Last week the Missus was beaten down pretty hard by a harsh cold. On the third day into it I received a text that asked, “Can you make me chicken soup?” I, instead made the more filling, and hot sauce worthy, Chicken and Dumplings.
Feeling the need to stay on the comfort food trail, after all my goal was to feed the cold, I did something I haven’t done in about five years… I made lasagna. I’m honestly not sure why I don’t make it more often as it never turns out to be the laborious pain in the ass I seem convinced it is. And it was pretty labor intensive, but only because I made it so. Making the Mario Batali Ragu Bolognese recipe, but I did. But, in the end, it was well worth the time and effort put in. The Ragu was the only recipe I was working from, so here’s my interpretation in pictures.
