lust on ya


C
afeteria food is in order for the next few days since we have house guests (8 in the house total) from all points west. We will get to feel what it feels like to feed a large family, and while we will most likely be enjoying the fruits that NYC has to offer we will still eat a few meals at home and for starters we will have hunks of lasagna.



I didnt use any sauce and I didnt boil the pasta sheets before hand because I am radical like that.



One hundred percent vegetarian with the sauce on the side.

That's good lasagna, I can tell by the looks! There is no need for meat to make a good lasagna you know! Hope you enjoy your guests! (to be with them not to eat them obviously)

Jenn said...

You're a rebel without a sauce!!! (and uncooked pasta)

Looks good. I gotta try that some time.

buffalodick said...

Looked darn good, no matter how who did it, or what was in it!

Marjie said...

Welcome to a sample of my little world! Nice lasagna. I hate preboiling noodles, too.

doggybloggy said...

anette: we shall see how it goes....

jenn: it made the pasta perfectly al dente

buff: all of the above...

marjie: I thought of you when I typed this up...

Stacey Snacks said...

I agree w/ Jen. Rebel without sauce. What a unique delicious (and simple) looking lasagne.
I'll take a slice, please.
Have a great Easter with your family/guests.

Joy said...

If it turns out well (surprise if it doesn't), more details, please, for those of us who need them. Thank you for your time and attention.

Hope all of you have a grand time!

Mel @ bouchonfor2.com said...

What kind of pasta did you end up using? Fresh pasta? (because I know there's also these weird dry no-precooking pasta for lasagne now)

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog :) How you've given me a new one to follow! I look forward to new posts.

Maya said...

Lasagna with fresh tomatoes! Nice, light dish!

Creative Mish said...

OMG! This looks fabulous! and those tomatoes look heavenly! you know real Italians don't boil their noodles. The noodles soak up the juices from the other ingredients while baking.

Dawn said...

a nice thick lasagna, what a great way to welcome guests. yeah, I agree, preboiling is dinosaur age.

doggybloggy said...

stacey: you too - I hope you and mister snacks and the whole extended snackdom have a nice day

joy: e mail me I will give details...

mel: regular pasta...

maya: fresh tomatoes- fresh spinach and fresh basil with ricotta and mozzarella and olive oil.

mish: thats exactly what it did - it absorbed perfectly...

dawn: I often make this with home made pasta and that does need a quick blanching...

Beth said...

I love lasagna that doesn't fall apart when you cut it...and you get to see all the layers inside. this one fits the bill.

welcome to my lifeDog, on feeding a large family! ;)

HAPPY EASTER to you and yours.

XOXOXOXOX

Bina said...

Never heard of making lasagna that way, and it sure looks good. And you know what else? I've never about NOT putting meat in there. I'll have to try that next time and see if my family notices.

Happy Easter!

snugs said...

doggybloggy said...

beth: happy easter to everyone over in your neck of the woods too - yup a dozen eggs is good for one go round

bina: happy easter to you and yours as well - yeah - vegetarian isnt just for vegetarians you know

snugs: happy easter - I am dealing with it - its only day two

Ramya Vijaykumar said...

By the way did you count me in your guest list??? Nice Lasagna Christo once in a while I did prefer to have everything vegan...

Elyse said...

Wow, that lasagna looks amazing. Have a great time with your guests!

Donna-FFW said...

Radical is a nice quality in a man. Lasagne looks absolutely like something I would enjoy. Your guests must LOVE you.

LK- Healthy Delicious said...

this looks awesome! I love the idea of the sauce on the side. I bet this was so fresh tasting with all of those tomatoes and basil- yum!

lisaiscooking said...

Delicious looking lasagna! Those tomatoes look amazing.

TavoLini said...

oh yum! That looks excellent!! I like the "sauce on the side" idea. (did you use ricotta??)

doggybloggy said...

ramya: sure - you can be on the guest list - why not

elyse: hitting all the tourist spots

donna: just bending those rules to suit my needs - I guess they have to love me they are family....

healthy: light and tasty not bogged down by heavy sauce....

lisaiscooking: another one of my favorite ways to make this is with alternating tomato and zucchini

tavolini: no, maybe, why?

Tanya Kristine said...

Mo Diva said...

That is insane! It looks phenomenal!!!

The Diva on a Diet said...

You had me at lust ... and then those pictures did me in. This looks amazing, doggy! I hope the visit is going well. Cheers and happy Easter!

snugs said...

I got mail today! Thank you for the goodies- call me when you can break free from the family for a minute, I don't know what to do with some of the stuff

Just telling it like it is said...

I like radical

Belle said...

Eighteen. E-I-G-H-T-E-E-N in the house this holiday. I spent the entire time in the kitchen. I need a holiday, do you have a room?

Jeff said...

nicely done! How did you like it without boiling the noodles? I did a manicotti last night and debated not boiling them. In the end I got scared and still boiled.

The Duo Dishes said...

That's cheesey and pasta-y to the max. You know it's good eatin!
