SO I decided on Giada's lasagna roll recipe for din din. Thanks big head, little body! Has anyone else ever noticed how big her head is? She's darling though and I do love her food. But seriously- look at the size of her head!
So my attempt proved fruitful. After work, practice, my workout, grocery shopping, AND THEN cooking, I got this. The ricotta, parmesan, spinach and prosciutto filler was nice. Now that I am comfortable with the recipe, I will probably opt for LESS spinach, add minced mushrooms perhaps, another cheese and diced tomatoes? And probably use a less tart tomato sauce. Oh, and I totally bought the wrong lasagna pieces, they were way too narrow, so the rolls ended up looking like little cinnamon buns instead of mannicotti-esque. Served with some broccolini on top for color and crispness :)
Almost a year ago, this Blog began as a place for me to document and share my explorations in the "Okay" town of Baltimore. With a move back to the Metropolitan area on the forefront, I will be shifting my commentary to more DC-centric content. Although I have grown to believe that Charm City is more than Okay, it is my hometown of DC and the surrounding areas that will really need to step up their game if they are going to even try and compete.
