  • I have cheesy pasta things to share today in the form of this Crispy Prosciutto White Lasagna. It’s filled with a creamy Béchamel sauce and layered with spinach, ricotta, provolone, and then topped with prosciutto just before baking, which allows it to get nice and crispy in the oven. So. Good. You need to make this. Preferably very soon or maybe for your next holiday dinner? Either works. Full recipe below. .
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt + pepper
1/4 cup flour
2 cups whole milk
2 cups chicken or veggie broth
1 cup each shredded mozzarella + parmesan
2 cups whole milk ricotta
2 cups shredded provolone
2 packages frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 box no-boil lasagna noodles
3 ounces prosciutto, torn
.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper and cook 30 seconds. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 1 minute. Add the milk and broth. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. .
Combine the ricotta, provolone and spinach. Spread 1/4 of the cheese sauce in the bottom of a greased baking dish. Top with 3-4 lasagna sheets. Spread with 1/2 the ricotta cheese mixture and then another 1/4 of the cheese sauce. Repeat the layers. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Arrange the prosciutto on top. Bake at 350, uncovered for 45 minutes. Let stand 20 minutes before serving (right, right). Enjoy!! #feedfeed #foodandwine #f52grams #buzzfeast #video #christmas #imsomartha #CLkitchen #howiholiday
