3 Styles Lasagna in Trisagna Pan with Alfredo Recipe
In our home Lasagna is a dish seen frequently on the table. My Italian grandma served up many pasta dishes. Over the years I have changed up some of the minor details to suit our own tastes. I even have a few on the blog. For Christmas I received a Trisagna pan from my oldest son. I don’t really like change in my cooking but the pan seemed to fit my needs. We have 2 vegetarians so I make a marinara sauce. We have 2 meat lovers so that sauce is full of different meats I have on hand. And then there is my granddaughter who is a picky eater. The only sauce she will eat is alfredo. I made it once and it didn’t go over to well but everyone ate it. So this pan was perfect for everyone. And Jovie helped me. There was a lot of guessing since this pan was so different. Not only did I need to divide my different sauces among the 3 wells I wasn’t sure what portions I would need. And since the pan was much deeper than normal that made some changes necessary. The one thing I didn’t consider was cook times would be different. The red sauces weren’t absorbed as much making them runny. And the alfredo sauce was from a jar and meant to top pasta, not hold it together. That was even soupier than the others. Jovie decided not to eat it and instead ate a whole package of mixed veggies. The rest of us ate with a spoon. At least now I have perfected the recipes. As we all shared our thoughts poor Jovie could barely hold back her tears. Once we all explained it takes at least a half dozen times to perfect a recipe she cheered up and ate ALL the garlic bread. We decided to use the pan next time making bread. Lesson learned.
Homemade Cream of Broccoli Soup
When I make soup from scratch you can bet it is more than likely to be a cream based soup. I don’t make my own broth but this is still delicious and warm when served to the family. In the winter it is a meal in itself when half a sandwich is added. In the warmer weather I still serve soup but pair it with a fresh salad made with greens and veggies straight from the garden. You will definitely be upping your game when you place this on the table and serve to a hungry family.
