Traditionally, Italian families gather around the dining table to eat together. Having kids means the ‘house chef’ needs to satisfy the tastes of each family member by preparing meals that are both delicious and enjoyable, and don’t take long to cook and prepare. We’ve created the solution, and organised the essentials you need in this Italian Family Box, serving a family of 4 for 3 different meals. With three classic dishes, you’ll be able to satisfy both your little ones and grown-ups! The hearty classic: Lasagna. We’ll supply you with our Fresh Egg Lasagne Sheets, Nutmeg Butter, Bolognese Sauce and Parmigiano Reggiano. All you need is some additional butter, flour and milk to make your Bechamel Sauce, but don’t worry, we’ll give you some advice on how to make the perfect one. Mac & Cheese: A fond favourite again with all ages (especially little chefs). Using our fresh Mini Macaroni, this recipe is incredibly creamy due to the presence of various kinds of cheese – we supply you with Pecorino Romano and Parmigiano Reggiano to bring some Italian aromas to your table, but feel free to add extra cheddar to taste. Finish this dish off with breadcrumbs for a crispy finish. Our last family favourite is one of the most popular Italian dishes: Fresh Spaghetti alla Bolognese. This sauce is slow-cooked for 3 hours to ensure a deeper depth of flavour which will have you and your family slurping the Spaghetti and laughing together. We understand it’s a lot of ingredients, so we recommend storing the sauces and pasta in the cupboard (for the sauces – but not too long!) and freezer (pasta is best here!) and taking them out anytime so you can delight your family with some mouth-watering comfort food, anytime. Follow the recipe instructions which are available here. It may take time to achieve perfection and to purchase any additional ingredients you may need. Don’t forget – food tastes better when shared with your loved ones! #SharingIsCaring

Prepare the bechamel sauce: start to melt both kinds of butter in a medium saucepan. Mix in the flour and cook on low heat until it combines – approximately 1 minute. Pour the milk, a little at a time, and keep stirring to avoid lumps. Stir continuously, until the bechamel becomes thick. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 180°-200°C.
Once your bechamel sauce is ready, begin to assemble the Lasagna. Take a baking tray and with a spoon put a layer of bechamel (roughly 100ml per layer), then a jar of Bolognese sauce, and finally a Lasagne sheet – then repeat the sequence of layers. Apply the sauces and even them out with the back of a spoon for even distribution. You can use 30g of Parmigiano Reggiano split among the layers by sprinkling the cheese between the bechamel sauce and Bolognese.
Pour the remaining bechamel and Bolognese Sauce over the last layer of the Lasagne sheet and top with Parmigiano Reggiano – make sure you cover the Lasagne Sheets well to avoid burnt edges.
Cook in the oven for 10 minutes on the middle shelf at 180c then adjust to grill function for 5 extra minutes to ensure the top layer of Parmigiano is a little crisp.
Once ready, take out of the oven and let stand for about 10 minutes before slicing, then serve.
