Step 1

Here are four easy steps for the perfect open lasagne bolognese:

Step 2

Sauté the celery, onion and carrot in a skillet over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil and the bay leaf. Once they have turned golden brown, add the lentils and cook over medium-high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the red wine, cook until the wine evaporates completely, then lower the heat and add the tomato paste. Add 2 cups water (or enough water to cover the meat mixture) and cook slowly over low heat for at least 20 minutes. Discard bay leaf.

Meanwhile prepare the béchamel: melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan. To make a roux, add the flour and whisk butter and flour together for 3-4 minutes over low heat, until smooth. Heat the milk in a separate pan, then add it to the roux, pouring it in a slow stream. Adjust the salt, season with a bit of nutmeg, and continue cooking, whisking constantly to avoid the formation of lumps, until the sauce is thick and creamy. If the béchamel is too thick, add a bit of milk. If it is too thin, let it cook for a few additional minutes. Heat the oven to 425°F.
