I adore the Italian cuisine. Be it pizza, pasta, spaghetti, salads, different meats, etc. My family loves lasagne, but I should admit that I find it a little bit heavy to eat with all the tomato sauce and mince.
That is why I decided to surprise my loved ones and serve lasagne for dinner, but it looked more like a salad. I’ve used different vegetables, meat, cheese and eggs. It was very delicious and so satiating.
I am presenting my take on the Open Lasagne – a recipe that is very easy and quick to prepare, a dish suitable for the whole family or you can use it on your date nights 🙂
This recipe you can use and serve as the main and only dish for the dinner or use it as a salad to go as a side dish.
If you are serving it as a side dish, cut the lasagne shits in smaller pieces so that everyone to be able to dish out as much as they want.
My family enjoyed this dish very much. I hope you and your loved ones also like it enough to try it and find the ingredients you would most love to use.
Ingredients (serves 2-3):
8-10 lasagne sheets (the ones I’ve used were small)
50-80gr ham, cut in pieces
70-100gr cubes of cheddar cheese
200gr broccoli, boiled and cut in pieces
2-3 boiled eggs, grated or cut in small cubes
about 100gr sun-dried tomatoes, cut in small
I use sun-dried tomatoes in a sunflower oil marinade, because the tomatoes are moist and ready to use, and the oil infused with the taste of the sun-dried tomatoes is just gorgeous.
oil from the sun-dried tomatoes
You can add more of these ingredients, add different or omit some of the ingredients, just add what you would love to eat and have in the fridge. Last time I made this recipe instead of ham I arranged salami slices on top and some cherry tomatoes as well.
Prepare the lasagne sheets according to the packet instructions
Mine needed to be boiled in slightly salted water for 8-10 minutes.
While the lasagne sheets are cooking, prepare the other ingredients by cutting them in pieces ready to eat
When the lasagne sheets are ready, drain the water, cut them with scissors in ribbons (not too small) and start assembling the dish immediately
In each plate put the cut ribbons from 2 lasagne sheets on the bottom and some of the topping, season with a couple of tablespoons oil from the sun-dried tomatoes, black pepper and parsley
Add another layer – lasagne sheets, topping and seasoning
It’s ready! Enjoy this easy, light and super delicious dish.
You can serve it with your favourite white wine.
