Oven baked lasagne with radicchio and walnuts

Timr: 35 min Lifestyle: Traditional Type of cheese: Monte Veronese, Grana Padano Course: Single dish

1 Pack of "ready to bake" egg lasagne 
500 g radicchio
200 g of fresh Monte Veronese PDO
50 g butter 
500 g bechamel sauce already prepared
2 tablespoons of grated Grana Padano PDO
1 shallot
50 g of shelled walnuts

For home made bechamel sauce: 1/2 litre of milk, 50 g of butter, 50 g of flour, nutmeg and salt.


Preparation time: 15 min

Cooking time: 20 min

Wash the radicchio and fry with the chopped shallot and two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Cut the Monte Veronese PDO cheese and mix with radicchio. Heat the prepared bechamel sauce in a small saucepan, add a pinch of nutmeg and a little milk to make it fluid; for those who prefer it home made: gradually add the butter and flour mixture to the boiling milk, put it on the flame, boil until it thickens, add salt and nutmeg. Toast the walnuts in small pieces in a heated skillet. Butter a baking pan and make a first layer of bechamel sauce on the bottom, add a part of the radicchio and cheese mixture and cover with another layer of bechamel sauce. Alternate the ingredients. Spread flakes of butter and the grated Grana Padano PDO cheese on the surface. Bake at 180° for about 20/30 minutes. Serve the oven-baked lasagne warm.
