Amy Riolo: Hi, I'm Amy Riolo. Today, I’m working in the kitchen at Sur La Table in Arlington, Virginia. And I'm making Ligurian Lasagna with a vegetables and pesto. And in this segment I’m going to show you how to boil the lasagna what I have here are two twelve ounce boxes the lasagna sheets. So this lasagna sheet is great because it’s a nice size and it has the curved edges and it has little lines going all the ways through it, which means it is really going to help and absorb the sauce and grab on to a lot of our nice garden puree.
Now to cook our lasagna we’re going to have nice boiling water. We wanted to at rapid boil, we want to have the big pot full and then we’re going to add salt to the water once is boiling. Then we are going to add four lasagna sheets at a time. You don’t wan to add any more than that because there will stick, so you just want to take your time and really pace yourself and just go a little bit of a time, so here our first four noodles and just kind of store those around the little bit so they don’t stick together so these are going to cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until their tender but we don’t want them to be actually ready to eat. We still want them to be a little bit firm and not really breakable because we’re going to layer them in the oven and bake them a little bit longer that’s going to make them softer.
So you want these actually tender but not as tender as they would be if you are going to eat them right now so keep that in line. About 3 to 5 minutes should be perfect and we just let’s go and in the next segment I’m going to show you how to make a garden puree.
