I thought I’d share my “honorable mention” for the week. There is just something comforting about lasagna. It represents all the food groups, makes for great leftovers, and can be made with just about anything you have on-hand. Most box lasagna recipes call for chopped frozen spinach, but the real deal is much better in my opinion.
I thawed some leftover pasta sauce made from the last pickup, it was in the chest freezer for safe keeping. About a cup of it went into the bottom of my baking pan and on top went 4 cooked lasagna noodles. 2 eggs, some mozzarella and ricotta mixed in with my freshly chopped spinach.
About half of this went on top of my 4 noodles, followed by 4 more noodles. Peek a boo!
The rest of my sauce went on top along with the other half of pasta sauce. Another 4 noodles followed, some fresh sliced tomato and grated Parmesan cheese. Had I not used the rest of my veggies for the week, they would have wound up in a layer as well…
Another 350 degrees for about 45 minutes covered in foil, then 10 minutes without the foil, and messy deliciousness awaits!!!
(Please ignore the flashlights and sunscreen in the background, residual camping equipment from this weekend). See you tomorrow for our next mid-season pickup!
