Step 1

Step 2

To make the pesto sauce, blend the pine nuts and garlic in a blender. Add the washed and dried basil leaves and EVO without turning off the blender. Add half of the grated Parmigiano cheese (25 g), and the Pecorino cheese, and adjust the density by adding more oil if necessary.

  • Pine nuts
  • garlic
  • basil leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • grated Parmigiano cheese

Step 3

Peel and cut the potatoes into cubes, clean the green beans, and cut them into pieces. Boil the potatoes and green beans in boiling water until they're al dente, then drain.

  • Potatoes
  • green beans

Step 4

For the bechamel sauce, melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the gluten-free flour and whisk constantly to avoid lumps. Pour in the milk, which has been previously heated. Bring to a boil for a few minutes and adjust the salt.

  • Butter
  • Flour
  • milk
  • salt

Step 5

To assemble the lasagne, start by placing a bit of bechamel, pesto, green beans, and potatoes on the bottom of a baking dish and cover it with the pasta sheets. Repeat three more times until you have four layers. Cover the last layer only with the bechamel, the remaining Parmigiano cheese, and some green beans and potatoes.

  • pesto sauce
  • green beans
  • potatoes
  • GF lasagna sheets

Step 6
