Green Vegetable Pasta Bake
6,2 / 10
ready in 1 hr
- 12 Lasagne noodle (pre-cooked)
- 2 bunches green Asparagus
- 1 shallot (finely chopped)
- 4 Tbsps butter
- 4 Tbsps all-purpose flour
- ⅜ cup white wine
- ⅞ cup chicken stock
- ⅞ cup cream
- 2 Tbsps Crème fraiche
- 2 Tbsps Parmesan (freshly grated)
- 3 Mozzarella
- freshly ground peppers
- Nutmeg (freshly grated)
Wash the asparagus and peel the lower third. Blanch the asparagus by placing it in boiling, salted water for ca. 5 minutes and then into cold water. Drain the asparagus.
Peel and finely chop the shallots. Fry in a little butter until soft. Add the flour and stir well before slowly pouring in the white wine. Simmer for a couple of minutes and reduce a little.
Stir in the chicken stock and the cream. Allow to thicken before adding the creme fraiche. Season with salt, freshly milled pepper and nutmeg.
Pour some of the sauce into an ovenproof lasagne dish (ca. 20 x 20 cm). Place a layer of lasagne sheets on top, followed by some asparagus and a little of the sauce. Cover with freshly grated parmesan and repeat the process. Cover with the remaining lasagne sheets.
Cut the mozzarella into slices and place on top of the lasagne sheets. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C | 400F | gas 6 for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
