Lasagna is along the same lines with me as my Chili. In a past blog, I went through my Evolution of my Chili. I don’t think anyone read it, which is great, but I don’t wanna invest in that much time or that many words. I apologize (for apologizing) for any (not really) inconvenience.
The best Lasagna that I have ever made, involved Béchamel sauce. Which in French translates to “not Vegan” or something like that. I have created Ⓥicotta, a delightful VEGAN combination of Béchamel & Ricotta Cheese.
And of course Lasagna is never successful or possible, even, without a great sauce. In my case it’s my Back Burner Ragu Marinara. And now I am obligated to find throwback pictures to commemorate my Italian roots.
