Some of the cheeses you’ll need to make this lasagna include Parmigiano Reggiano, mozzarella, and cottage cheese. 

To give the lasagna a more classic flavor, herbs such as basil, oregano, and garlic are thrown in. You can make this lasagna in less than 30 minutes so why don’t you give it a try?

Like any soup, this recipe is hearty, filling, comforting, and hot.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Layers Should A Lasagna Have?

Most lasagna recipes will ask you to make at least three lasagna layers. Anything less than that and it is widely accepted that you can’t call the dish a lasagna. If you opt for more than three layers, the maximum you should go with is five. 

Anything more than that is a bit excessive.

What Cheese Do Italians Use To Make Lasagna?

In Italy, most lasagnas are made using ricotta and mozzarella cheese. However, recipes vary across the country. Of course, individual preferences play a huge part in things too. Other ingredients used to make a classic Italian lasagna include meat ragu and lasagna sheets.

Should Lasagna Sheets Be Pre-Cooked?

No, you don’t have to pre-cook lasagna sheets before making your lasagna. Oven-cooking the lasagna sheets with the rest of your dish will offer the best results.
