Best Easy Lasagna And Cannelloni recipes.

Updated on September 16, 2016

The best lasagna,a healthy meal.

How to make the best lasagna in the world.

First we will start with the dough, you are not going to use the regular pasta dough you will use what is specifically used for lasagna and cannelloni and here is the recipe for it: in a large bowl mix 6 eggs,1/2 qt milk,1/2 qt water,one stick melted butter ,one teaspoon of salt and two full cups of flour, mix well,you should end up with a mix similar to pancakes but more a frying pan make with this mix thin pancakes , you will have to butter the pan often so the pancakes don't stick.if at any point the mix is too thick just add water.

The filling for the lasagna

For the Lasagna filling saute, three large onions ,half a head of garlic ,when it's almost done (it looks transparent)add Italian seasoning, mix and remove from fire,divide it into three equal parts and use one part to saute and cook about two lbs of ground beef 90% lean, once its cooked add some green and black olives, this will be your first layer, take the second part of the onions and saute about four packs of frozen chopped spinach, add to this once it's cooked chopped walnuts or pecan,this will be your second layer,your third layer will be about three cans of ready to eat mussels , I find the Spanish ones pretty good, your third layer will be regular cooked ham like the used for sandwiches sliced thin about three slices one on top of the other and a slice of provolone medium sliced on top of the ham.

If you don't like mussels or seafood at all.

If you don't like mussels or seafood at all or you are allergic you can substitute the layer of mussels for a layer of sautteed musshrooms or champignons of your choice.

The sauces

We will make two sauces to top off the lasagna one white and one red, Bechamel sauce and pasta sauce. for the pasta sauce we will use the last of the three parts of the onions ,cut up very small one red chorizo and add a large(29oz) can of tomato sauce one teaspoonful of sugar, one teaspoon of salt , and one cup of water. simmer low for about one hour and it should be ready.For the Bechamel or white sauce, you will need two cups of milk,one teaspoon of the salt half teaspoon of ground black pepper one stick of butter and three tablespoons of flour, mix in a small pot and be continuously stirring until it thickens when it thickens it's ready.

Assembly and put in the oven.

So now we will put all this together and put in the oven.In a large baking pan ,(about 12 x 16 x 3) on the bottom spread the ground beef, cover with a layer of the pancakes ,next put the layer of the spinach, then a layer of pancakes, next put a layer of the mussels then a layer of pancakes, after that a layer of the ham and a layer of the cheese,next a layer of the pancakes, now cover with a layer of the pasta sauce , cover the pasta sauce with a layer of the white or bechamel sauce, and on top of all parmesan grated cheese.Put in the oven, at about 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the to[p starts to get a little color. remove ,let sit for a few minutes and enjoy the best lasagna you have ever eaten and take a bow when you get a standing O!

Here you have as a bonus recipe for the best cannelloni.

For an equally delicious dinner but much easier and faster from this same recipe you can make the best cannelloni on the planet, all you have to do is use the same dough for the filling you use the beef part of the lasagna to make beef cannelloni and the spinach part for the filling to make spinach cannelloni. So you place the filling on the dough and roll it fill a baking dish with them and cover with first the red sauce and on top, the white sauce (bechamel) sprinkle with abundant parmesan cheese and put in the oven.

      I absolutely love lasagna, there's just something about that ground beef and cheese that gets me every time. I never thought about adding muscles or seafood though, sounds interesting and well worth a try.

      this one unlike the cappelletti alla Caruso takes a little bit of work, so you really have to be in the mood for some cooking to tackle it,but the result is worth it,everybody will remember it,I can say that because all the credit goes to my late uncle who taught it to me .and the sort of pancakes instead of pasta is how it's made in Uruguay and Argentina by the Italian immigrants that landed in those shores,the same is used to make the Cannelloni,so much so that they didn't even sell what here in the US is so common, the pasta to make lasagna.Great to be in touch! Keep on Hubbing!

      this looks absolutely scrumptious--and good for you, too--what with the spinach and tomatoes. The layering turned out extremely well.

      I am super intrigued by the use of pancakes instead of pasta. How unique. I think I must ultimately try it both ways: seafood once, and mushrooms, once. I imagine this substitution alters the outcome greatly!
