Once upon a time, I had a little baby named Ella (of course, her name wasn’t really Ella, but that’s not the point of this story).
My fabulous friend Kristen offered to bring over dinner the day we got back from the hospital, and of course we accepted. And this was after she’d brought us the world’s very best cupcakes in the hospital. She is an excellent friend.
When she showed up with dinner, though, Bart and I were both a bit dismayed to see that she’d made lasagna. Neither of us are huge fans of lasagna, particularly homemade lasagna.
Except this lasagna? Was incredible. Bart and I ate the entire pan by ourselves (and we’re not talking a wimpy little pan, we’re talking the full 9×13 pan) in just a couple of days.
Finally, I got the recipe from her this past year, and Bart and I have rejoiced to have lasagna that’s actually worth eating.
And, better yet, it’s a totally easy recipe. No fussy steps, no strange ingredients.
