. . . . . . . . was today!
Hope you didn't miss it.
I try to cook mostly from scratch but today
I didn't spend any time preparing a baking dish full
of lasagna noodles, not even those quick version ones which
you don't have to boil ahead. The better tasting noodles that you
pre-boil must then be rescued, all heavy and slimy, from the
gigantic pot of water steaming up the already hot kitchen,
definitely not a job for July in the south.
Yesterday at Costco I found the perfect - for us - lasagna.
No meat, no unctuous too sweet or too salty red sauce, and no thick
We really enjoyed this lighter spinach and broccoli version
with just enough béchamel sauce and cheese between a minimum
of thin pasta noodles. It wasn't frozen and took only 30 mins. to bake
to a golden bubbling top.
Enough for supper on National Lasagna Day with plenty leftover for
another two meals.
I think I would even enjoy this cold with a little Cesar salad on the side. . . . .
it would make a cool lunch on a stifling Summer day.
