It's Lasagna Night

United States
January 13, 2016 4:21pm CST
Well my friends, I spent the afternoon making a nice lasagna in the new lasagna pan I got for Christmas. This is the second time I've used the pan (the first time I made eggplant parmesan). The weather is sunny but cold today so I decided to spend some time in the kitchen and make a lasagna for dinner. It really didn't require as much effort as I thought it would and now it's in the oven baking. I'll have plenty to freeze for future meals and it was nice to have a perfect pan for my creation. Makes me wonder why I waited so long to ask for a lasagna pan.

I didn't know there was a specific pan just for lasagna. What a great idea. I love lasagna...have any left overs?

@simone10 it's not necessarily a pan specific for lasagna but it's just a large rectangular baking dish maybe a little bigger than the standard 9x13 (which I didn't have)

Lasagne (we tend to spell it with the e in england) is one of my most favourite dishes I make it quite often with the dried pasta sheets but have made my own fresh from scratch a few times and think it was pretty good. A few times I've made it with minced turkey and once with minced venison and that was really nice.

Actually quite interesting to look up the different spellings.

@Mike197602 I've never attempted to make my own pasta even though it looks fairly easy. Lasagna (or lasagne) is so versatile that you can pretty much make it any which way you want. Whether you spell it with an a or an e it still tastes good

@Marilynda1225 it tastes great and you're right it is a very versatile dish. You've inspired me to make more variations of the classic recipe

I love to cook, and am always trying new recipes. I got two cookie sheets for Christmas and I have been making some great sour-cream biscuits in them, and I have been freezing them for days of biscuits and jelly, or butter, kind of appetizers. Have a great day my friend.

@tuttiharris I need some new baking sheets as mine as starting to show signs of wear. Your sour cream biscuits sound delicious

@Marilynda1225 I always use one of my 9x13 casserole dishes, I didn't even know there was a special pan for lasagne, lol.

@gr8nana6 it's basically similar to a standard 9x13 baking dish but this one is a bit deeper and it's from the company called Temptations (they sell on QVC and also have their own site..temptations.com).

Lasagna is very good and you can make a bunch of it and freeze it.

I often have lasagna when we go out as Vince doesn't like it so we never have it at home.

Lasagna is popular in my family so I make it a few times a year. Usually when I'm having company but yesterday I felt ambitious and decided to freeze portions for meals down the road

@Marilynda1225 One of our friends of a group who meet regularly makes great lasagna and if we meet for a pot luck supper she will bring lasagna - and I eat at least my share. :)

Well I guess you invited Garfield instead of me!! We are having a cold wave here in Fort Lauderdale---only a high of 71 today and down into the 50s tonight! Remember this is Southern Florida--we want it hot and humid! I'll never understand how anyone can have 'plenty to freeze for future meals'--I don't believe in or ever have leftovers!!!

@bellestarr I like making meals that I can freeze for later . I'd rather cook once and reheat than have to cook every night

Lasagna is my go to meal for a crowd. I only know how to make two at a time, so generally I will freeze one if or a quick meal in the future.

@morleyhunt I don't usually make lasagna unless I'm having company but I felt ambitious and had the ingredients on hand.

This is such a great dinner idea. I have been cooking to stay warm as well. LOL I like to put it together, refrigerate or freeze it for 24 hours and then cook it. I don't know what the difference is, except maybe the noodles are softer.

I love lasagna, but it is not a food that my husband can eat because of his kidney disease ... no cheese, no red meat, no tomato sauce. However, I do love it myself.

Awesome. I've never made lasagna. I know, you don't need to look at that comment in horror. I'e always wanted to, but never had opportunity, so all the lasagna I've had was store bought or pot luck. I do have a package of lasagna noodles I bought some time ago with the intention of finally making my own. I just need to have the time and the ingredients to do so.
