Mozzarella and cherry tomatoes lasagna

Translation by Alessandra Dubini – Marlborough College

Welcome to Kitcheninthecity! Urban kitchen, means easy good cooking. Urban life here in Milan is quite tough: work+ 2 hungry teenagers+one great husband.  Cooking is passion, eating with family and fiends is sharing love. I’ll just ask  you to be comprehensive to my “english” mistakes…

Let’s start with a Lasagna! No meat ragù, just flavoury Bufala mozzarella (but f you have normal mozzarella it works!) and fresh cherry tomatoes. Basil bechamel. Tasty, quick, perfect for dinners, picnic, Sunday brunches. Would you ask more? You don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen…just follow few step and you’ll get a delicious green bechamel + great lasagna. Prepare it the day before, most of the work is the bechamel. Here they say it tastes like pizza, what do you think?

If you’re a fan of this recipe then you should also try out Mozzarella & Tomato Calzone.

  1. I bet the smell fills your whole house! That´s a plus about having a small kitchen, I suppose.

    • Hi Emmy and thank you for your comment! It’s my first on the Recipe Room!
      Yes it smells good feeling….small or big the size of a kitchen depends on the chef! My kitchen at home is small, I usually work in between the sink and the fire, 1 meter of black stone is enough!
      Come back when you have tried my lasagna!
