Step 1

Here are four easy steps for the perfect lactose-free lasagne bolognese:

Step 2

In a skillet over medium heat, sauté the celery, onion, and carrot with a drizzle of olive oil and the bay leaf until golden brown. Add the ground beef, pork, and pancetta, and cook until the meat starts to brown. 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 of water, or enough water to cover the meat mixture, and cook slowly over low heat for at least 30 minutes. Discard the bay leaf.

Step 3

While the meat sauce is cooking, prepare the béchamel sauce. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan, add the flour and whisk together for 3-4 minutes over low heat until smooth. Heat the lactose-free 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.
