Lasagna Revisited

The weather is chilling so the comfort foods are coming out in full force as well as testing out new recipes that may become family favourites. These are the foods that later become comfort foods. Comfort foods are a true must have during the winter months!


Lasagna is one of our family favourites so I've posted a lot about it. Just to wet your whistle pictured is one of three lasagne I made last Friday. We enjoyed this beauty Friday night with left-overs for Saturday. I always make lasagna using a home meat sauce that can easily be substituted using your own homemade meat sauce. Once the sauce is made it really becomes a method for creating lasagna. I always start with sauce, cheese mixture, noodles, cheese, spinach/cottage cheese/sauce/cheese then the rest of the layers are comprised of noodles/cheese/cause/cheese ending with a cheese layer.

Now a few things come to mind. First some don't like adding spinach but it adds flavour, nutrients and texture. Second is the issue of adding cottage cheese. Cottage cheese adds a wonderful flavour but if you do not like using cottage cheese due to the texture, try blending it or substituting with ricotta. Both will add a rich, creamy flavour to your lasagna.

OHHHH, my wife makes lasagne with cottage cheese. She loves it, makes it like her mother... I have silently hated it for decades
