Lasagne is made up of layers of pasta, béchamel sauce and a meat-based sauce (called ragù in Italian). The lasagne that Italian children eat may be slightly different from what you might be used to – they expect a slice of lasagne to stand up on the plate and hold its shape. This recipe shows you how to make lasagne the Italian way.
