Lasagna Tips

My top 3 lasagna tips

I was reminded lately of the time, maybe 6 or 7 years into marriage, when I asked my husband what his favorite food was.  I, of course, thought that I knew…any Mexican food…right???!?  Wrong.  He said lasagna.  I though to myself, I hadn’t ever made lasagna, so he must be wrong 😉  I better get to making some lasagna around my house.  Lasagna seemed so tricky.  Sooooo many layers!  Frozen lasagna will have to do.  Wrong again! I soon realized that lasagna doesn’t have to be hard to make.  It is actually pretty easy with the right ingredients and a few tips.

LASAGNA TIPS!

  1. BROWN IT!!!  Bake your lasagna with foil covering it, but make sure to take the foil off for the last 15-20 minutes.  It will not only look prettier, but it will make your cheese get all crispy/melty and good.  Who doesn’t like crispy/melty cheese!?!
  2. REST!!!  Not you, the lasagna.  This is the hardest part for me.  Pull it out of the oven and let it rest for 20-30 minutes before you start digging in.  It will help the cheese and sauce to run all over your plate.  You can do it!  Willpower people!
  3. SAUCE IT UP!!!  I have found that using some key store-bought ingredients can make your homemade lasagna so much quicker and easier.  I love Bertolli pasta sauce, because there are so many options.  I love the tuscan-inspired Bertolli Tomato & Basil sauce, but you can totally transform your lasagna with a different sauce.  I have used Bertolli Alfredo Sauce and made Chicken Alfredo Lasagna.  I find these varieties at my local Smith’s (Kroger) or you can check them out here http://www.villabertolli.com/.  Seriously, try switching the sauce in your favorite lasagna recipe.  It will wow your friends and family.  They will think you are the real deal and super fancy! Because you are 🙂
