Lasagna, pesto and shrimps: the Christmas recipe #DaAssaggia – Italian Cuisine

Lasagna means family, love, party. This is why Emiliane Barilla has proposed them with an original recipe to bring to the table during the Christmas holidays

Italian traditions are a staple in our daily life, but even more so when the holidays arrive. Egg pasta is one of those traditions, capable of making us feel at home from the very first taste. And with a touch of creativity it is possible to transform it and combine the heritage handed down from generation to generation with today's innovation and needs, just as the Emiliane Barilla.

The famous range of egg pasta has represented the history of our country for over 100 years, with its 33 pasta shapes produced with durum wheat semolina and fresh category A eggs, of Italian origin only and raised on the ground. From tagliatelle to fettuccine, up to lasagna and cappelletti, with a delicate, rough and porous pastry, in order to perfectly accommodate any sauce.

On the occasion of Christmas, Emiliane Barilla wants to give new life to traditions by recommending tasty and easy-to-make recipes, such as lasagna with pesto and shrimp.

Lebkuchen – 's Lebkuchen recipe – Italian Cuisine

»Lebkuchen - Misya's Lebkuchen recipe

Put sugar and honey in a saucepan and heat them over low heat: they must melt, but without coming to a boil.

Mix the flours and baking soda in a bowl, add the egg first, then the slightly softened butter, then the mandarin and spices and finally the honey and sugar mix.
Cover the dough with cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours (or, better yet, overnight).

Take the dough, roll it out on a lightly floured surface and cut out your cookies with the molds you prefer (I used a set of Christmas molds).

Arrange the biscuits on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper, brush with a little milk and bake for 10-12 minutes at 180 ° C, then leave to cool completely.
Prepare the ice by mixing egg white and powdered sugar and decorate your cookies to taste, then let them dry.

The Lebkuchen are ready, you just have to serve them, or keep them in a tin box until ready to serve (they can also be kept for 2-3 weeks).
