A Great Lasagna Recipe

Okay, I'm totally going to cheat here and just tell you about someone else's lasagna recipe. A few weeks ago, I was trying to decide what to make for our weekly family dinner and lasagna popped in my head. I have never had a great recipe for lasagna. In fact, I've rarely made it, but once I had the thought, I had to make some.

Did an online search for lasagna recipes and found this incredible website with the best recipe. It was easy to make, absolutely delicious, got raves from the family and I will be making it over and over again.

One of the things I used to dislike about making lasagna was boiling the noodles and then having to fight with the slimy things to get them in the pan nicely. This recipe calls for the noodles to be soaked in hot tap water for 15 minutes ... that's it. Then they get layered in with all the other ingredients. It's completely genius!

So I made a pan of lasagna (this thing weighed about 10 pounds), a romaine salad with grape tomatoes and a chocolate bundt cake for dessert (my personal favorite). We washed it all down with a nice bottle of Clos Du Bois Pinot Noir.

The lasagna recipe makes a ton of food and the leftovers are delicious, too. This may be one of those dishes that just keeps getting better over the next few days. I highly recommend it and your family will love you for making it!

It's only 8:30 am and I'm already wishing it was dinner time. The cake looks amazing!!!

I have a great lasanga reciepe already but I love the idea of just soaking the noodles - that is the worst part. I'm going to have to look this one up.

Now, give the recipe for the chocolate bundt cake. That looked great! I normally make blueberry cheesecake with my lasanga.

You've given me an idea, I have a lasagna recipe passed down through the generations and I love it, maybe I should put it out there for people to try. I'm very tempted by your doughnut!! YUM!

Yummy! Soaking the noodles is pure genius! Now, maybe I'll make lasagna more often.
