The Game-Changing Ingredient To Add To Your Lasagna Bolognese
Like many Italian recipes, lasagna has gone through its own evolution. While only a few plates of food can be as comforting as that fresh-out-of-the-oven steaming piece of lasagna, we have an ingredient that will elevate even the most basic recipes; only a few drops of this unexpected condiment will leave hungry guests asking for more.
Although you may typically use Worcestershire sauce when marinating meat or making Caesar salad dressing, we have another use for this versatile condiment. While you're making classic lasagna Bolognese, recipe developer Ting Dalton recommends adding a splash of Worcestershire sauce to the mix.
Worcestershire sauce delivers not only a flavorful umami element from the anchovies but also delivers a sweet-sour combination due to the combination of vinegar, tamarind, and molasses. Since this sauce is a concentrated condiment with a complex flavor, add only a few dashes at a time and taste as you go to balance the flavors in your simmering pot.
