Fancy Comfort Food: Lasagna

I think we can all pull out a few fond memories of family meals with lasagna serving as the center piece. Its caramelized edges, its bubbling cheesy top, its mouth-watering goodness ... it's for all those reasons I consider lasagna to be fancy comfort food.

But aside from the obvious fact that it's incredibly yummy, I think one of the biggest appeals of the dish is that its super simple to make and the ingredients are totally basic.

Naturally, the majority of people choose to prepare lasagna the traditional way: flat pasta, cheese, meat, and tomato sauce, but you can be as creative and innovative as you want to be, like with our Mexican Lasagna or Spinach Chavrie Lasagna. Also, for you veggie lovers out there, you can always turn this into a vegetarian dish. It doesn't take anything away from all the tasty goodness of traditional lasagna!

Quick Tips:
  • If you are totally pressed for time, adding water to your sauce helps cook the pasta during baking and cuts about 15 minutes off your prep time.
  • Lasagna can be refrigerated (unbaked) for up to two days before baking and frozen for up to one month. Just remember to seal everything properly, so it's air-tight and it will taste just as good as if you just whipped it up!
