There is not a drop of Italian blood in this house, but we find such comfort in Italian foods. My husband's favorite is Lasagna and Garlic bread. It is what we consider "homemade" though I use a jar sauce...my family is hooked on Prego! I simply layer cooked noodles with a sauce mixture...ground chuck browned with onion and garlic, salt and pepper, Prego (of course) and some cottage cheese (optional)....
....top that layer with grated mozzarella and start all over again.
Once the 6 layers are there (2 each of noodles, sauce and cheese) you just bake it, uncovered, in the oven at 350 til it is bubbly and the cheese is melted...about 40 minutes. I made an extra large pan...it was so heavy that Sweetheart had to take it out of the oven. It contained 8 cups of cheese! It was wonderful last night with the toasted garlic bread. There is more than 1/2 left over for tonight's dinner, which is good because this lasagna is better the next day! I will serve it with fresh baked homemade white bread and butter...if you are going for comfort, just do it already!
I spent much of today cleaning my sewing room. It was totally trashed. I am getting ready to baste this little table topper I am making for a friend. I think I will pin baste it. It is only 20"x20". These are some of my favorite fabrics!
Tomorrow evening, I will draw the winner of my 2 year blogoversary giveaway. If you have not entered, please go back to this post and leave a comment.
