    Girrrl you crack me up and right before leaving the Kroger I was working in I thought about that recipe of Miss Bernie’s too. Shredded cheese was on sale and I thought I would make some lasagna. Well that Kroger at least doesn’t sell the contadina garlic sauce. Got the rest of my stuff and will have to make a second trip to another store. Got the wine too, so I should be ready to make it on Sunday. I will sing Mama Mia while I do it since that’s about all I know in Italian and think of you and her. LOL

    • I don’t make lasagna as often anymore. (Slick is lactose intolerant… is that TMI?)

      My kids’ fav is Chicken Spaghetti – just smothered chicken in red gravy served over pasta… I switch up the pasta shape to shake things up! I loved using the immersion blender to puree the veggies because they were in there but the boys didn’t know it.

    I love spending Sunday (no that’s not the only day I cook) in the kitchen cooking for the family, listening to music and sippin’ a little vino. It doesn’t matter what you are cooking, if it starts with sauteing the trinity in olive oil your house is going to smell like love. Ladybugs are lucky right, so eating a ladybug must be lucky too!

    • I’ll stick to setting the ladybugs free! (They eat aphids, you know. Aphids bad. Ladybugs good!)

  3. One of my favorite pasttimes is cooking and one of my more favorite things to cook is ITALIAN! Being Italian and married to an Italian, I can never go wrong with a good hearty lasagna and homemade gravy!
    Too bad your youngin’ is lactose intolerant! Ugh, there really is no substitute for a non-dairy ricotta/cheese!
    Gravy and wine, we have a glorious relationship when we interract! Harmonizing the most glorious symphony!!
    Glad you found a great recipe to use! And I totally dig the cheesecloth idea! How fanatastic! *secret* It takes me 2 days to make gravy and I sneak vegetables into the gravy that the kids have no idea exist (zuchinni, squash, carrots), its a glorious little white lie :)

    • I love those little white lies. I sneak veggies in meatloaf and burgers. Peel zucchini and shred it on the fine cheese grater. (It turns clear when it cooks.) Then mix it in the meat, cook them your favorite way, and watch the kids eat their veggies!
