After an afternoon with the youngest the time for a decision about what to have for dinner emerged; being my day off I like to use my time to cook. I decided upon lasagna. Now here is the catch I've never made lasagna. So I thought about what it is about lasagna that I love the most: the red sauce, the meat on the bottom, and the cheese mixture.
sauteed onions, green peppers, and carrots in butter.
Added some merlot for reduction. -- yes, unlike Miles, I cook with and drink merlot
Plopped in a can of fire roasted tomatoes.
Sprinkled some salt.
Placed it all in the blender till smooth.
In a separate pan I fried some turkey legs and ground beef.
Ricotta tub, Parmesan cheese chunk, and shredded mozzarella and a whipped egg.
I assembled in a 13 X 9 pan first the sauce, then meat, noodles, cheese, sauce and meat, repeated again a few times then topped with shredded cheese.
