My son’s favorite thing in the world is lasagna. Bad thing is – I hate making it. It takes so long to bake a homemade lasagna, and I just don’t have time to make it as often as he would like.
So I’ve decided to make a compromise with him – and try skillet lasagna. He was pretty hesitant at first. He wanted the noodles to be straight and neat in the lasagna pan, but I I finally managed to convince him that it would taste the same, even though it might not look the same.
So I started with a pretty basic bolognese – ground beef, lots of veggies and lots of wine (per Paula’s instructions). I had ran out of fresh herbs, so I reached to my KitchenAid refrigerator door to grab my Garden Gourmet herbs. They are super convenient, they come in a tube, and you just use as much as you need.
Then after the sauce was done, I added the noodles and scooped in some ricotta and sprinkled on lots of mozzarella. Then I just let it simmer until it was done.
My son forgot all about this skillet being cooked in the skillet after he tried it. He actually liked it better because it was more saucy.
And did you notice that skillet? What a work of art! The folks at Nambe sent it too me for review. This skillet preforms as beautifully as it looks. And they are shiny too! That brown blob you see reflecting in the skillet is Coco my dog, with my son right behind him wondering when the pictures are going to be done, and they can eat!
Here’s your chance to win 4 of these gorgeous pans ( an 8, 10, 12 and 14 inches size as shown below)
I received the skillet shown for review purposes.
