About this Cook
I started cooking seriously once I returned from Italy (I lived there on and off for about 3 years) about 2 years ago. I love to eat and was sick of frozen pizza and essentially all processed foods. Now I'm trying to find recipes that are simple and taste good.
My favorite things to cook
Creme brulee- it's so simple and elegant.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili was always a staple in my childhood. It's comfort food.
My cooking triumphs
Veal scallopini

Lasagne Verdi al Forno
I lived in Italy for three years. My Italian boyfriend would make a pasta al forno very similar to this and I loved it. I never wrote down his recipe and am regretting it. This is as close as I need to come. American lasagne is terrible after you've had the real kind. Thanks so much for this recipe. Mille grazie!!!!
