Local Lasagna















I was inspired last week by 101 Cookbooks's Thousand Layer Lasagne. Heidi's pictures are beautiful and always make me want to cook. Inspired I was, but homemade pasta and sauce just didn't happen. I went to the Market and bought ricotta from Meister Foods and sheets of egg pasta from Ohio City Pasta. Then I went on a little field trip and picked up sauce and mozzarella cheese from Gallucci's. I rolled the pasta sheets as thin as I could with a rolling pin and ended up with about about 9 layers of pasta.

I like Heidi's recipes, too, but so far I haven't made a single one, even though I keep bookmarking them.

Thanks for wishing me a happy b-day! Your lasagna looks amazing – and Galluchi’s is another of my fav. lunch spots!

Ok, here's a question for you -- the last time I made lasagna with OCP pasta sheets, it practically melted into the sauce (in a not-so-yummy-way). Think I should keep a layer of cheese on either side of it to "seal" it off? (Or am I just revealing my love of cheese here?)

I love all that cheese too! Did you boil the noodles first? I did not. That may have made a difference.
