Lasagne di Zucchine with Homemade Basil Pesto (v.)

Lasagne has been enjoyed by Italians for centuries. The first record of lasagne dates back to Ancient Rome, but that primitive version is quite different from the kind we enjoy today. The first official recipe was recorded during the Middle Ages in Naples in Liber de Coquina, one of the oldest cookbooks to date. That recipe for lasagne describes a flattened dough layered with cheese and spices and eaten using a pointed stick.

Our modern version of lasagne features beautiful zucchini grown in the Italian sun and fresh, homemade pesto. Although we invite you to eat your lasagne with the utensil of your choosing, we'd certainly award you bonus points if you try it with a stick. Our homemade pesto is made fresh with oodles of basil, beautiful extra virgin olive oil & plenty of gutsy Italian garlic. We then layer our pesto and fresh zucchini perfectly between our hand-rolled lasagne sheets.

Ingredients: Besciamella sauce (Wheat Flour, Milk, Butter), Courgettes, Fresh pasta (Wheat Flour, Egg), Pesto (Olive Oil, Basil, Parmesan, Pine nuts, Garlic, Salt, Black Pepper), Mozzarella, Grana padano, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic, Thyme, Salt, Black Pepper

Garnish: Courgette pesto (Courgette, Pine nuts, Basil, Pecorino, Parmesan, Extra virgin olive oil, Salt), Parmesan
