Summer Caprese Lasagne Recipe

Serves 4

Basil Oil:

  • 2 cups basil leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Lasagne

  • 4 large lasagne sheets
  • 6 heirloom tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 balls buffalo mozzarella, torn
  • basil leaves, to serve
Method
  1. To make basil oil, place basil leaves, garlic, and olive oil in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Strain oil through a muslin-lined sieve; discard solids. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and set aside until ready to use.
  2. To make lasagne, cook lasagne sheets in a large pot of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes, or until al dente. Place 1 sheet of lasagne on each plate, with one end hanging over the side of the plate.
  3. Top with some tomato slices and mozzarella, and drizzle with a little basil oil. Fold lasagne sheet over the top of the filling, and repeat with another layer of tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil oil. Sprinkle with fresh basil leaves and serve.
