Preparation

The day before, prepare a ‘white’ Bolognese sauce made with lean ground beef, following the procedure for the traditional Bolognese sauce except omitting the tomatoes. Also make some creamed asparagus as follows: boil the asparagus in boiling salted water and then drain. In a frying pan sauté some white onion and add the asparagus, cut into small pieces. Let everything cook for a while, then add a bit of cottage cheese, salt and pepper. The next day take the cream of asparagus and supplement it with 50 ml of béchamel sauce. Begin to assemble the dish, alternating layers of the ‘white’ Bolognese sauce, béchamel and parmesan cheese, with the creamed asparagus. Finish with a layer of lasagne, a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese, some butter and bake at 180 °C for 30 minutes

Tips
Prepare in advance both the ‘white Bolognese’ and the creamed asparagus with ricotta. The next day, you’ll only have to assemble the dish and bake it.
Trivia
Asparagus is particularly rich in potassium, as well as vitamin A and the B vitamins.
