Taste: Hearty Vegetable Lasagna 5 stars  

Ease of Preparation: 3 stars  

Cost: 3 stars  

This is another recipe that I was looking forward to making. The week was just full of them wasn’t it? I used the largest pot I had and still had a hard time fitting all of those noodles in the water. The sauce and veggies came together nicely as well as the massive amount of cheese.

I began layering and quickly realized that I had made too many noodles. No biggie, I like it noodly. The cheese had to be put on with my fingers to get it perfect, so my hands were a mess by the end. We even made a tiny side Lasagna with all of the leftover goodies that wouldn’t fit into the big one. The oven timing was perfect, and we had lasagna in less than 2 hours.

Lasagna is one of my favorite things, but I rarely like it in a restaurant. The sauce is too sweet or something. I don’t know. But this was perfect. All but my oldest loved it. We had my niece over for a visit, and she gobbled up the leftovers (even the mushrooms). So it was a hit.

This week I learned to read the reviews not just rely on the stars. I also learned that giving a recipe a second chance can mean victory. I can’t call this week a total win, but I still think I progressed. And that is what I’m here to do.

My Mom used to always tell me that the only time you truly fail is when you don't try. You have done an amazing job and it is SO much fun to follow your posts. I know what you mean about the extra lasagne noodles. It doesn't seem like one box is that much, but MAN it makes a lot-o-noodles!
