Ham and cheese potato lasagna

Ham and cheese potato lasagna is a kind of lasagna prepared without lasagna noodles: of cours it is not a real lasagna, but this easy and delicious dish is made of layers and layers of very thin potatoes, ham and cheese… so tasty! I often prepare ham and cheese potato lasagna because moreover it is a quick and easy recipe: just put the raw ingredients in the pan and then in the oven, without precooking anything.
To prepare ham and cheese potato lasagna without pre-cooking the potatoes it’s important, however, to cut the potatoes very thin, about 1/8 inch. To do this you can use a very sharp knife or, even better, a vegetable slicer, which also allows you to easily obtain potato slices all of the same thickness. Adding a little Parmesan cheese makes the ham and cheese potato lasagna even tastier and guarantees a perfect crust on the surface.

Tips and variation

As mentioned, it’s important that the potatoes are cut very thin and all of the same thickness. With the vegetable slicer it’s easy, but if you work with a knife and the potatoes are a little thicker, just extend the cooking time for 10-15 minutes, checking with a fork when the potatoes are soft.
