Also, your leftovers sound divine.
I think those meatballs would be great with the mustard aioli I made to go with the grilled potatoes

Thumbs up Homemade Pasta

Oy, my aching feet, my back, OY! What was I thinking?

My darling husband had made mention that it's been awhile since I made Lasagne.

(don'tcha just love the crispy bits on the edge of the pan? MY!)

Yesterday, I woke up with this wild idea that I'd make Lasagne with homemade pasta and sauce.

I started this endeavor at 11 o'clock this morning, just as a point of reference

Made the sauce with San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes (canned from Italy, so easy to find nowadays). Bubble, bubble, bubble... let that perk for about an hour... next,
Made the pasta dough, let it rest.
Browned a pound of fresh ground Chuck.
Grated a pound of whole milk Mozzarella.
Grated up some Grana Padano (a nicer Parmesan cheese and cheaper too).
Sheet-ed the pasta on my Kitchen Aid attachment, parboiled it for 30 seconds, drained, dried and then..
time to assemble.

SHNIKIES!!

That baby weighed a ton!
Well, really it was 10 1/2 pounds, I weighed it

It came out of the oven at 4 o'clock and then it needed to rest for 10 minutes (with fork in hand), bar none, the longest 10 minutes in my adoring husband's day.
He had himself what he's calling,
"...semi-dinner, we'll have the main event at 630 this evening with a salad and some Italian bread."


I had a coupla sheets of pasta leftover once I had the pan in the oven, so I sliced that pasta into strips, boiled it the rest of the way, drained it well, added some jarred Pesto Sauce I had stashed in the `fridge, along with some cooking water, some grated Parm (Grana) some Olive Oil, fresh cracked black pepper, gave it all a good stir and that was lunch.

I do love fresh homemade pasta in any form

Kgirl, that looks wonderful and phew, that was a long bout of cooking.

You let the pasta dough rise?

I was going to make a loaded salad, but Stirling asked if I would like for him to order Indian food. The Indian food was excellent. I looked up "beef patiala". Yes, there is cilantro in it. I was beginning to suspect that cooked cilantro wasn't obnoxious/disgusting like fresh cilantro.

Looks good, kgirl. I haven't had lasagna in quite a while. Might have to take 1/2 a day and make some. Yum.

k-girl, I love the side view of the lasagna - you can see all those layers! Your dinner sounds scrumptious.

We had...leftovers. I really need to learn to cook for two. As a prelude, I made salads. Well, technically, I made one. Himself finished up the "normal" (his word) salad from last night. I fixed myself one with baby greens, strawberries and blueberries, almonds and queso fresco cheese.

I let the dough rest, covered, for at least 30 minutes.
This allows the flour to absorb the egg.
The dough is quite sticky when first finished, but after that siesta, all systems GO!

Ya know CherylJ, I couldn't remember when was the last time I made Lasagne, but boy howdy! Them's good eats! DH keeps dipping in a spoon, "oops, there's a stray bit there, let me just clean up your pan there Dear."

CG, if you ever find the secret for cooking for two, please let me know! I usually cook for eight even though just two of us live here... We live off leftovers.

Rest, of course, that makes perfect sense. Better clean my glasses. I could have sworn you wrote that you let it rise.
