You’ve heard of engagement chicken, right? Theory behind it is, make this chicken recipe, and you’ll get any guy to fall in love with you and soon have a ring on your finger. Chicken is great, but for my husband? I won him over with my lasagna.
I still remember the first time I brought him to my hometown to meet my parents when we were freshmen in college, almost 8 year ago. (Holy cow!) Living in a dorm at the time, I never had the opportunity to cook for him beyond the usual college fare of ramen and Easy-Mac. I knew it had to be something impressive and delicious, and coming from an Italian family, lasagna was the only answer.
I grew up learning to make lasagna from my grandmother, who would often make huge roasting pans full of lasagna at the holidays. I consulted her for her “recipe”, which consisted of random notes of “a little of this, a little of that”. Over the years of making this lasagna recipe, I’ve adapted it to make it my own, and it still is one of my husband’s favorite meals. Perfect for Sunday dinner, or make it ahead of time and heat it up for a non-fuss weeknight meal. Pair it with a salad and a loaf of garlic bread, and you’ll have a hearty dinner, plus plenty of leftovers for the week ahead.
