Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Honeycomb Lasagne

Honeycomb lasagne come cannelloni. We weren’t sure what to call this. It’s essentially a lasagne using Ragu filled Rigati pasta instead of lasagne sheets. Rigati is a large tube shaped pasta. We’ve filled our dish with them, spooned the ragu into the tubes and topped with a cheese sauce. It’s absolutely delicious and a real family pleaser. Admittedly it is fiddly but doesn’t have to look perfect. ⠀
