plastic wrap and let stand for about 30 minutes. Spread it in thin sheets and cut it into rectangles of a size similar to that of the pan you will use. Cook the sheets by immersing them for half a minute in salted boiling water. Drain them and put them on a cloth spread on the work surface.
For the bechamel: mix 2 1/2 tablespoons of oil with ½ cup of cornstarch and 1/3 cup of milk; 2 glasses of milk in a pot with a grated nutmeg, bringing it to a boil, then pour the mixture with the starch,
mixing with a whisk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly with the whisk and cook for about 2
minutes until the béchamel sauce has thickened.
For the lasagna: spread a spoonful of bechamel on the bottom of a baking sheet, then cover with a layer of pasta. Cut and use strips of dough to cover any holes. Start preparing the layers by covering each sheet with 2 tablespoons of béchamel sauce, the ragù and the grated Parmesan. Proceed for 5 layers and finish with béchamel sauce, ragù and plenty of Parmigiano Reggiano. Cook the lasagna at 200 degrees for about 30-35 minutes.
