Lasagna is perhaps the most well known of Italian entrees, second only to Spaghetti. This oven baked dish has a long history in Europe.

Making Easy Lasagna Recipe is Easy and Entertaining

Cooking Italian cuisine calls for several types of kitchen pots and pans, as well as utensils. A pasta pot is a great thing to have. Not only is it used to cook the long noodles found in many Italian recipes, it is a fantastic pot for cooking soups and stews. Both 10-inch and 12-inch skillets with tight-fitting lids are equally useful. Spaghetti sauce tends to splatter when simmering and a cover will prevent a lengthy cleanup. When making your own special sauce, make a double batch and freeze the second half for the next lasagna or pasta recipe.

A sharp peeler for carrots and sharp knives for cutting garlic, celery, and onions make the work easier. Measuring spoons are very inexpensive and two sets lets you measure liquids with one set and dry items such as herbs and spices with the other. A slotted spoon and tongs are other utensils that will make the job easier.

Use oil, butter, or non-stick spray to keep the sauce from sticking in the pan. Use fresh herbs when they are available and allow for the conversion between fresh and dried herbs. Growing an indoor herb garden is fun and provides a ready supply of some of the most frequently used herbs found in recipes. Continue reading

Perfect Ingredients for a Basic Lasagna Recipe

Basic lasagna consists of pasta, sauce and some type of cheese. Other ingredients turn this everyday dish into something special. Cheese, of course, is vital because of the different colors and flavors available. Tangy sharp cheddar with its incredible orange and fresh mozzarella with its delicate white provides a pronounced statement to the meal. A blend of Colby Jack cheese renders both colors and flavors and since appeal is a big part of appreciating a meal, cheese plays a big part in lasagna.

Vegetables are wonderful additions to lasagna. Add yellow zucchini squash to lasagnas with white sauce and green zucchini to lasagnas featuring red sauce. Fresh or frozen spinach brings a lovely decoration to the filling between layers and is equally nice with pieces scattered across the top. Celery, garlic, and onions add flavor and consistency. A favorite vegetable is not really a vegetable at all.

Tomatoes are really a fruit but serve as a vegetable in many dishes, including sauces, salads, and lasagna. Tomatoes, like potatoes, gained a reputation as poisonous for many centuries because they are a member of the nightshade family and have quite a bit of acid, especially when green. Once ripe tomatoes gained acceptance as an edible food, they became a basic part of cuisine, particularly that of the Mediterranean area. Continue reading
