I've tried a few different recipes for lasagne, and have struggled to find one that we enjoy through the inevitable five days of leftovers. While we were up in Queensland recently, Anne (the wife of Cindy's Dad) served up a delicious effort and Cindy was switched on enough to ask her where she'd found the recipe. Turns out the Internet was the inspiration, as it so often is. Armed with a link to the recipe, an unenthusiastic Cindy and a backpack full of vegies, I decided to give it a shot for Wednesday night's meal.
It's an exhausting process: peeling, chopping and roasting a kilo of vegies, cooking up the tomato sauce, making the cheese sauce, assembling and the cooking. You need to have a couple of spare hours before hunger will kick in, otherwise you'll end up reaching for the snacks while the tray is still in the oven. Luckily, the results were worth it: the roasted vegies were tender, the pesto-based sauce tasty and the cheese sauce gooily unhealthy. Mmmmm...cheesy. There's still a little bit sitting in the fridge, but we've each had dinner and two lunches out of it so far without getting too fed up, which is high praise indeed.
