Total Time: 6 hrs
Notes: We made the noodles from scratch from Small Victories’ recipe, followed Nothing Fancy’s sauce recipe but added yogurt to get a pink-ish sauce, then did our own cheese (1.5 lbs mozzarella, 1 lb ricotta, 1 cup Parmesan), and lastly added fresh basil to each of the layers
Review: Lasagna makes for the perfect weekend meal. It’s time intensive, but not too fussy, and god damn is it all worth it when at the end of the day you’re pulling out that tray of pasta, cheese and sauce, and are able to bask in all of its perfectly browned and bubbling glory. We’ve been going the fresh pasta route because fuck it, we had no weekend plans anyway, and this way we can pretend we’re an elevated form of human being before we meet the great leveler (the L Train) on Tuesday. Our lack of social life and delusions of grandeur aside, the fresh made pasta really is totally worth it; plus, rolling out the pasta sheets is actually quite therapeutic and you can’t eat your therapist.
