Lasagna For One?

So, Eric is back in Denver dealing with 'He Who Shall Remain Unnamed So That I May Avoid the Use of Extreme Profanity'.  While I do miss him, I also enjoy a bit of time to myself.  Sadly, most of my time has been spent cleaning.  But, I like a clean home so it's a win/win.

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage

I contemplated going out to dinner on my own tonight.  With all my traveling for my previous job, dining alone is something I'm used to and rather enjoy.  However, I thought it would be a nice gesture to cook something that Eric could enjoy tomorrow when he gets home.

EVOO and 4 cloves of garlic

So, lasagna it is.  

Eric's Garden


Fresh basil from Eric's garden

I don't cook on a regular basis.  And when I do cook it is QUITE rare that I use the same recipe twice.  I look at cooking as a challenge and I don't find it challenging to make the same thing more than once.

Parmesan, Mozzarella, and Fontina = Cheesy Goodness! 

So, while this is not the healthiest lasagna I've ever made, I'm hoping it is delicious.  It's currently cooling on the counter.  Therefore, I must make this a short tummy is rumbling!

Eric...I hope this gives you FOUR things to look forward to, Grace, Cyrus, and homemade lasagna with ingredients from your garden!

I hope it tastes as good as it looks!  Ciao!


  1. Holy moly - now I'm hungry - what time are leftovers?!?!?

    Ok, now for the serious question - what wine accompanied?

  2. If I were ever going to let people eat my cooking...this would be the dish. It turned out better than anything I've ever made!!!

    And I know lasagna is best served with red, but I drank a Coppola Pino Grigio with it and loved every drop! :0)

  3. this dish looks so tasty, i really need to try it.
