Homemade Spinach Lasagne/magazine lost recipe

dandy985 Dec 5, 2009 01:58 PM

I found a recipe several years ago, before I moved and haven't been able to find it since.
It was a recipe for homemade spinach lasagne noodles, layered with a bolognese sauce
that was not too tomato-y, bechamel sauce, and ricotta. It was in a magazine and the
headline on cover read something like: "The Best Lasagne Ever", or "Best Lasagne in the
World". I thought it was a Gourmet issue, but haven't found it on Epicurious. It could have been from Saveur, def. not Bon Appetit though. Is anyone familiar with this recipe?? I think
it appeared in a 2004-2006 issue. Help!!!! The recipe was absolutely divine.

    This recipe for Lasagne Verdi al Forno appeared in Saveur Magazine in 2001. On the cover of the magazine (Issue 53), it says, "How to Make Real Lasagne" (but the feature article is about New Mexican cuisine). Is this the recipe your looking for?
    You can read the accompanying article here:

    Two other trusted sources of Emila-Romagna cuisine are Marcella Hazan (who is discussed in the above article) and Lynn Rosetto Kasper and they both have recipes for this classic dish.
    You can find Marcella's recipe here (scroll down): http://www.geoffdougherty.com/marcell... and Lynn Rosetto Kasper's here: http://melbournelarder.blogspot.com/2...

    Hope this helps. :-)

      Veggiegirl, you don't know how thankful I am!! I have looked everywhere for this recipe!
      I've called Gourmet mag.-I've done hours of online searches, and I can't believe you came
      up with this in no time at all. Have you made this recipe?? To me, I think it is the finest
      tasting lasagne recipe I have ever had. What do you think?

        The April 2006 Gourmet had a picture of a gorgeous lasagne and the headline was 'The World's Best Lasagne' from Mario Batali so that may be why you were thinking it was Gourmet (sadly, one of the few issues I still have after purging my collection last year).
