I know, I know, where have I been, why haven't I been cooking? I have been, just not much new, etc. Been doing a lot of Trim Healthy Mama recipes that are not my own. Occasionally, I break from my diet and do something uncharacteristically decadent and naughty! (For my THM friends, these should ONLY be used in an E setting, not an S setting at all! LOL :) )
A while back, I read in a magazine about a new product line that specialized in fresh pasta. Capello's. There is Lasagna Sheets, Gnocchi and Fettuccini. Luckily, I live near a Wegman's and was able to purchase them fairly easily and not have to order them online. They were very pricey, in store they were $8.99 - which to my amazement is cheaper than they are online! And definitely not something I'm going to use on a daily basis, or even a weekly basis, maybe even not on a monthly basis. An occasional treat, yep, sure will.
I made a lasagna for my husband and son, two of the pasta lovers in my house. I believe my son eats some sort of pasta every day. I did the normal meat sauce/ricotta/mozzarella layering with the sheets and baked. They were delicious, not gummy and wonderful. I was able to make two regular lasagnas in bread pans. I also had enough to make a vegetable lasagna in a bread pan. This leads me to conclude that you'd be able to do a 9 X 13 pan fairly easily. I also had a few small segments of sheets left that I used to make a few cannolini's out of with some left over vegetable filling.
All, very, very delicious. I definitely recommend highly!
