Besciamella is a faboulous white sauce. The original Besciamella have a discussed origin: some people says it comes from France (“Bechamel”) and other people says it’s a Tuscany sauce, imported in France afterwards. Anyway it’s a common sauce in Italy(we don’t live just eating tomato!).
I personally love This sauce because it’s really good with oven baked pasta as well as with chicken and it’s one of the main ingredients of our beloved lasagna.
The recipe is very easy, you will only need:
- 1 litre of warm milk
- 100 gr of butter
- 100 gr of plain flour
- A pinch of salt
