The beautiful, rolling hills of Tuscany are home to countless vineyards and the region is fondly nicknamed ‘Chiantishire’ after the bold red wine that it produces in abundance. However, it is not only for its wine that this region is so well-loved. Tuscany is also famed for its sausage varieties which are characterised by their substantial, meaty texture and make a wonderful filling for any pasta dish. In this week’s menu we’ve incorporated the treasured salsiccia Toscana into our delicious lasagne, and we think it’s all the better for it.
Be transported to the winding streets of Florence, Tuscany’s capital and an enchanting Renaissance city, with our tasty al forno pasta. You’ll find rich sausage meat layered between freshly made sheets of lasagne and our creamy, signature béchamel sauce. This dish also pays homage to the culinary traditions of Calabria, a region in the far south of Italy, with the inclusion of tasty morsels of spicy ‘nduja sausage, adding a little spice to this indulgent lasagne. Finished with a generous smattering of Italian cheese this is a celebration of salsiccia in some of its finest forms.
