Rustique Country Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 250 g lasagne sheets

  • 400 g green beans

  • some olive oil, for sautéing

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 300 g country sausage, sliced diagonally

  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, finely chopped

  • 50 ml balsamic vinegar

  • some pasta water

  • 200 g feta cheese

  • chili flakes

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • salt

  • pepper

  • Greek yogurt, for serving

Method

  • Break up the lasagne sheets into uneven pieces.

  • Fill a large pot with water, add salt and bring to a boil. Add the green beans and the lasagne pieces and boil for 7-8 minutes or until the pasta is done..

  • Reserve a cup of pasta water. Drain and set aside.

  • Let a large pan get very hot over low heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the onion until it softens and turns golden.

  • Add the sausage and sauté for 5 minutes over medium heat.

  • Add the rosemary, oregano, garlic and bukovo pepper flakes (if sausage isn’t spicy) and sauté for 1 minute longer.

  • Add the balsamic vinegar and about a spoonful of the reserved pasta water. The starch that has been released from the pasta in the water will help thicken our sauce.

  • Add salt, pepper, honey and grated feta cheese. Stir to combine and taste and adjust honey or cheese according to your taste.

  • Add the pasta and green beans and add salt and pepper if necessary.

  • Garnish with yogurt and serve.

Tip

There is a fine blending of opposing tastes that mesh very well together and complement each other; the balsamic vinegar, honey and yogurt. The country sausage and honey is definitely an unbeatable combination…
