I’m Spicing Things Up: Lasagna

I’m cooking again!

Well, only a little bit. Lately when I try to cook something or just think about cooking, it makes me feel sick.

But on Friday it was Brett’s birthday and he had asked for Lasagna so I was determinded to make it.

I was really excited because I finally got to use my Pioneer Woman Cookbook! Her recipe looked pretty simple and super yummy so I thought I would try. I had made a veggie lasagna a while ago and it was pretty good but never a meat lasagna, and I was hoping this was going to be great.

Oh let me tell you how wonderful it was.

First I had to cook the beef and sausage with garlic, oh my the smell was divine.

Then I made the cheese mixture. This recipe calls for cottage cheese instead of the usual ricotta which I think made it so much better. And of course lots of mozzarella.

Before the oven…

After the oven…

And on to our plates…

If you are dying for a fabulous lasagna dish you need this. Let me know and I will pass it along.

And since it was Brett’s birthday I just had to make cupcakes.

Happy Birthday Brett!

p.s. it’s not the best idea to let your husband and 1 year old eat cupcakes on the couch.
