Preparation

Prepare the lasagna dough by mixing 200g of flour with two eggs, letting the dough rest, and finally pulling it through the appropriate pasta maker. Meanwhile, prepare the artichokes by removing their outer leaves and the inner ‘choke’, and cut them into slices. Sauté the parsley in the pan. Add the artichokes and continue till done. Adjust the salt. Slice some cheese of your choice and make the béchamel sauce. At this point, butter a baking dish and prepare the lasagna, alternating layers of pasta, artichokes, cheese and white sauce. Continue until all the ingredients have been used up. Finish with béchamel, parmesan and some flakes of butter. Bake at 180°C for 40 minutes. Serve.

Tips
Among the various cheeses that you could use to make this delicious spring dish, we suggest taleggio or fontina.
Trivia
If possible, choose Roman artichokes because they have few characterized by fewer spines and less of the central ‘choke’.
