CHEF JOHN'S LASAGNA



Chef John's Lasagna image

There are only two things you need for great lasagna: a thick, rich, super-meaty meat sauce and lots of it, and a ricotta filling where only the finest cheeses are welcomed. For the sauce, I love a combination of half Italian sausage and half lean ground beef. I also like lots of sauce.

Categories     World Cuisine Recipes     European     Italian

Time 3h25m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 20

1 pound bulk Italian sausage
1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
1 (8 ounce) package fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
6 cups prepared marinara sauce
2 tablespoons water, plus more as needed
2 eggs
2 pounds whole-milk ricotta cheese
1 (8 ounce) container fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
⅔ cup freshly shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
1 (16 ounce) package lasagna noodles
1 (8 ounce) container fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
½ cup freshly shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Steps:

  • Place sausage and ground beef into a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until meat is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Break the meat apart as it cooks. Stir in mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, Italian herb seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Turn heat to medium-high and cook until mushrooms have given off their juices and bottom of pan is almost dry.
  • Pour prepared marinara sauce into meat mixture. Pour water into marinara sauce jar and shake to get all the sauce out of the jar; add to mixture. Reduce heat to low and simmer until meat is extremely tender, about 2 hours. Add a little more water if sauce becomes too thick. Skim excess fat from surface of the sauce and season with more salt and black pepper, if needed. Turn off heat.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Beat eggs in a large bowl and stir in ricotta cheese, 8 ounces diced mozzarella cheese, and 2/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Season cheese mixture with 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and cayenne pepper; mix in parsley.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse noodles and set aside in a bowl of cold water.
  • Spread 1/4 the sauce into the bottom of a 10x15-inch baking pan. Top with 1/3 the noodles and spread 1/2 the ricotta cheese mixture over noodles. Spread 1/4 the meat sauce over the cheese, top with 1/3 the noodles, and spread remaining 1/2 the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Spread 1/4 the meat sauce over the cheese filling. Tap the casserole dish lightly on a sturdy work surface to settle the layers. Arrange last 1/3 the noodles over sauce and spread remaining 1/4 the sauce over the noodles. Dot top of the casserole with 4 ounces diced fresh mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
  • Cover casserole with aluminum foil, being sure not to touch the top of the casserole with the foil. Place casserole onto a baking sheet to catch spills.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook until lasagna is golden brown and bubbling, 30 to 35 more minutes. Let set for 20 minutes before cutting into squares.

KATEL'S TWEAKED WORLD'S BEST LASAGNA



KateL's Tweaked World's Best Lasagna image

The BEST lasagna I have ever made! Adapted from John Chandler's "World's Best Lasagna" on allrecipes.com. Many reviews said he had too much salt and sugar in his recipe (some reviewers said they were "obvious typos"). I also made some changes recommended by the Allrecipes Test Kitchen, and some by other reviewers of John's recipe. The anchovy paste and red pepper flakes were my idea. I used chuck roast which I trimmed and ground myself. This time I used Taylor Dry Sherry. I used Galbani Sorrento Original Ricotta Cheese (whole milk) and had no regrets, but if available, I would buy Calabro All Natural Whole Milk Ricotta. The saying is: "people who don't like ricotta cheese have never had good ricotta cheese." The Sorrento was rich and creamy, reminding me of mascarpone, not thin and watery, reminding me of yogurt or sour cream. This lasagna was not bland and the sauce did not seem "sweet" (but it was delightful). The 19-mo.-old had seconds. Edited 5/4/15 cut ricotta to 16 oz.

Time 11h33m

Yield 1 9x13-inch pan, 12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 27

1 lb sweet Italian sausage (casings removed)
3/4 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup onion, minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2-1 teaspoon anchovy paste (optional) or 1/2-1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
28 ounces canned crushed tomatoes
12 ounces canned tomato paste
12 -15 ounces canned tomato sauce
1/2 cup dry white wine or 1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon brown sugar or 1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh basil, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley, roughly chopped
cooking spray
12 lasagna noodles
16 ounces ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 eggs
2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lb sliced deli-style mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (1/4 cup per layer)
cooking spray, to prevent foil from sticking to lasagna

Steps:

  • SAUCE:.
  • In a large, heavy pot, cook sausage, ground beef until browned. Drain sausage and ground beef and reserve, leaving 2 tablespoons of fat in the pan. Cook onion over medium heat until well-browned (maybe 5 minutes?), but do not burn. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds (if garlic burns, it turns bitter).
  • Add drained sausage and ground beef back to pan. Stir in anchovy paste, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce and wine/sherry/water. Now stir in sugar, basil, fennel seeds, Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons roughly chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. (If you use an enameled cast iron Dutch oven, give yourself a pat on the back.). (The simmering cooks the sauce down to a very thick consistency.).
  • Let sauce cool, then refrigerate in a covered non-reactive dish overnight to let the flavors meld.
  • LASAGNA:.
  • Soak raw, hard noodles in a large roasting pan with VERY hot tap water for 20-30 minute (Noodles won't be cooked but soft, and can complete its cooking in the oven.).
  • (Alternatively, you may instead bring a large pot of water to a boil, seasoned with kosher salt. Boil lasagna noodles for 8-10 minutes. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water.).
  • In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese with eggs, 2 tablespoons parsley, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Spread 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce in the bottom of the 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange 6 noodles lengthwise over meat sauce. Spread with half of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese slices. Spoon 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce on top, then sprinkle with 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
  • For second layer: spread 1 1/2 cups meat sauce, 6 noodles, remaining ricotta mixture, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 1/2 cups sauce, remaining half of mozzarella slices, and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
  • Tear off aluminum foil to cover pan. Spray foil with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, covered with foil, at 375 degrees F.
  • Remove foil, and bake an additional 25 minutes.
  • Cool 15-20 minutes before serving.

WORLD'S BEST LASAGNA



World's Best Lasagna image

This was actually my mom's recipe, but to this day, I haven't had lasagna that has been able to match this one. We very rarely had leftovers when she made this. But, if you do get leftovers, it's even better the next day after reheating. This particular recipe calls for cottage cheese, but you can certainly use the same amount of ricotta cheese if you like. But, I will tell you, once you taste it, you won't even tell it's cottage cheese that you're eating. My mom just always used it because it's healthier, at least that what she says, but I like it better anyway because it doesn't have that "dry" texture ricotta has. But it's up to you. Also, if you have a little extra mozzarella cheese, you can add some of that to the top after you remove the foil and before putting it back in the oven, if you wish. I hope you enjoy it!!
