You know, I was just thinking about lasagna. I have the ricotta, spinach and mozzerella, plus frozen spaghetti sauce in the freezer. . But I don't have the lasagna noodles or any frozen ravioli, which I sometimes substitute.
I do have a huge Sam's package of spaghetti, dried tortellini, and some kind of Italian pasta that looks like a little ear.
I know it won't be exactly lasagna, but I'll bet it will still be good!

Which of the pastas I have on hand would your choose?

I would choose the little ears (orichettis?) because I've never had them. Go for it, Connie!

That's the name...thank you bug!

I'll let you know how it turns out, but really, how can it be bad?

Can't wait to hear about everyone's lasagna! I'm in major lazy mode so I'd better get my butt in gear and get that sucker made!

Well this is weird. I've never posted on here before, but my plan for tomorrow is lasagna, if I am ambitious enough. I make home made sauce always! I also make home made noodles, but I may buy a box if I feel too lazy. We usually like a lasagna with chicken and fresh cooked spinach, along with the sauce, and cheeses. But I may do a meat version, with cooked ground beef in the sauce. I let my sauce cook for 2-3 hours. I also add pepperoni for extra flavor.

Well, it was a big hit here. I used up some gouda cheese that had been sitting in the fridge far too long, and it added so much gooey yumminess to the lasagna. I also used a spinach tomato sauce with my ground beef and THAT was yummy too. Madeleine wasn't all that happy about it, but the rest of us LOVED it.

I am a bit surprised you all cooked lasagna with a tomato sauce (not that there is anything wrong with that.. )

Here's two I made a while ago:

Lasagna with salmon:


I made a white sauce and added some boiled cod and used layers of smoked salmon... and fresh lasagna!

And 2 days ago I made Lasagna carbonara
Cheese saus and pancetta (bacon)

I made my regular with cottage, mozzerella and parm cheeses, beef.
I made me a veggie with red bells, yellow squash, eggplant and artichoke with red sauce, mozz and asiago cheese. I love it. Asiago tastes like romano cheese. Made cherry cheesecake too.
QUESTION: Will the meat lasagna still be good for lunch Monday? I don't know how to make just a little and I still have 3/4 of a 9x13 pan full and if I take it to work, it won't be wasted.

Hey Texas,
sure your lasagne will still be good. I always cover it and save it and we have leftovers on the 3rd or 4th day.As long as it's kept cold it will be fine. And you will have a great lunch.
