"One pot lasagna" is a culinary innovation that combines the traditional flavours of Italian lasagne with a modern cooking approach.

"One pot lasagna" is a culinary innovation that combines the traditional flavours of Italian lasagne with a modern cooking approach. This method of preparation has recently become extremely popular, mainly due to its simplicity and the minimal use of utensils. The concept of ''one pot'' dishes has gained popularity in the kitchen as people look for more efficient cooking methods that do not require a lot of time and effort.

Why is ''One Pot Lasagne'' so popular?

"One Pot Lasagna is ideal for quickly preparing a home-cooked, warm and tasty dinner or lunch. While traditional lasagne can take a lot of time and several pots to prepare, this method allows you to prepare the whole dish in one pot. It not only saves time, but also makes clean-up easier. This simple but effective method is ideal for busy individuals or families who want a delicious meal without the added stress and mess of the kitchen.

Lasagne pasta is a key ingredient in this traditional Italian dish, which boasts a rich history and variety in preparation. It is usually made from durum wheat semolina, which gives the pasta a firm texture and allows it to keep it from becoming too mushy during cooking. A characteristic feature of these pasta dishes is their flat and rectangular shape, which perfectly suits the plastic nature of lasagne.

Types of lasagne pasta

1. Pre-cooked Pasta: This pasta is already partially cooked and ready to use quickly. The advantage is that they do not need to be cooked separately before layering, which reduces the preparation time of the dish.

2. Uncooked Pasta: Traditional lasagne pasta which requires pre-cooking in boiling water. These types of pasta allow more control over the texture of the final dish, as you can determine how ''al dente'' you want the pasta to be.

How to choose the right pasta?

- For traditional lasagne, which requires more preparation time, uncooked pasta is ideal as it offers a richer texture and better absorption of the flavours of the sauces.

- For quicker lasagne variations, such as ''one pot lasagna'', pre-cooked pasta is an excellent choice as it reduces the preparation time.

Tips for use:

- When using uncooked pasta, pre-cook it in plenty of salted water until desired softness.

- Pre-cooked pasta often only needs to be soaked in water to make it more pliable before use.

- For an extra tasty layering between the pasta, you can add a variety of sauces, cheeses and fillings of your choice.

Lasagne pasta is more than just the base of a dish; it provides structure, texture and a framework for combining different flavours and ingredients to create the ultimate harmonious taste. Choosing the right pasta and using it correctly can have a major impact on the quality and taste of the lasagne as a whole.
