This is my baby boy’s last Sunday dinner, before he returns to college, and he wants this last Sunday meal to be the best. Today, he asked that I prepare Turkey & Spinach lasagna, which is one of my family’s favorites. I love to make their favorites, and hear them say:”M’mm, M’mm good!”
Well, I’m really going to make this lasagna exceptional. I need to send the boy back to school with fond memories of home. I think it will help him to stay focused, knowing he has a family back home that loves him, and a mom who cooks all his favorites.
Preparing lasagna can be a little time-consuming, so you really have to be in the mood and have time to prepare. And, being the meticulous cook that I am, I make sure I give myself enough time to get all the ingredients prepped. When preparing a dish like lasagna, I make sure that I clean while cooking — a lesson I learned from my late mother.
The one thing I like about lasagna is that it is a meal in itself. You actually don’t need to prepare anything else. However, I usually prepare a garden salad and serve garlic rolls. Yum!
Since I rarely cook with recipes, I always prepare the lasagna different from the last time. While preparing, I usually stumble upon a technique, which either saves time, or makes best use of ingredients. The only thing that never changes is the taste — always good to the end!
