    I just made a stuffed cabbage that really seemed like a winter food but I said screw it! I’m going to buck the system, throw caution to the wind, go against the grain!

    pesto never wows me, but then again, i’ve never had a sun-dried tomato version! very creative and delicious, joanne!

  40. Lori says:

    I just saw another lasagna post and I was thinking the exact same thing. Lasagna should not be just a winter food. I’m so excited that this uses sundried tomatoes because I have a bunch to use up!

  41. You have changed my mind about baking lasagna in 98 degree, 95% humidity levels in South Carolina…..who cares how hot it gets with a lasagna such as yours! Blissful heat! I wish you didn’t live so far! We need great cooks like you down here! Grazie!

  42. Chris says:

    Exactly, just bake it outside in your gri—–

    Oh yeah, nevermind 😉

    It looks great! Alexis and I visited Larry’s (Big Dude’s Eclectic Ramblings) today and had asparagus picked straight from the ground. WOW it was so flavorful compared to store bought. it would go great in your lasagna.

  43. This looks delicious! Love the freshness of the asparagus on a normally heavy dish. Im such a sucker for Italian food and just happen to have asparagus in the fridge 🙂

  44. That is a beautiful, spring lasagna. The asparagus is a wonderful idea.

  45. Beautiful–asparagus adds that touch of spring.

  46. Oh Wow, how delicious is this? Everything going on in this is perfect!

  47. Look amazing! Almost sounds healthy =P

  48. Natalie says:

    FYI, I’m making this lasagna tonight. Two, actually. (Freezing one for a post-baby meal.) I’m way excited 🙂
