 minutes , until they are au gratin.
  7. Once ready, let them rest for a few moments and serve while still hot. Enjoy your meal!
