Baked lasagna with two pestos

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Basil leaves; packed tightly
3 Cloves garlic
¼ cup Pine nuts
¼ cup Parmigiano Reggiano; freshly grated
3 tablespoons Pecorino; freshly grated
1 cup Ligurian olive oil
Salt and pepper; to taste
2 cups Black Ligurian olives; pitted, to yield 1 cup
¼ cup Fresh basil leaves; tightly packed
¼ cup Pine nuts
¾ cup Ligurian extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup Pecorino Sardo; freshly grated
3 cups Bechamel sauce
1 Recipe basic pasta dough



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Roll out pasta to thinnest setting, cut into 3 inch squares, blanch 1 minute in boiling water and shock in ice water.

Divide bechamel sauce into two mixing bowls. Add Pesto One into one mixing bowl and Pesto Two into the other. On the bottom of 4 (6-inch) gratin dishes, place 2 tablespoons basilbechamel mixture. On top of that, lay one piece of pasta (in each dish). On top of the pasta, place 2 tablespoons of Pesto Two. Place a piece of pasta on top of the short stack. Continue until all pasta and bechamel mixtures are used up (about 7 or 8 pieces high, topping with a dollop of basil bechamel). Place in oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until bubbly and slightly golden brown on top. Serve immediately.
