DB March Challenge: Lasagne of Emilia-Romagna

This month's Daring Baker's Challenge wasn't bread or some tasty baked good, but Lasagne made with homemade spinach pasta. We like lasagne so we were pretty happy with this one. The requirement was that we make the handmade spinach egg pasta, use bechamel sauce, and a ragu sauce.
The March 2009 challenge is hosted by Mary of Beans and Caviar, Melinda of Melbourne Larder and Enza of Io Da Grande. They have chosen Lasagne of Emilia-Romagna from The Splendid Table by Lynne Rossetto Kasper as the challenge.

Look at that beautiful green ball of pasta!

A great opportunity to use my ravioli cutter.
The pasta drying in my living room.

Making bechamel sauce was a new one for me. I didn't even know what it was. In the end, my kids say, "This tastes like regular lasagne!" Great...after all that hard work...
The Daring Bakers now have their own website, you can check out the recipe here, and also check out the wonderful creations from the rest of us!
