Lovely Lasagne! Thank you, Bunch for a fabulously useful sample. My family adore homemade lasagne and were thrilled that I had a reason to make one!
It had been a long time since I had last used dry lasagne sheets… I must confess to loving my refrigerated, fresh lasagne sheets a little too much!
This cute box of lasagne sheets with their distinctive and attractive blue and white packaging were found easily in the pasta aisle. I appreciated the smaller packaging as the sheets had less room to wiggle about and were therefore secure and safe in their box. The transparent window is also a welcome feature.
Upon opening there were no broken lasagne sheets. Hooray! The sheets fit nicely in my baking dish and the entire packet was the perfect amount for my family sized lasagne. I baked my lasagne for 40 minutes because of its size and also because I needed that golden, crunchy, cheesy top that my family adore. This was slightly longer than the packet recommended.
The resulting lasagne was delicious… and swiftly consumed (oops – sorry – no photo!) Where the lasagne sheets were thoroughly covered in sauce, they were soft without being mushy or overcooked. There were a few spots, however, that were still crunchy and chewy. I assume this is because they weren’t covered with enough sauce prior to baking (even though I was very careful during assembly). My lasagne held together well and didn’t fall apart when serving.
A blissfully short ingredients list.
A product of Italy. Although I prefer to buy an Australian product, the best pasta is supposed to come from Italy.
A good quality product available at a good price (although not the cheapest available either). I think I’ll be sticking with my Australian fresh lasagne sheets but appreciate the opportunity to try an alternative. Nevertheless, I’m sure this product will tick all of the boxes for many.
