A New Recipe: Roasted Vegetable Lasanga
I tried a new recipe over Easter. Apparently I break what is a culinary cardinal rule. You should never experiment on guests. It seems like I've made a career of doing exactly that. Because when I have guests I'm usually looking for something a little bit different and interesting rather than plain, old, whatever-we-normally-have. Not that guests would know the difference I suppose. My parents think our 'normal' is like being in a restaurant. I beg to differ, but I imagine that's all a matter of perspective.
Anyway, I wanted a roasted vegetable lasagne recipe and I found a really good one here. Our only problem with the recipe was the use of tomato pesto. I ended up making my own pesto last night so that I could use pine nuts instead of cashews, as Miss Sunshine has a nut allergy but is fine with the pine nuts. I got that recipe from here.
I have some vegies leftover for someone's lunch and whole night's worth of lasagna in my freezer for another day. I think after a trip to Costco to refill my freezer I'll be ready to get into another school term. Almost.
