Tonight was a vegetable lasagna using zucchini, yellow squash and eggplant instead of pasta.

I also made a lasagna with pasta. I like to use a meat sauce with Italian sausage and meatballs when making lasagna but this time I also used a layer of pepperoni in one of the layers (I usually do four layers). It was a big hit! I will do that again!


I always think that the food will last longer than it does!

    Agnes!!!  That looks and sounds delicious.  I love the idea of pepperoni in there.  I wonder if CC will think we're heathens for that.  Too bad!

      No no no. Agnes...is not a heathen!

      It's good to see some great lookin' Italian food from New Jersey!

      I was gettin' nervous that I'd have to start smokin' stuff...when I return.

      That would be trouble.

          Finally tried Umami Burger in Palo Alto, and got the "Manly Burger" which has beer-cheddar cheese, smoked-salt onion strings, and bacon lardon on a 6-oz. patty.  I loved it, but my arteries won't, so it will be a very occasional indulgence!


          Happy you loved it, it looks great........I always wanted to go there...........pnwc

            Agnes!  You left enough for me!
             
            I had..... a Smashburger!  I chose the Mushroom Swiss and loved the combination of flavors.
             
            Ordered the onion straws and flash fried vegetables which won't be ordered again.  Greasy and salty.

              Agnes, that looks fabulous! Can you share a recipe? I tried to do lasagna using eggplant instead of pasta and failed miserably...came out more like stew.
               
              Dinner tonight will be pizza rolls. They're in the oven now since I just got home from work.

                felix, the key that I learned through trial and error is slicing all the vegetables you are using in lieu of pasta about 1/4 of an inch thick and roasting them in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes with a little drizzle of olive oil and some salt and pepper.
                That gets a good portion of the moisture out and concentrates the flavor. I make it that way for my husband, who needs to be conscience of his carb intake, using zucchini, yellow squash and this time also eggplant. Everything else I do is what I would do making lasagna with pasta, including the pepperoni layer and meat sauce.
                Thanks for all of the comments everyone!

                  *smacks self on forehead* Roasting! It never occurred to me to roast it! Good lord, but I feel dumb. Every other casserole I make with eggplant I roast it first...why I couldn't figure out to apply that to lasagna is completely beyond me.  Thank you!
                   
                  Speaking of which...tonight I did an eggplant alfredo casserole, served with baked chicken thighs seasoned with Italian-Romano seasoning blend.

                          Last night I grill-charred 3 poblanos, 2 jalapenos, and 7 cloves of garlic and blended them with olive oil, white wine, and lime juice to make a marinade.  3 pounds of chicken wings are soaking it up right now and I'm looking forward to having them for dinner tonight.

                                    Im not telling you will come and steal all my sweet corn! 
                                     
                                    The "Location" listed came from an Easter Egg in my favorite band's album of the same name.  If you followed all the clues hidden in the liner notes and solved the puzzle, you got to be on a special list, those people on the list had various "deaths" attributed to white lake.
                                     
                                    I was one of 54 people to fully figure out the hidden clues and solve the puzzle. (which the answer I will take to my grave)  So I get to be at the bottom of White Lake, where my body ended up after solving the puzzle.

                                            Mmm mm mm!!  Where's the bottom of White Lake, anyway??? 


                                            Im not telling you will come and steal all my sweet corn! 

                                            The "Location" listed came from an Easter Egg in my favorite band's album of the same name.  If you followed all the clues hidden in the liner notes and solved the puzzle, you got to be on a special list, those people on the list had various "deaths" attributed to white lake.

                                            I was one of 54 people to fully figure out the hidden clues and solve the puzzle. (which the answer I will take to my grave)  So I get to be at the bottom of White Lake, where my body ended up after solving the puzzle.


                                            OK, who is your favorite band?

                                                  Chicken breast marinated and baked in homemade BBQ sauce, with roasted Brussels sprouts, red potatoes, parsnips and onion. Vegetables drizzled with balsamic and olive oil, then sprinkled with garlic powder and salt-free seasoning.

Primarily so I could freeze a bunch of individual portions for when work picks up again.
