When we talk about lasagne it’s probably the meaty version that’s uppermost in most people’s minds but these days there are many different kinds. Here are my favourite wine pairings:
Basically you can go for the same type of wines as you would for a spaghetti bolognese only the cheese sauce tends to make the sauce a bit richer so you might want to go for slightly more full-bodied versions of those wines. A Rioja crianza, a medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon or a Syrah/Malbec blend would be a good match too
Depends what’s in them. If they include roasted vegetables like tomatoes, peppers and courgettes a gutsy Languedoc or Roussillon red would be a good match. If they include spinach or chard, a dry Italian white like a Gavi might be a better choice while a pumpkin or butternut squash lasagne will suit a richer white like a Viognier or oak-aged Chardonnay
A particularly opulent style of mushroom lasagne made with porcini and cream. That’s absolutely going to love a creamy white burgundy or other Chardonnay or even a glass of champagne. Red burgundy or other Pinot Noirs would also be a good match.
Often have very similar ingredients to a fish pie so suit similar wines. Try a smooth creamy Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc or fuller Italian white like a Soave.
