“It’s SOOOO Cheesy!”

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

That was the response when I fed the kindergartener my homemade spinach & mushroom lasagna.  Not bad for a little kid, who generally prefers red sauce and is a super sausage fiend.  He was so sweet…”you’re a really good cooker”….and of course, the reply is “well, you’re a REALLY good eater!”.  (No kidding, he ate 3x an adult portion, LOL!!!!).

Spinach Lasagna done


I read a couple of different recipes (Emeril, Tyler, Food Network, AllRecipes), and did a combination, per the usual.  My final recipe is here.

Do give it a try, it is spectacular.  The roasting of the mushrooms, and really squeezing the moisture out of the spinach gives it a beautiful texture.  Plus, how can you beat spinach, baby bellos, and 4 cheeses?  Not even my Gators can do that!

My internet pal the Wrathful Brunette sent me a small cattleya seedling last year for my birthday, it was probably about two to three years old.  After hanging out on my patio for the last sixteen months, it is a now a “first bloom seedling”….and is she ever a beauty!
