I can’t wait for it to cool off enough to make lasagna! And if you don’t mind, how did you make ricotta? It’s obscenely expensive here, and I love it in a wide variety of things.
I’ve also put hot dogs on my grocery list; I’ve got some hot dog chili my brother-in-law made.
Tonight was “what do I have in the cupboard” night since I forgot to take anything out of the freezer. Gnocchi and baby purple potatoes with bacon in garlic scape pesto (bought in Maine from someone’s porch). Yum!
I used the recipe from Epicurious but I had to double it to make the amount of lasagna I made. I will copy and paste it.
