Liguria is a mountainous region on Italy’s north-west coastline where romantic seaside villages sit tucked beneath rugged cliffs on the edge of the Mediterranean. The region is famous for its scenery but like everywhere in Italy, food is central to the culture and as the birthplace of pesto, Ligurian cuisine has made its own mark on the world.
Inspired by traditional Ligurian el pesto lasagna, each bite of this deconstructed dish is flavoursome and satisfying, without being overly heavy. Plus, preparing the lasagna is quick and easy; once you’ve made the Pesto Genovese and put all your magic into the basil and spinach puree, it’s as simple as tossing everything together. No tedious layering needed.
