Slo Mo Slide Sho - Buh-Bye!

"UHHHHHH Buh Bye!" Remember that from Saturday Night Live back in the day?
Well, I end on the dish I had more times this year than in my entire life ... lasagna. I initially entered recipe testing wanting to do my vegetable lasagna, but we all discussed it and thought it would be great to start my collection of recipes (teeheehee, it sounded so official when we discussed it, very neat) with a meat lasagna. First go classic, then get drastic. I just made that up :-). Here it is disassembled. I still kept true to the original idea and went heavy on the veggies (bottom left), but went heavy on the meat (top bowl). The other bowls are what make this unique ... I really try to bring influences from my travels and this is a very good example. Hope you like the twist in the recipe when it airs. And although I love it, hope I don't have lasagna for a long time, I really think I had it like 6 times this year ... way too much don'tcha think? Or am I crazy?

Here's the finished product ...



That's it! Hope you enjoyed my 2nd Slo Mo Slide Sho if you caught it in real time! Happy Holidays!

Just saw all the pics - loved it!

Anne Burrell - so, I was watching the Iron Chef and they mentioned her...she's a sous chef on there and I didn't know it. I've been watching her alllll this time and had no idea that was her. I love her...she's HILARIOUS. Tell her I said Hi - I'm a fan and I got down with her from day 1 - just like you.

I wanna come to NYC so bad and see the kitchens. Hmmm!

Haha! No such thing as too much lasagna, Sunny. I had a bumper crop of summer squash from my garden this year, and a lot of it went thin-sliced into lasagna, replacing the noodles. Had to make it 8 or 10 times to get the recipe right.

Kept the cheese, kept the meat, reduced the carbs, ate it all up, wow'd the crowds.
*smiles*

lana, see you are right, only if you switch it up like you did. i like the pasta replacement you chose, i think i can taste it now ... i really like squash. did you grill it before layering? that sounds really good ... :-) i'm a zucchini person too ... that's a good way to go with that prep.
