Recipe | Home cooked Italian food | Ragu sauce inspired by Tony Soprano

20 Feb

when Tony wasn’t dealing with waste management, he was shoveling spoonfuls of his ma’s baked ziti into his gut

28 Apr

I always mean to document my lasagne on the rare occasions that I make it and last time I cooked it, I made sure I took ample photos. I got the recipe from Jamie’s Dinners – a Jamie Oliver cookery book that I use on a regular basis. It’s an essential book for any kitchen.

Check out my photos below.

The core ingredient that makes it is butternut squash.
