I grew up in a family where food and cooking were the pivot around which the entire day revolved. Setting the table with great care, even for the simplest occasion, was a way to make every meal a momentous occasion. Always put a little heart into it when you do.
In a mixer, combine the flour, semolina, oil, egg and egg yolks; let the dough knead. If it’s too hard, add a bit of water until it’s nice and smooth.
Form a ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 1 hour. After that, it’s ready to go.
For the Tomato Sauce
Blend the peeled tomatoes and pass them through a coarse sieve. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil with the garlic, add the tomato puree and cook until it reduces. Season with salt and pepper and fresh basil.
For the Meatballs
Mince the meat. Season with the rest of the ingredients except for the flour and mix. Form into small meatballs, dredge in flour and fry.
For the Lasagna
Mix the tomato sauce with the ricotta cheese and chopped basil. Boil the peas.
Roll out the dough into sheets and cut them to the size of the baking pan. Cook in water and salt with a drop of oil.
Drain and let them dry on a cotton dish towel or a sheet of parchment paper.
In a deep baking pan lined with parchment paper, prepare the lasagna by topping each layer with the tomato and ricotta sauce, peas, meatballs, some of the Parmigiano and chopped hard-boiled eggs.
Top the last layer with the tomato and ricotta sauce and add a sprinkling of the remaining Parmigiano.
Place in oven at 160°C for about 50 minutes.
Cut the spring onions into julienne strips.
On a flat plate place a slice of lasagna garnished with the julienned spring onions. On the side, arrange some burrata cheese, tomato sauce and basil leaves.
