Winter Lasagna

Isn’t there something incredibly comforting about lasagna? Is it the memories of eating it at family potlucks or the rich, decadent layers of cheese and deliciousness?

cold spell came through when Hurricane Sandy was badgering the New England area.  It’s been a mild fall in the South, but I used the chilling temperatures to inspire my cooking.  My first thought went to lasagna.  I don’t make lasagna often, nor do I eat it often.  Although, it seems to appear more frequently on dining room tables around winter holidays.

I used the recipe from Pioneer Woman for the Best Lasagna Ever.  What did I learn? Lasagna is delicious, but it requires at least 1.5-2 hours of prep time.  Every is cooked on the stove before assembling into the beautiful Christmas layers and baked in the oven. I haven’t eaten enough lasagna to be a connoisseur, but it was amazing!
