Lasagna with broccoli and sausage is a real must of the winter season, a very valid white alternative to the classic Bolognese lasagna with meat ragu sauce. It is a rather simple preparation in which the sheets of fresh pasta are alternated with a filling with a unique, creamy and nice taste. The final gratin in the oven will give the dish an irresistible golden crust on the surface. A perfect dish for Sunday lunch with the family or to prepare for a dinner with guests, but also a smart idea to make your children eat the so much hated vegetables too. So let’s find out how to prepare the lasagna with broccoli and sausage by following our recipe step by step.

How to prepare lasagna with broccoli and sausage

Wash the broccoli, get the florets and boil them in boiling salted water for about ten minutes (1); once cooked, drain and collect them in a bowl with cold water.

Brown the garlic in a pan with a drizzle of oil, then add the broccoli (2) and let them flavor for about ten minutes.

When they are softened and flavored, mash the broccoli with the help of a fork (3). Then turn off the flame and set broccoli aside.

Peel the onion, chop it and sauté it in a pan with a drizzle of oil; add the onion, peeled and cut into chunks (4), and let it cook until it becomes crisp. At the end of cooking, season with ground pepper.

Prepare the béchamel; melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the sifted flour (5) and cook over medium heat until you will get a roux.

Add the milk a bit heated (6) and keep cooking, stirring constantly, until thickened. Turn off the flame and add a pinch of salt.

Spread a thin layer of béchamel in a medium-sized ovenproof dish, about 28 cm long (7).

Arrange 3 sheets of lasagna and cover with broccoli, sausage and a handful of grated parmesan cheese (8). Cover with the pasta and continue in this way making 3 layers in total.

Finish with a last layer of béchamel and some other grated parmesan cheese (9), then bake at 180 degrees C for about 25-30 minutes.

After the cooking time will be elapsed, take the lasagna with broccoli and sausage out of the oven, plate it up and serve it still hot and stringy (10).
