a word about lasagna
I made a lasagna realization last week:
A great lasagna doesn’t have to be smothered in ricotta.
Forgive me Italian chefs everywhere, but for those of us who can’t stomach the dairy, this is a life changing realization. I was really missing one of my favorite comfort foods! I hadn’t bothered to try it before because I assumed that the end result would be dry crunchy noodles layered in a casserole dish. A little extra sauce and a generous sprinkling of parmesan later though, and I’ve never been so happy to admit I was wrong. Aged cheeses seem to agree with me just fine, so parmesan was a great solution. If you can’t take that, then experiment with your favorite dairy free cheese. You’ll be glad you did!
