Lasagna with artichokes: preparation tips

Cooking artichoke lasagna is quite simple and doesn’t take long, but there are a few things that need to be done right in order to obtain a perfect result:

  • Clean the artichokes thoroughly: remove the tougher outer leaves, cut them in half and remove any internal fluff, then cut them into thin wedges (remember to use gloves: you might get your hands stained)

  • Place the wedges in a bowl containing water and lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown.

  • Use a good quality extra virgin olive oil to brown your artichokes in a pan with garlic and parsley.

  • When assembling the lasagna, be sure to top the dish with a layer of béchamel and parmesan that will yield a crisp crust.

  • If needed, use the grill mode at the end of cooking for a golden effect.

  • Let the lasagna sit for at least 10-15 minutes before cutting; this will allow the flavors to meld and make the cutting easier.

Lasagna with artichokes and extra virgin olive oil: a perfect combination

The use of extra virgin olive oil in the preparation of artichoke lasagna is essential for a number of reasons:

  • Taste: the kind of extra virgin olive oil you select will give this dish a very distinctive flavor.

  • Health: EVO oil is a source of monounsaturated fats, also called ‘good fats’, which are beneficial for your cardiovascular system.

  • Digestion: extra virgin olive oil is very light, and will not affect your liver like butter or seed oil.

  • Non-stick action: if you lightly brush the pan with oil yout lasagna will not stick to the bottom, and cleaning your pan will be easier.


For the preparation of our artichoke lasagna we used Farchioni Classico Extra Virgin Olive Oil, whose extremely delicate taste is suitable for all uses, to cook or as a condiment.
